Born and raised just outside of Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, Elizabeth P.W. started her musical career as a trombone player.

She gives a guest lecture at the New York University’s Tisch School of the Arts on effective collaboration between film directors and composers. Elizabeth’s music has been played at Oscar-qualifying film festivals worldwide, including the Cannes Film Festival Short Film Corner, Frameline, Hollyshorts, and Urbanworld Film Festival.
In 2017, Elizabeth worked in the music department on the American Theatre Wing Centennial Gala where she arranged and produced music for a tribute to the famed Stage Door Canteen. She also maintains an active freelance life as a trombonist, ukulele player, and music educator.
In 2018, Elizabeth partnered with the innovative non-profit, Emily’s Entourage, to turn her debut single into a fundraising and awareness campaign to fight rare mutations of Cystic Fibrosis. The song, “Anyway” is performed by two-time Tony nominee Laura Osnes (Grease, Cinderella, Bandstand), Gideon Glick (Spring Awakening, Significant Other), Christy Altomare (Mamma Mia, Anastasia), Javier Muñoz (In The Heights, Hamilton) and Sarah Levy (Netflix’s Schitt’s Creek).
