“Elle has a voice that hovers between the dramatic highs of Mariah Carey and the subtle shadings of Norah Jones. It’s rhythm-and-blues meets pop with a dash of sparkle. And that’s what her voice has---Sparkle.”, so scribed Frank Quattrone of Montgomery Town and Country Living Magazine.
This songbird wasn't even born when Ella Fitzgerald blessed our ears with her jazz ballads, but when the Ghanaian native heard her smooth vocals as well as those of Aretha, Billie Holiday, and other pioneers alike, she immediately knew she had found the cornerstone of her signature sound. Like some of her modern day influences, Alicia Keys and Corrine Bailey Rae, Elle creates a blissful marriage of prose and melody that embraces your heart, and feeds your soul.
In early 2011, Elle reached a major musical landmark, when her music was placed into the rotation on Pandora Radio, the largest internet radio service. She has performed alongside musical greats including Wyclef Jean, Carol Riddick, and Lauryn Hill.
Some of her major headlining venues include the legendary Warmdaddy’s Restaurant, Tropicana Casino and Hotel, Village Underground, and World Café Live. Her music has also been played on radio stations in the U.K., and Africa.
Elle continues to reel off the success of her 2008 Debut CD, “Once Upon a Time”, which has sold copies all over the world from France to Japan in the digital market. Accolades from her debut album include winning the 2008 Alternative Soul Music Award for "Song of the Year" for her song, “Understand”.
Elle has also been featured in Montgomery County Town and Country Living Magazine's Spring 2009 issue as Philadelphia area's next rising star. Elle is currently creating her sophomore album, set to be introduced to the world in late 2011, which is slated to make a huge mark. Elle has taken command of Philly’s music scene and beyond. With an ever-growing loyal group of followers, Elle is quickly soaring to the top.
