Does anyone recognize this typeface or know of a few that are similar to it?
I don't think this is a font, because some of the letters are hard to read (that 'a' is more like a 'q'), and because the identical letters don't look the same.
Elizabeth Script is sort of uneven and quirky like your sample.

Calligraphy as Mike says - not a font
alright well would you be able to tell me if a typeface exists that looks a little more like this? If not what do you think letters like this were made from like a brush and ink or a bamboo pen?
Brush (like the kind used for traditional Japanese or Chinese calligraphy) and ink.
I've never encountered a font that mimics this look--most typefaces are more uniform. Other options to add to the suggestion above:
Nice suggestion, Nick, and much closer than my attempts....
Good find Nick. Gizmo really has the feel of brush or bamboo pen ink soaking unevenly into paper. I believe most readers would not notice that most letters are formed completely differently than the ID sample.
Nick made Gizmo.
Nick - just a heads up that the Trademarks link doesn't work.
Thanks Mike for the clarification.
Congrats Nick on a unique font.
Thanks. The trademark link has nothing to do eith me. I don't actually sell Gizmo on my site as I haven't updated it to OpenType yet.

Carumba Plain is something I've used before which, despite not being script, has a heavy brush look to it:
