Elle Sera is a CT born & raised artist having lived in NYC, returning back to CT and now constantly on the move. She’s performed on Broadway, in film, tv and radio since she was a young child and now channels her observations and experiences of love, the spirit, relationships and the world around her on her debut EP. She’s got a quietly confident rock edge that reads dynamically as soulful, sometimes sweet, sometimes fiery. And you feel every bit of that in her performances. Elle Sera draws on her influences of rock, rhythm and blues, pop, americana and folk creating a vibe and sound unique to her. Her voice is described as sultry, full and powerful with just enough softness around the edges at all the right moments.
Elle Sera paired up with NYC producer Andrew Hollander to create live tracks with the band recording all in one room. “It creates that magic that happens on stage when you put everyone all together like this and just go for it. And we were able to capture something raw and intense in doing so as well. We had no rehearsals. Just went in and nailed it. Just one day and we had everything we needed” says Elle. With players Tony Scherr on guitar, John Conte on bass and Tony Mason on drums the vibe was effortless and full of surprises.
You can check out Elle Sera playing intimate rooms around the country and performing frequently in CT.
