Singer-songwriter Elizabete Balčus is a promising young Latvian artist who not only writes but also sings her own songs. She intensifies the effect of her amazing vocal performances by adding different instruments, such as the piano, the harp, the flute and the cello, to her show. Given her academic musical education she plays most of the instruments herself which often turns her performances into impressive one-woman-shows.
Her first EP earned the young artist, who is considered a style icon in Latvia, broad critical acclaim as well as the prestigious “Best Debut/Newcomer” award at the Latvian Annual Music Record Awards ceremony.
She considers her music to belong to the genres of indie, baroque, pop and dream pop. Those witnessing Elizabete Balčus live on stage experience the sensation of being transported into a hazy state of dreamy motion that resonates with them long after the performance.
Elizabete Balčus is also successful as a member of the Latvian band Sus Dungo which hit the ground running in 2013 when it released its critically acclaimed debut album.
