We all know the stories of how creative people get into the business of creating for a living, but how did they start using their imaginations in the first place? On the Beginnings podcast, writer and performer Andy Beckerman asks well-known and up-and-coming comedians, musicians, writers and artists about their earliest creative acts and about other formative childhood experiences.

On today's show, I talk to musician Elisa Ambrogio. In 2001, Elisa started the indie rock band Magik Markers with her childhood friend Leah Quimby. After touring with Sonic Youth in 2004, they released their first album on Thurston Moore's label, and continued to release albums and gain acclaim. Recently, Elisa recorded her first solo album The Immortalist, which was just released on the brilliant label Drag City. And it's one of the best albums to come out this year.
