Hello, I’m Elizabeth! I’m a freshman at Washington High School, right here in San Francisco! Music is pretty much my life. My first memory is of music and I’ve grown up around it my whole life. I enjoy Post Hardcore, Pop Punk, Oldies Rock, Death Metal, and some softer stuff like Ed Sheeran, The Fray and Twenty One Pilots. In “The Never Ending Soundtrack That Is My Life”, you will hear covers of songs that are important to me and hardcore-gone-acoustic interpretations with some original songs mixed in.
For my first song, I have decided to cover “Hospital For Souls” by Bring Me The Horizon. I chose this song because it’s all about the difficulties lead singer, Oliver Sykes had to go through to recover from his drug addiction and suicidal thoughts. Thankfully he is better now. Originally, the song fits into the hard rock / death metal genre with copious screaming, so I decided to do an acoustic version. Why? Because I can’t scream without hurting myself and I find it a bit more emotional. Take a listen and let me know what you think!
