Elizabeth Zimmerman is an Ames singer-songwriter and pianist, leaning toward soul, jazz, blues, and folk/rock styles. Collaboration, nostalgia and early influences inspired Zimmerman’s latest album, titled Roots of Rhythm. The album makes use of a variety of moods, instrumentation, arrangements and rhythms. The title comes from Paul Simon’s song “Under African Skies,” from which Zimmerman drew many ideas for the album.
