Raised in Ottawa, Canada, Elle fell in love with music at a very young age. By age 9, she was teaching herself to play piano and guitar using online tutorials, dabbling in an eclectic range of genres, participating in her school's choir, recording YouTube covers, and playing concerts for her peers. Eventually, however, she came full-circle to the music she was raised on, R&B, ready to cultivate her own sound and her own message.To harness her uniqueness, she started producing her own music entirely, making herself a one-woman operation.
"90's R&B is where all of my most profound inspirations come from — artists like Aaliyah, Janet Jackson, Ashanti, Destiny's Child, and Mariah Carey — I can only hope to portray that in combination with a modern edge, successfully in my own sound. I decided the best possible way to make sure that my sound is my own, is by making myself accountable for the entire song-making process, from start to finish." Elle released her debut EP, "Better Off" in April 2020, setting the tone for the rest of her career.
