After logging several years as a coffeehouse singer/songwriter, Elizabeth Harper began focusing on electronic music in 2009 with the help of producers Mark Richardson and Scott Rosenthal. A Philadelphia native, Richardson first appeared on Harperâ€™s radar several years prior, when he remixed a song from her debut album. Harper preferred Richardsonâ€™s version to the original, and the two eventually reconvened in Brooklyn, where they began fusing Harperâ€™s pop songs with sampled drumbeats and synthesized instruments. Rosenthal also joined the project, and Class Actress made their studio debut with 2010â€™s Journal of Ardency, an electro-pop EP that took its cues from Madonna, Depeche Mode, and the fellow Brooklyn-based band Chairlift. After hooking up with Carpark Records, the group released its first album, Rapprocher, in October of 2011. ~ Andrew LeaheyPortions of Content Provided by Rovi Corporation.
