Meet Elise Lieberth

Today we’d like to introduce you to Elise Lieberth.

So, before we jump into specific questions about your work, why don’t you give us some details about you and your story.
I am a singer/songwriter and owner of a virtual skincare company as a consultant for Rodan+Fields.

I have sung my whole life and always knew that was the gift God had given me and writing came really natural to me as well, I was a bit of a broken child and experienced many unfortunate life experiences way too young, music was often the only way I could cope and writing was very healing for me. I knew from a young age that I wanted to use my gifts to help others. In 2010, I decided to save my pennies to put out an original album. It was quite an investment, but I knew I had to at the very least record some of the songs I had written so that I had no regrets in life. Little did I know, I’d grow a YouTube following of extremely supportive “fans” who have anxiously awaited my songs, videos, and albums throughout the years. I haven’t released music in over six years but my songs are continually streamed on Spotify over 10,000 times daily and I truly feel honored to know people are still listening to my songs!!

After finding love, getting married and having more babies, raising teenagers and toddlers, I decided to focus on motherhood and my growing family. I spent a lot of time soul searching, hours in therapy, discovering my confidence and loving the skin that I’m in. I’ve grown a successful skincare business from my home that has helped afford me the opportunity to chase my dream of singing, writing and recording once more while never missing a moment with my kids. I’m excited to announce that I just finished recording my 3rd original album, titled ‘Invincible’ and I can’t wait to release it!!

Has it been a smooth road?
No way, but nothing worth fighting for ever really is, right?

I had intentions of moving to Nashville after high school to pursue music in a really big way, however, life had other plans for me. I found myself madly in love and I before I knew it, I was pregnant at 17, married at 19, 2nd child by 20 and divorced by 21. I lived a lifetime in those three years but was still such a baby myself.

I didn’t know if I’d ever get to pursue my passion for music while juggling the single mom life when I was working 2-3 jobs barely able to provide for myself let alone two children. I happened to meet a very talented producer Tyler Ward and knew I had to pursue what I felt called to do.

Thankfully I had a very supportive family who cared for my children while I ran from one job to the other to the studio to the next job during the three months I recorded the first album.

Once I released my songs and videos on YouTube, some really amazing things happened,  a collaboration with several artists went viral and my album was very well received.  I was thrilled!! With exposure comes the haters. I dealt with some negative feedback about my appearance, skin, and weight and after a few years I began to believe that I wasn’t pretty enough for the music industry. One of the main reasons I haven’t released music in so long is because of the depression I went through beating myself up, not feeling good or pretty enough and battling severe acne.

I’ve done a ton of therapy, self- development and inner work on myself over the past two years and have come to recognize the incredible support I’ve had along the way far outweighing the negative. For every 50 positive comments I’d receive, I’d get 1 negative comment and of course, I would dwell on the negative comments. I recognize now, if someone can be that nasty, especially behind a computer screen that it is not a ME thing, it’s a their heart thing and I am choosing to say a prayer for them instead of letting negativity pull me into a tailspin of depression.

I suffered from severe acne and allowed that to hold me back from continuing to pursue music, even leaving my house was difficult. I was isolating myself and it wasn’t healthy. I’m thankful I found Rodan + Fields, (the skincare company I represent) because it completely cleared my skin and has given me a newfound confidence that I never even knew I was missing, allowing me to chase my dreams in a really big way.

Love over hate, forgiveness over grudges and not passing judgment on others, that’s the way I’m choosing to combat any obstacles that come my way nowadays and it feels good!

Please tell us more about what you do, what you are currently focused on and most proud of.
I’m a singer/songwriter and virtual skincare business owner, I typically write pop and country songs. I love to put my own spin on cover songs as well. I am an open book, I’ve been through a lot, from rape, abuse, abandonment, being cheated on, being kidnapped, married, divorced, married again, motherhood, PTSD, depression, my father being murdered and much more.

My mission is to write authentic, raw and true songs that help others who have struggled with similar experiences and inspire them to not let their past define them, to always strive to do better and to realize how worthy of greatness everyone is. I want to help others find their confidence again, fall in love with their skin and love who they are. I want to empower and inspire others to keep going, to seek help when they need it and find community. I want to share with everyone that they are wonderfully made and created by God and He loves them.

Let’s touch on your thoughts about our city – what do you like the most and least?
I was born and raised in Denver and can’t imagine ever moving. I love how the mountains are just a short drive away, the city life is great and adventure is right out my door.

I don’t really care for the traffic or the high real estate prices, but I don’t think I’ll ever leave.
