Elizabeth Tomboulian cut her teeth on folk and blues, migrating from Arkansas to Houston. She lived above the iconic Sand Mountain Coffee House and performed on guitar in Montrose during its singer-songwriter heydays. She discovered free jazz at there and met Tony Campisi, who taught jazz improvisation at University of Houston. She was the first to enroll as a vocalist.
New Orleans was her next stop, she gigging on Bourbon Street. She walked in while a manager was on the phone hearing news the pianist had died. She was in the Charles Neville House Band at NOLA Jazz and Heritage Festival.
New Orleans catapulted her to Colorado, where she was opening act at the Blue Note Boulder. 1980 began seven years in studios in Nashville, recording with Sam Rouths group The Lost Renes and her comps with the 10-piece band, Whatever It Takes and as a background singer/arranger.
She journeyed home to Arkansas, where she met her husband, Lee, and dove into the music of Uruguay and Brazil with Circo Verde, 6-piece Latin jazz group. She was part of the White Album Project, performing the Beatles album in concert. She helped found IntraArts a non-profit, bringing Art Lande to Little Rock.
They moved to Denton in 1993. While working at UNT, she sang in Jazz Singers, Denton Bach Choir, and Circo. Uruguayan Maestro Hugo Fattoruso produced, North/South Convergence, mostly Tomboulian comps. A second CD, Return to Whenever released in 2006.
2005 she met Bobby McFerrin and Rhiannon at the Omega Institute, sparking her Quantum Energetics Healing practice. Six years in Wisconsin, teaching voice in high schools and jazz vocals at Northwoods Jazz Camp, eventually led to the move to NYC, where she served on the Board of Trustees at Edgar Cayce NY Center, teaching workshops in Quantum Sound Healing. She gigs in Manhattan and Long Island as a solo artist and featured vocalist.
Now shes Music Director at Unitarian Universalist Congregation of the Palisades in Englewood, NJ.
