Product Description

About the Artist

Singer, songwriter and Tony-nominated actress Elisabeth Withers is driven. More than your average Broadway star or R&B singer, Withers' artistic and humanitarian ambitions run broader, deeper and are more enduringly compassionate than any single label or box allows. As vibrant, real, and célébrons la vie as her electrifying rendition of Shug Avery in the original Broadway cast of Oprah Winfrey Presents: The Color Purple, Withers is constantly striving for greater challenges in her art and more substantive impacts in the world. Whether strumming audiences' heart-chords with soul-tingling lyrics from her Blue Note debut, It Can Happen To Anyone, or drawing on her Too Beautiful foundation to inspire young women to embrace and use their unique individualism to realize their own purpose, Elisabeth Withers' goal is nothing less than to touch the world.

These timeless ideals were fostered by Withers' loving parents and her preternaturally accomplished family of academics and scientists. Withers' Midwestern family unflinchingly supported their lone artist in her decision to train in piano and voice at the renowned Berklee School of Music in Boston and in her bold move to tackle The Big Apple. Championing their prodigal daughter in her early takeover of Manhattan's grueling audition circuit, they motivated Withers to master her craft by securing her MFA from New York University and create opportunities for herself instead of "waiting to be discovered." It was family who supported Withers' through her years as a session and background singer for A-list artists like Mary J. Blige, Erykah Badu, R. Kelly, Celine Dion and Jennifer Lopez, and Withers' early performances as a "Vowelle" on the PBS children's series Between The Lion. Their tireless encouragement paid off when Withers' talent and tenacity earned her (under her Ellé Patrice alter ego) the life-changing opportunity to co-write Billboard Top 5 club songs like "Rising" and "Emotions" with hitmaker Tony Moran (Janet, Beyonce, Cher) in 2002. By 2005, the entire family was rejoicing over the news that Withers had won over both Oprah Winfrey and Quincy Jones to land the feature role of Shug Avery as Withers' Broadway debut and eventual Tony-nominated turn.

Soon the family and critics weren't alone in cheering Withers; audiences around the world were beginning to recognize her singular talents. It wasn't long before the legendary Blue Note Records joined Withers' movement, signing and launching her as a national recording artist with the release of her critically acclaimed debut It Can Happen To Anyone. Largely self-penned by Withers, the skillfully crafted songs from her debut were quickly licensed by blue-chip companies like Corona and San Andreas for their Grand Theft Auto video game. The duel triumphs of being an acclaimed Broadway actress and major label artist, opened doors for Withers to become a darling of the speaker circuit, making featured appearances at Dr. OZ/HEALTHCORPS, VERIZON, The Uniworld Group, National Black Caucus, Odyssey Network Group, The LINKS, Omega Psi Phi Fraternity, ASCAP and the Grammy Board for Grammy's In Schools.

But, that was then, and the never complacent Withers' razor focus is on the now. With a new partner (her Musical Director, musician Damon Mendes) , new daughter, a new Broadway vehicle in the pipeline, and a bevy of new material, Withers returns to the main stage refreshed, renewed, and ready to conquer even higher horizons. Recently signed through a landmark joint agreement between E1 Music and Purpose Music Group for the release of her forthcoming project, Withers is poised to re-introduce her artistry to eager fans after a three-year hiatus. With more intimate, world-wizened songs and dynamic performances intended to lighten listeners' heart, Withers is prepping a promotional tour to rival the great women who influenced Withers' distinct sound: the honey-warmed resonance of Gladys Knight, the fiery growls of rocker Tina Turner, and the storytelling realism of Mary J. Blige. Withers' has already convinced the legendary Bill Withers (no relation) she's the real deal; leading into her tour the two will be sharing a historic duet of "Lean on Me" for the Library of Congress. Adding esteemed company like Bill Withers to her unconventional, improvisational performance style, original jams, and fierce covers of rarities like Mother's Finest "Love Changes" and Knight's "Neither One Of Us," and you just know Withers' plans to take audiences up on a moving, unpredictable ride. Anything can happen.

