Trailblazing music journalist who currently writes classical music articles on female composers for Women’s Philharmonic Advocacy. Previous bylines include features for BBC Music Magazine, Clarinet & Sax Magazine, I Care If You Listen, Classical Music UK and Naxos. Elizabeth’s expertise and passion extend to all genres of music and moving forward she relishes the opportunity to contribute articles about jazz, pop, rock, musicals, soundtracks, and other genres. Firmly committed to gender and racial equity, particularly interested in writing about women in music.
Elizabeth has established herself as a ground-breaking journalist, in May 2022 she became the first writer in the world to pen a feature article on the Creole Romantics school of composers. This year she also became the first British person to write feature articles on legendary Japanese film composer Michiru Oshima, South Korean composer Young-Ja Lee and Kazakh composer Gaziza Zhubanova.
As a mixed-race female music journalist, she also leads the way. In 2019 she became the first woman of colour to contribute to Illuminate Women’s Music blog, in 2021 she became the first woman of colour to contribute to Naxos’s Explore Classical Music blog and in March 2022 she became the first woman of colour to contribute to the Women’s Philharmonic Advocacy blog – Feminist in the Concert Hall. To this day she remains the only female contributor of colour at all three organisations.
