Los Angeles-based artist Eliza Petrosyan is an experienced guitarist and versatile musician. She is a graduate of the USC Thornton Popular Music Performance Program, where she has had the opportunity to study with trailblazers in the music industry including Patrice Rushen, Paul Jackson Jr., and Sean Holt. Her background is in classical guitar, which she started learning at the age of ten. Today, Eliza tours as a side-musician and does session work. She is skilled in a variety of styles, including funk, RnB, folk, rock, pop, and classical music. Her top priorities in any musical setting are being prepared, serving the music, and connecting with others.
Eliza has played guitar on tour and locally with artists such as Chloe George, Chappell Roan, Zolita, WiztheMC, Tora-i and countless others. She also runs playback for many of the artists she works with. In December of 2021, she had the opportunity to play guitar with Säje, Patrice Rushen, and Terri Lynn Carrington for an event called Rhythms and Revolution: Race, Gender, and Jazz.
Eliza is also passionate about using music as a vessel for strengthening community. Whether it is through producing virtual benefit concerts for humanitarian aid, volunteering as a guitar teacher and band coach for Rock n’ Roll Camp for Girls LA every summer, or creating programs for community events, she recognizes the power that music has to bring people together. Through her work, Eliza hopes to empower people who are often underrepresented in music.
