Born in Los Angeles, raised in small-town Wisconsin, and newly transplanted back to the West Coast, singer-songwriter Elyse brings a sound entirely her own to the LA music scene. Pulling inspiration from artists like Cat Power, Feist, Fiona Apple, and Florence and the Machine, Elyse laces her self-proclaimed “sad girl piano music” with nude, bold lyricism stemming from her background in poetry. Raw, personal, emotional, and often viscerally honest, Elyse’s sound is simple and unafraid.
A kismet introduction to Producer Jason Lowrie (Good Villain Records) led the two to blend their styles and nostalgia for the moody grit of the 90's feminine alternative underground to create Elyse’s debut EP "Afterlife" (due out Spring 2018). Her first single "Not The Girl For You,” released February 2018, gives a taste of what is to come. Deeply bare and haunting, Elyse holds nothing back.
