an emerging voice on the singer-songwriter scene. At times
her music is emotional and powerful. At other times, it's
light and fun. Both reflect an artist whose music belies
her young age. At only 16, Elytta's songs draw upon timeless
and generational topics such as love, family and navigating
the teenage world with all of its excitement and challenge.
'I pull from my life, my feelings, the people in my life,
as well as my hopes for the future,' comments Elytta.
Currently studying music at IAA, a world-renowned arts school, Elytta has been
influenced by a great many rock, pop and jazz artists including The Beatles, Corinne
Bailey Rae, Bob Dylan, Esperanza Spalding, Taylor Swift, and Sade. Her talent was
recognized at a young age by her teachers and music instructors who encouraged her to
keep writing and practicing, learning about both performance and allowing herself to be
vulnerable in her music.
'I hope to reach a much wider
audience with my music, but I really just write for myself,'
said Elytta. Her music is intimate and personal. Notable
musicians and music producers are already taking notice.
