Vox n Plux combines the Anderson-Fader Guitar Duo with noted soprano Elizabeth Farnum. Though newly established, the Duo have been performing and recording with Ms. Farnum for 2 decades, as members of the two-guitar based Cygnus Ensemble. The Trio has been heard in concerts in New York, New Jersey, San Francisco and other states. Vox n Plux specializes in contemporary music, especially the work of American composers, and also performs music by the early masters (Monteverdi, Dowland, Bach). The trio also offers voice paired with other instruments, including classical and electric guitars, mandolin, banjo and theorbo.

Praised by the New York Times for her “honeyed tone”, Elizabeth Farnum is one of today’s most highly sought-after vocalists in the field of modern music.   Widely known for her high level of musicianship, versatility and range, she has presented modern works in venues such as Lincoln Center, Alice Tully Hall, London's Institute for Contemporary Art, the American Academy at Rome and the Concertgebouw in Amsterdam, collaborating with such composers as Samuel Adler, Anthony Braxton, Lucas Foss, Ricky Ian Gordon, John Harbison, Peter Schickele, Charles Wuorinen and John Zorn. She has appeared as a guest soloist with many prominent modern music ensembles throughout the US and Europe, and appeared in a featured role in the U.S. premiere of Pascal Dusapin's To Be Sung, presented by L'opera Francais.  Elizabeth maintains an interest in many diverse musical styles, and her various interests have led her to performances on Broadway, at the Metropolitan Opera, and throughout the world on tour with acclaimed early music groups Pomerium and the Waverly Consort.  In the oratorio and concert fields, Elizabeth has appeared as soloist with, among others, the Brooklyn Philharmonic, the American Symphony Orchestra, the Riverside Symphony, the La Jolla Symphony and Musica Sacra.  A prolific studio artist, Elizabeth has been featured on over 30 recordings, four of which were nominated for Grammy awards.
