    Elizabeth South is not your average singer/songwriter. She is also a full-time elementary music and drama teacher. She pursues her goal of a worldwide music ministry to both young and old with as much passion as she always devotes to her teaching.

    Elizabeth’s music explores the eclectic styles of country, theater, spirituality, romance, ballad, and even dance. She pours her heart into every song she writes. Her Music Therapy background has also found a home in her music, being both healing and uplifting.  Her voice has been described as dynamic, mysterious, magical, soothing, and angelic.

    Since Elizabeth first began singing in public when she was about seven years old, she has been involved in many live performances, singing solos at various venues, singing in choirs and musicals, and performing in various plays including several at the North Carolina Theater. As part of her artistic development, she attended prominent schools such as the North Carolina School of the Arts and New York University (NYU), where she studied in the musical theater program and in the drama program at the Tisch School of the Arts. She has two undergraduate degrees, one in drama and the other in Music Therapy, and she also received a Master of Arts in Teaching at UNC-Chapel Hill. She now teaches music and drama full time in a prominent elementary private school in Durham, NC.

    Elizabeth has worked in Nashville, TN, with a number of musicians, engineers, and other persons in the music field. She has completed six albums in connection with her producer, Billy Smiley, who was the founder and writer for the rock group White Heart. In May of 2009, Smiley heard Elizabeth’s song, “Have Faith,” and corresponded with her about producing that song for release worldwide. So they got together in Nashville and co-wrote twelve songs for her 2010 debut release called The Mysteries Of Our Minds.

    Elizabeth’s second album, Do It Afraid, was released on November 1, 2011. Her inspiration for this album and the song came after she surprisingly developed stage fright several years ago. One morning when she was terrified of a particular upcoming performance, she read a book written by Joyce Meyer that was called “Do It Afraid.” Elizabeth was immediately inspired to write the song, “Do It Afraid,” after reading that book.

    Elizabeth released her third album, a beautiful Christmas six pack on December 1, 2011. Just A Prayer Away, her fourth album, is a Worship EP that Elizabeth released only digitally during the summer of 2012.

    The song, “Don’t Give Up” was so popular among Elizabeth’s students that she teaches that they encouraged her to record more rock, dance, country, and upbeat songs. So Elizabeth decided to go back in the summer of 2012 to Nashville, TN, and record her fifth album called I Love You.

    Elizabeth’s cover of Disney’s Frozen “Let It Go” was the first place Winner in the Ryan Seacrest March Music Madness Best Cover of Idina Menzel’s “Let It Go” Contest. She also released The Disney Album on December 19, 2014.

    Elizabeth concludes with this thought, “If I can take my music to the larger world, then I will feel as if I have come full circle from being that little girl who just loved to sing to being the accomplished artist who is able to do what I was made to do.”

    Elizabeth, one of the greatest artists. I love being a fan. An artist filled with love and encouragement. I am so thankful for her. Her voice is so pure and amazing. A gift from God! An artist that did it on her own and she has reached so much! It's never too late and I am glad she made the choice to make music, because she is very talented. Elizabeth, if you will ever read this, I love being a fan of you because you are so amazing!
