Elena, born and raised in South Minneapolis, has been singing, writing, dancing and dreaming since she learned to talk. Her deep passion for music took root at age 7, inspired by Leann Rime's version of "Amazing Grace". She began teaching herself guitar at 18, and a decade after a brief stint of piano lessons as a child, picked up keys as well at 19. She began training in the circus at age 7 and continues to train as an aerialist to this day. Her open mind and "try everything once" attitude fuels her drive to explore, travel the world and encounter all the strange people in it. Her vision is to use her influence as an artist to inspire and empower others to chase their dreams and to advocate for positive social and community progress, peace and acceptance. She currently resides in Minneapolis, but due to a consistent case of wanderlust she is always on the go, traveling as often as she can. She is currently gigging around town and writing new material. Her musical style is always evolving, but can be described as a jazzical-pop sound.
