Elizabeth Darby started writing songs in 1978. She started her college career as a music major but switched to English when she was offered a full scholarship in Journalism and English. In 1979 she and Philadelphian George Shinn wrote a 2-act musical called Stages, with 20 original songs.

Nancy Bringhurst and Darby became writing partners a few years ago when they were both teaching at the same independent school and have many songs in their repertoire. When Darby collaborates with Bringhurst she writes the music only.

Darby currently teaches English as a Second Language at the University of Pennsylvania, primarily in the business English programs.

She plays accompanies piano violist, Victoria Matosich, in area restaurants and private parties. Darby has written a song for the restaurant where she and Matosich have played for 10 years, and it will be recorded and launched very soon. Their latest song is 'Song for Women,' a celebration of how far women have come.

Darby also writes instrumental music for films. She has just started a new business, that of writing personal songs for all special occasions.

She and Bringhurst have written a song entitled "Women's Song" which will be launched at a benefit concert for Beyond Breast Cancer in Philadelphia on June 15, and will be sung by singer Eileen Duffy.
