Behind the Velvet Rope
Pop singer. Born in Phoenix, Arizona. Elle trained as a dancer and performer from the early age of 6 and began her solo career in Las Vegas, Nevada. With dreams of shooting high and persistence of never giving up, her pursuit to success was never too far away. Her defiant and confident stage performances caught the attention of manager Horacio Blackwood formerly of the Dick Scott Management Group (New Kids On The Block, Boyz II Men, Patti Austin, James Ingram and Mark Walberg to name a few) and in early 2007 signed a production deal with DNM worldwide. Under the direction of Mark Fiest (producer of Destiny's Child Emotion) and songwriter Damon Sharpe (Jennifer Lopez's Love Don't Cost a Thing), Elle was given the opportunity to co-write and produce her music. The completion of her first album \'Behind the Velvet Rope,\' soon to be released, is her personal diary and tells the story of the struggles that she faced in finding herself. It is dedicated to those who did not believe in her and to those few who did. Often compared to Kelly Clarkson and Pink, Elle oozes an energetic cool like no other her age. Her infectious lyrics provide a sound track to the consumer generation while her relaxed flow speaks truth. With up-tempo tracks such as \'Keep on keepin\' on\' and \'Just be a man about it\' (comically describing what woman really want to say) the appeal is obvious. But, the sweet tones of \'Getting back to me\' and simple poignancy of \'Hard to say I\'m happy\' (lamenting the day love slipped away) set her apart through her versatility and depth.
