"I first witnessed Elena's work when she opened for The Waifs at The Capital Theatre in Bendigo in 2015. She played a solo acoustic set to a packed house of 450 people and had every audience member in the palm of her hand for her entire set. To call Elena's performance 'engaging' doesn't do her justice. She shares more than stories, melodies and rhythms through her music, she imparts joy. We love having Elena on our program at Bendigo Blues & Roots Music Festival and hope she keeps making the journey to perform with us for many years to come." - Colin Thompson, Bendigo Blues and Roots Founder and Director

Hi Folks,

Its been a very long time, not so good at keeping up with all this online promotion stuff. However I do like to write when I do have something happy to share. So the good news is you will have a full 10 track album from me that is recorded at a good studio with sweet sounds. I am very excited to share it with you. I have some very special players on this album and I think its going to be a special share for me. So on the 1 of November it will be available online and at my gigs. Its inspired by Uluru and much of the land I have lived on in Australia. Its also inspired by the people who are active in changing the world and want to see an end to corruption and greed. Its something made from the heart and thats all I can do. Have a beautiful week friends and always good to send you love and joy. So have fun and stay you and keep on the light side of life. Love Elena

Mini Tour with The Waifs

Well I just did a mini tour with The Waifs, what a beautiful experience. I have never played in Theatre's like that before and was a wonderful thing to try out. Have to say thanks to the crowds who watched me doing something new. I have played festivals before but sit down theatres are a different feel. The Waifs are great teachers in the art of performing. I really love how they play together and bring so much joy to the community. Thanks to Bendigo, Thorbury and Newcastle crowds for being so warm and welcoming. I am back in Byron Bay now, ready to record my full length album. Have the name picked out and the studio is ready. 6 tracks I will write and 6 I will make up in the studio as I always do. I have a great feeling about this album and will love making it. Hope to have it out and tour it by the end of the year. Stay happy people and have fun doing what you love. On my way to Tasmania for 10 days, may write some and enjoy long walks in the wild. My first trip to Taz, so this is going to be amazing.

Melbourne and Newcastle Gig Dates Soon

Looks like I will have a few shows coming up in Melbourne and Newcastle end of March early June 2015. Keep you in the loop with full info soon my friends.
