Elizabeth (Jett) Downey
Elizabeth “Jett” Downey grew up singing at the Cathedral of St. Paul, Episcopal, in Erie, PA. She earned a Bachelors' Degree in Music from the University of the South in Sewanee, Tennesse in 2000. After graduating, Jett was chosen as a Thomas J. Watson Fellow. On her Watson Fellowship she traveled alone to Europe, the Middle East, and Asia to study monastic chant.
Upon her return to the United States, she founded the East End Song Studio, a social music studio for adult singers. Through the East End Song Studio she has produced numerous recitals, productions, and events including “Birdsong,” a recital of classical and rock music about birds, “The Sun Ball,” a New Year's Waltz with music to honor the sun, and “The Sunset Soirée,” a music party which was held on the Pittsburgh Water Limo.
Jett has produced an album of Irish music called “Jack Doyle vs. Miss Irish America,” available on CDBaby.com. The album explores the connection between singing and Irish boxing. Jett is very pleased to offer music for the Unity service in Pittsburgh, PA.
