Elyse Johnson, also known as “Elle”, is a smooth, sensual, sultry, yet powerful thirty something year old soulful singer/song writer/poetess hailing from Queens New York. Her father, who is not only an avid jazz lover, but an accomplished saxophone player in his own right, cultivated Elle’s love for music at an early age. She has been singing and supporting many underground groups for the last 10 years. Now it’s Elle’s turn shine like the ray of light she is.
“Elle” has been blessed to headline many packed showcases at the once famous now defunct Sweetwater’s, as well as opening for many acts including Ray, Goodman and Brown and the jazz group Pieces of a Dream. She has had the good fortune to be featured on one of the CD''s of jazz drummer extraordinaire Lenny White. She has also regularly performed on Paltalk Internet radio as well as Da Nawlinz Groove podcast show and Vocalized Ink radio, which are all international known.
It is the music of Chaka Khan, who with her vocal skill has ability to relay her emotions with a song - made it clear to Elle that she had to sing. “Chaka Khan is the reason I sing today,” Elle responds when asked why she loves writing and performing. “Chaka Khan is the truth!”
Natalie Cole, Patrice Rushen, Anita Baker, Sade and Brenda Russell are huge influences in Elle’s musical life. “Sade’s smooth throatiness talks to me, shows me it’s ok not to sing happy songs all the time, while Brenda Russell’s music proves that people really will listen if they can relate to the things I write about.” Elle explains.
When listening to Elle you hear the smoothness of Sade, the fire of Chaka Khan, the simplistic truth of Brenda Russell’s writing style and a dash of Anita Baker’s sultry tones. It’s truly a “melting pot of emotions” for your ears.
Elle is a true lover of love songs. When "I love you" is said in a unique way, it gets her attention. Elle truly believes in the power of love and it shows in her work. Most of Elle’s poetry/songs are about life’s up''s, down''s, high’s and lows. Her delivery is such that anyone with a heart can relate.
Elle is currently working on her latest project entitled Something Special. A collection of R&B, jazz, Pop, Funk, and Spoken Word Poetry, wrapped in a blanket of soulful music created by a dynamic duo of hot instrumentalists out of Ohio known as “Da Wonda Twinz”.
Elle says “Life is beautiful...even when it’s raining; there is something to smile and be thankful about. Take each moment and make it a memory.” Music… no matter the genre must come from within your soul."
“When you listen with your heart, only then are you truly able to feel the essence of...Elle.”