From transforming girls' lives with her Too Beautiful foundation to caressing the souls of fans the world over with her generous gifts as an actress and singer/songwriter, the future Carole King of soul won't rest until she's quite "Simply The Best." Her family wouldn't have it any other way.

5.0 out of 5 stars With "NO REGRETS" and no apologies. January 10, 2012
Format:MP3 Music
This is an album for the true R&B lover, because this is who she is and how she peforms. Nothing overstated, overblown or oversynthesized, this is a talented woman who relies on the power of her voice to get the message across. Her music and lyrics are amazing and she conveys that in how she sings her songs. I enjoyed this follow-up more than I did the first cd and believe that, in time, her standing in the soul music arena will become stronger.

3.0 out of 5 stars It may be the MP3... July 8, 2011
Format:MP3 Music|Verified Purchase
Let me make this clear: I am an avowed Elisabeth Withers fan. Her debut album blew me away, as it did many people. Her voice: my Lord. I saw her on Broadway in "The Color Purple". I saw her live at BB King's in NYC. I follwed her MySpace page (OK, so I'm old school). Yes. I love this woman.
Myself and other friends looked forward to her sophomore effort. We checked often for ANY mention of a forthcoming CD.
Which is why we were shocked to find out, completely by accident, that she dropped a second CD back in September 2010. What? No fanfare. No advertising worth a damn. Excuse me? Did we miss it?
I downloaded the MP3 (my new thing) instead of purchasing the CD becuse I wanted to hear it immediately. I listened. And...well...
It's good. The voice is still there. But for sheer fidelity, I was disappointed. I will blame the MP3 for the quality of the sound, the lack of "umph" that the first CD had. Her vocals were overshadowed by the rhythm tracks, keyboards and background vocalists. Sometimes I strained to hear her over all the music. Did anyone else notice this? Was this the case as far as the CD was concerned?
I liked "I Remember", "Why" and "No Regrets". Otherwise, the rest of the tracks were fairly ordinary. And ordinary is NOT for this woman and that voice.
Elisabeth: we love you. Please don't wait so long between CD's and we will look forward to being hit in the head by your next effort. XOXO

5.0 out of 5 stars A must have album September 17, 2010
By c1mack
Format:MP3 Music
Elisabeth and I are from the same home town. I had the pleasure of watching her perform in all of our high school talent shows to which she would always win. Even back in those days you could see the talent and star potential shining through this young lady like a lighthouse on a rainy night. Maybe I'm a little biased because I know her but one thing is for sure. Hearing her sing on this album gave me goose bumps the way she did back in high school at all of our talent shows. And goose bumps aren't biased and they don't lie.

5.0 out of 5 stars " NO REGRETS " August 18, 2014
Format:Audio CD
Elisabeth Withers landed the role of Shug Avery in the stage version of "A Color Purple," and listeners who haven't seen the show but want to hear what made Withers ideal as a theatrical performer should listen to her duet with Gordon Chambers on the song "Bittersweet." The cut appears on Withers album No Regrets. From the harps that introduce the song to the giant buildup to the ending crescendo, the song and Withers' performance create a dramatic and theatrical story of two old lovers who missed their chances to tell each other how they feel after a chance meeting on the street. Withers' vocals display the qualities that all theatrical singers must have - they are expressive and emotional, while her diction is as clear as a jazz singer.

One thing that can short circuit the pop star dreams of many actors who sing Broadway style numbers on the stage is that they can't make the transition from theatrical singing to pop singing. Pop singing can have some theatrical elements, as Withers' performance on "Bittersweet" shows. However, pop singers often employ more informal and conversational styles of singing, and No Regrets - similer to Withers' 2007 album It Can Happen To Anyone - shows that Withers excels in those styles as well.

The fact of the matter is that Withers is an adult singer at a time when radio often wants female vocalists to sound like 16-year old girls. Being an adult singer means that Withers has a comfort level in singing at a variety of tempos and she also has the life experience to sing anthems like the title track and "Everything is Going to Be Alright," the album's final song. On the soulful title track, Withers sings about facing the fears and challenges that come with deciding to leave the comforts of the familiar.
