Elise, 19 years old, from San Francisco Bay Area just released her independently produced album BLEU on 8/18/18. 8 total songs streaming on all platforms now. Previous work, e.p., MILK, can be found on her SoundCloud (released 2017 freshman year of college). Self-learning how to make beats by messing around with software, this loving and positive soul enjoying her last year of being a teen brings you the elevated, nostalgic, and playful alternative pop music that makes you appreciate the simple things in life, everything she represents. Jaxson Caroll also plugs her with beats for some of the tracks she writes too (“he sent me the beats for Gucci, Coco Sugar belle, Wally World, Boys and Jam Sport, and Velcro..He’s so talented”). Inspired by primary colors, this is the beginning spectrum of her career. Tyler the Creator and Hall & Oates also influences her sound.
This album signifies the end of her self given alias “bleu” — “bc I always wanted to be her and now that I am her, I’m putting that dream to rest…I wanted to be her bc she was confident, creative, and knew she was capable of: more than just projects that stayed on my laptop, never to be heard or critiqued” Q: what do you hope to achieve entering the music industry? A: “I just want to be someone’s favorite song one day” -elise.. Watch her music video for WallyWorld below…
