Liz Bacon Brownson

Marketing Visionary | Lover of Low Notes


Deemed "expressive" (Oregonian) and "able to tell a story with every note" (Artslandia), Liz made her professional singing debut at the tender age of 9 in Austin,TX. Climbing up on a barstool to sing Ernest Tubb harmonies in her mama's honky tonk band, she soon realized she would do (just about) anything to be on the stage.  She was often paid in red licorice back then and she was really OK with that. 


As life would have it, Liz soon found herself in Portland, OR, where she attended Portland State University’s celebrated music school and began working with some of the best musicians in town. Her ties to the diverse Portland music scene combined with her talent have offered her tremendous opportunities.She has performed with Portland Opera, Opera Theater Oregon, Clackamas Repertory Theater, Mock’s Crest Theater, and in concert with Stephanie Schneiderman, Bryan Free, Rachel Taylor Brown, The Ahs, Roxy Consort, Hanz Araki, Katherine Claire, Resonance Ensemble, Portland Vocal Consort, Third Angle and Portland Cello Project.

She has been a featured vocalist on a number of premiere recording projects, including singing backup vocals for popular Singer-Songwriter, Stephanie Schneiderman on her album
Live at the Old Church and for the amazing Hanz Araki and Katherine Claire’s album: As I Roved Out: Songs of Spring


When she isn't singing and marketing for The Js - you can find Liz singing cabaret or working as a freelance marketing creative where she puts the ELATION in public relations and finds pure joy in discovering new fonts, contributing to social media blogs, and immersing herself in color palettes. 


Liz is a proud mama, a happy wife, a bleeding heart liberal, and in case you were wondering, she will no longer accept red licorice as payment (a girl's gotta eat...).
