Elizabeth and the Catapult at the World Cafe Live

XPN Free at Noon at the World Cafe Live.
A co-production of WXPN and NPR Music.

Elizabeth and the Catapult Elizabeth and the Catapult is trio with the heart of a child and the wisdom of a seasoned pro.

Known for their jazz-tinged brand of indie pop, Elizabeth and the Catapult slowly gained success in the Big Apple, recording their self-titled EP there. On their new full-length release, Taller Children, the trio's chamber pop melodies groove and sway under the effortless power of Ziman's sassy vocals.

Elizabeth and the Catapult successfully find their way through the best of pop, jazz, and rock, combining it in a fresh and exciting way.
