Elizabeth Tomboulian: "Loves in Need of Love Today " CD release
After the Pulse nightclub shootings, Stevie Wonder's song came to mind as the remedy for the hate and violence present in the world. ET, LT and producers Roseanna Vitro and Paul Wickliffe arranged and recorded 11 songs of love broken, in need of repair, naughty, bluesy, and high-flying with the message that Love and Music have the power to heal.
Elizabeth Tomboulian cut her teeth on folk and blues then discovered jazz in Houston, where she evolved from Montrose singer-songwriter to featured vocalist at the Shell Club. New Orleans was her next stop, gigging on Bourbon Street and joining the Charles Neville House Band at NOLA Jazz and Heritage Festival. NOLA catapulted her to Colorado, where she was opening act at the Blue Note Boulder. Seven years in studios in Nashville, recording her comps with 10-piece band, Whatever It Takes.
In Texas at UNT, she sang in Jazz Singers, Denton Bach Choir, and Circo. Uruguayan Maestro Hugo Fattoruso produced, North/South Convergence, mostly Tomboulian comps, with a second Circo CD, Return to Whenever." A week with Bobby McFerrin and Rhiannon at the Omega Institute, sparked her Quantum Energetics Healing practice. Six years in Wisconsin, teaching voice in high schools and jazz vocals at Northwoods Jazz Camp, eventually led to the move to NYC, where she served on the Board of Trustees at Edgar Cayce NY Center, teaching workshops in Quantum Sound Healing. She gigs in Manhattan and Long Island as a solo artist and featured vocalist, and Music Director of Unitarian Universalist Congregation of the Palisades in Englewood, NJ.
