The Grammy-nominated artist has appeared on NPR, Austin City Limits, Mountain Stage, etown, XM, Air America Radio and has toured with Richard Thompson, Patty Griffin and Mary Chapin Carpenter. In February of 2003, she was inducted into the Austin Music Hall of Fame. The induction placed Eliza alongside an exclusive list of Austin Music Hall of Fame greats, including Willie Nelson, Townes Van Zandt, Nanci Griffith, Billy Joe Shaver, Butch Hancock, Joe Ely and others. In 2006, she was recognized with 3 Austin Music Awards and 4 Folk Alliance Music Awards, one of which was for 'Song of the Year' for her tune 'Man of God.' Eliza's meditative tune 'Requiem,' written as a prayer for those who lost lives in the devastating tsunami in Southeast Asia, was recorded by the nationally recognized choral group Conspirare and was nominated for a Grammy. It was also featured on NPR's All Things Considered. Her album Beautiful World was called 'one of the best folk albums of 2008' by the Utne Reader, and her 2010 project with Lucy Kaplansky and John Gorka called Red Horse charted on Billboard and was one of the most played folk albums of the year. Now, Eliza Gilkyson releases her highly anticipated new solo album called Roses at the End of Time, available on Red House Records.
