Elyza is an accomplished musician, who started her career in college honing her craft of classical French horn and singing musical theatre tunes. After 11 years of french horn and music theory, she dropped it all to sing rock n’ roll and jam on her tenor ukulele. Most recently, Elyza decided to settle back into her folk roots, rollin’ rock, bluegrass, folk, and uke into neon laced music dubbed Bleaugrass. Currently she is a singer/instrumentalist in her own solo band.
Having been versed in the art of improv at the Groundlings, learning sitcom and audition technique at Scott Sedita studios, and performing in both the Cricket Feet Showcase and the Twenty Something Showcase, Elyza has a strong foundation for great funny moments. She’s even done stand up at the Comedy Store. But nonetheless, Elyza’s flare for drama is still alive and well. She also studied at AMDA, getting to sing, dance, and act all day long for musical theatre.
Recently, she enjoyed co-founding the band, Wildwood Bleau. Songwriting and gathering the members was the first fun step, but then she greatly enjoyed putting together all of the written and visual copy and logos and teaching the boys about stage/photo presence. With her background in performance, speaking, teaching everything from elementary school to yoga, photography, healing and health coaching, she decided to launch a coaching support system around branding for performers and healers in April of 2017.

When she’s not singing or acting, Elyza can be seen at dancing and doing yoga anywhere and everywhere around NYC, flying on a trapeze, learning another new adventure, or getting intimate with strangers with street photography.
