Elizabeth and the Catapult perform on Mountain Stage, recorded live at the Culture Center Theater in Charleston, W.Va.

In his introduction of singer Elizabeth Ziman, host Larry Groce lauds her as "one of the finest songwriters and one of the nicest voices out there today." Ziman studied classical piano until age 16, at which point she shifted her focus toward singing, and in 2002 she toured as a backing vocalist for soul great Patti Austin. She formed her own band after returning to New York, collaborating with a rotating cast of musicians, some of whom later formed the group Lucius.

Known for her fusion of coffeehouse folk, scrappy jazz and daring indie pop, Ziman opens her set with an entrancing solo piano cover of Daniel Johnston's "True Love Will Find You in the End." Her latest album, Like It Never Happened, came out earlier this year.

Set List
  • "True Love Will Find You In The End/Thank You"
  • "I Wish I Didn't"
