MUSICIAN

Recognized as a founding member of triple-platinum selling group Rusted Root, Liz Berlin’s creativity has grown to be a viable force in any project she applies herself to. Over the course of 30 years Liz has toured the country with Santana, the Allman Brothers, Joan Osborne, Sting, Dave Matthews Band, Sheryl Crow, Page and Plant, Jewel, The Wailers, The Grateful Dead and many more.  She has appeared with Rusted Root on numerous national television shows such as David Letterman, Conan O’Brien and VH-1’s Hard Rock Live, and their music has been featured in several films and TV shows such as Ice Age, Twister, and various MTV programs. Rusted Root’s large and loyal following has proven to be a significant draw on tour regardless of radio play, press or record sales. And their performances have come to be known as somewhat of a celebration. But that is only part of who she is.

Singing as a child with the Children’s Festival Chorus, Pittsburgh Symphony Orchestra and the Pittsburgh Opera was the beginning of Liz Berlin’s journey through the worlds of folk, pop, rock, and various ethnic influences, through which she has created her own unique artistic style. As a solo artist, Liz Berlin’s performances are highly anticipated. She is also a member of Drowning Clowns which is fast becoming a regional draw and gaining international attention, with songs featured in numerous skateboard videos by band member and professional skateboarder Evan Smith and others. And Liz has teamed up with one of Pittsburgh’s favorite jazz divas, Phat Man Dee, on a new project, “Social Justice Disco: Songs to Fight Fascists By”. But most recently, a new collaboration with Table Syndicate is taking Liz Berlin into a new realm of musical expression, merging her songwriting with their lush EDM soundscapes.
