ARMONK, N.Y. -- A Byram Hills graduate is returning home Wednesday night.
Elizabeth Pryce Davies will be performing at the North Caste Public Library tonight at 7 p.m. along with two friends, Rachel Laitman and Robbie Torries.
The concert will be a 12-song set, featuring original material by Laitman and covers by Pryce Davies. Pryce Davies has known Laitman since she was 5 and they performed in high school theater and choir together, while she met Torres performing a play called "The Four Seasons" at the Angel Orensanz Center in Greenwich Village.
"It's me and an old friend and me and a new friend," Pryce Davies said. "The show will be us on stage in our artistic journey with a focus on storytelling. Even though it's a concert, we have a theatrical background."
Pryce Davies will be performing songs by Adele, The Beatles, Tracy Chapman, some old standards and Dolly Parton.
She began performing when she was 5 and trained at the Guthrie Actor Training Program at the University of Minnesota. She took classes in Manhattan throughout middle school and has been singing in clubs in New York and Westchester since she was 14.
This fall she will be in an Off Broadway show called "Towards the Moon" at the East 59th Street Theater and she performs once a month at the Duplex Cabaret in Greenwich Village.
She recently shot a short film called "Fighting Shape," about a woman who turns to kickboxing after breaking up with her boyfriend.
Pryce Davies said she is influenced by old blues singers like Otis Redding, and rock singers like Janis Joplin. Adele is another influence.
"Adele has a really authentic voice and songwriting style," Pryce Davies said. "I just love her."
Having been performing at the North Castle Public Library since she was 10, Pryce Davies is relishing the return home.
"It's nice to see how I've grown as a person and a performer," Pryce Davies said. "I'm doing things I never thought I would."
It was performing as Lily in a production of "Annie" at the library that led to her parents taking her acting dreams seriously.
"I have a lot of respect and gratitude to that space," Pryce Davies said. "They allowed me to play, discover and be free. It's the foundation for what I carry with me as an artist. It really informed what I value."
