Eliza Gilkyson is a politically minded, poetically gifted singer-songwriter, who has become one of the most respected musicians in folk and Americana music circles. The Grammy-nominated artist has appeared on NPR, Austin City Limits, Mountain Stage, etown, Sirius/XM, Air America Radio and has toured with Richard Thompson, Patty Griffin and Mary Chapin Carpenter.
The daughter of legendary songwriter Terry Gilkyson, Eliza grew up in Los Angeles knowing that her life would revolve around music. As a teenager, she recorded demos for her father, an accomplished songwriter whose songs have been covered by artists as diverse as Dean Martin, Johnny Cash (“Memories Are Made of This”) and the White Stripes.
In the past year, Eliza has been busy, recording two new albums. Last summer she released the Billboard-charting recording, Red Horse, with friends and fellow Red House songwriters John Gorka and Lucy Kaplansky, and now she releases Roses at the End of Time, her first new solo recording in three years. Like the tracks she recorded for Red Horse, this new album was produced by her son Cisco Ryder and recorded in her hometown of Austin, Texas.
