Watch out for up and coming singer/songwriter ELLE (pronounced EL-LE). The young effervescent 22 year old already has a wealth of experience behind her. Born into an entertainment family (her mother is entertainer Angela Ayers) at the young age of 15, Australian born Elle, then residing in N.Z. won a $10,000 grant from New Zealand on Air under the New Artist Scheme with her debut single “So Typical” which she co-wrote with Chartsong Productions Stuart Stuart from Brisbane.
This consequently led her to win the 2007 Musicoz Award for Best Original Song in the International Category bringing her attention to several Recording Companies. Although yet to be signed she has been under the guiding eye of Michael Taylor of Universal Music for the last 5 years.
Moving back to Sydney with her family she started work on her next EP with Ben Richards from the Wollongong band Porcelain fame which led to her being a support act to singer/songwriter Jordan Millar for his CD launch.( Jordan has supported artists such as The Fray, Cliff Richard, Delta Goodrem, Ian Moss and most recently Christina Perri).
The last 5 years has seen Elle developing her song writing skills with various Writers and Producers in Sydney and Melbourne. Most recently she has been writing songs for X Factor finalists with Michael Tan who is Johnny Ruffo’s (3rd in 2011 X Factor) Musical Director.
Elle has built up quite a strong fan base performing in and around Sydney with her original and covers acoustic style duo. Her electrifying vocals and quirky personality brings magic to the stage wherever she performs.
Last year she notched up over 250 live gigs to her credit working at venues regularly as the Iconic Opera Bar where she performs either as an acoustic duo, trio or band, or with DJ Kit Lennon, the Clovelly Hotel, Ravesis Hotel, Oceans Bar in Coogee, Icebergs at Bondi as well as various other private and corporate functions.
Elle is proud to announce the release of her new EP titled “Little Hearts”. Elle says “This has been an amazing journey for me and I cannot thank my friend, musician, producer and co-writer Jordan Millar enough for his ongoing belief in me. I believe that I have found my genre and am really excited to be able to share it finally with you all”.
“Elle Harris electrifies the Sydney Opera House each and every time she plays. Her one-of-a kind sound, coupled with an amazing stage presence, engages and enthralls the crowd always. Elle is a rare find and without a doubt the most talented and popular artist performing at Opera Bar. Her absorbing sound and ability to attract and captivate an audience are unmatched. ” John Gallas, General Manager – Opera Bar
