Littlefoot is the stage name of keyboardist/vocalist Elizabeth (Beth Ann) McDowell. She began playing shows at a small on-campus venue at the University of Wisconsin Eau Claire called The Cabin and after graduating, moved to Italy. Over the years, Littlefoot became familiar with the jazz scene of Bologna which led to her eventually meeting and becoming close friends with the prog band, Addamanera. Littlefoot was then asked to perform vocals and keyboards first live, and then on what would become their album "L'uomo che si pensava quell'altro", released on the label Trovarobato in 2011 as a free digital download. Recording vocals for Mimes of Wine, as well as for Mariposa on "Oily Way" (Best Company) and "Poco pił in lą" (self titled), and contributing performances for the label's now well-known live radio talk show, Maggazeno Bis, Littlefoot began to establish herself in the local indie scene in Bologna. She also helped form the band Barbie Ferrari, which released a self-titled EP in 2008.
Upon her return to the U.S., Littlefoot helped write and record several tracks with the band Wolf In A Spacesuit, but found difficulty in her fresh move from Italy to traveling back and forth from Chicago, and ended up leaving the band. The winter that then passed was "the most harrowing, horrible winter of my life". After making it thru, in November of 2010, the project of Littlefoot was born. Her release to date is "Mermanity" on the Soothing Almonds Collective label.
