PENS EYE VIEW
Elsie is an Australian independent artist, whose music resides at the intersection of soul, Motown, R&B and pop. Performing with her band, Elsie and The Vibe, Elsie's explosive tracks have been compared with the sounds of Amy Winehouse, Joss Stone and Alicia Keys.
In November 2016, Elsie released her "electrifying and monumental" (Ohestee) debut single, Riverside. The track received strong support from Australian community radio, double J, ABC radio national, national and international media and was selected as a finalist in the Unsigned Only competition. The track is a "sultry throwback of soul and R&B that builds slowly to a cavalcade of aural delights" (Flea Market Funk) and garnered Elsie significant attention.
Off the back of the successful release of Riverside, Elsie and the Vibe toured the US East Coast with performances including Launch Music Conference and Festival (Pennsylvania), the Jersey Shore Festival (New Jersey) and Earth Day Festival (New York). While in the US, Elsie also performed at a number of prominent New York music venues including Pianos, The Bowery Electric, Groove, Fat Baby, Silvana and the iconic Rockwood Music Hall.
Elsie and The Vibe’s live show is dynamic and full of energy, with her huge tracks brought to life with a 10 piece band. “She contrasts her set, diving between fast, pumping songs and slower, sensual ballads with ease.” (Beat Magazine)
Her debut EP was released in August 2017. It was produced by Robert Upward (emaar, Shelley Segal) and Jonathan Dreyfus (Gretta Ray, Lama), and mixed and mastered by Lindsay Gravina (Eskimo Joe, Thirsty Merc). “The Vibe” features Rob Muinos (Saskwatch), Olaf Scott (Saskwatch, Dorsal Fins), Justin Olsson (LANKS, Oh Pep!), Louis Gill (the OMG’s, Noah Earp) and Adam Rigley (The Badloves).
Elsie released the EP with a packed show at Melbourne's The Toff in Town, recently opened for Mayfield at Chapel off Chapel for Stonnington’s Summer Series and supported American RnB artist Lloyd at his Melbourne show.
Elsie has received significant recognition for her works thus far. Elsie's debut single was selected as a finalist in the vocal performance category of the Unsigned Only Competition 2017 and the AAA/Alternative category of the International Acoustic Music Awards 2018. Elise was also a semi-finalist in 4 categories of the UK Songwriting Contest 2017. Recently, Elise won the prestigious 'Song of The Month' contest judged by Dale Kawashima (Past President of Sony/ATV Music in the US) as well as The Akademia Music Award for Best R&B/ Soul Song' in the August 2018 Akademia Music Awards.
