Inspired by global traditions of sacred sound, devotional, world, folk and conscious dance music, and guided by her love and dedication to the healing spirit of music, Elise's songstress creativity ranges from composing devotional and melodic mantra songs, through to contemporary folk-songs. She also collaborates with poets and spoken word artists to create uniquely woven music and poetry performances.
Elise conducts voice workshops, runs retreats and tours in the UK and abroad. She is also a trained Life Coach, Yoga Teacher & Pilates Instructor, with a background in professional dance and the performing arts.
She finds great joy and purpose in guiding groups in a musical exploration of the ancient wisdom of the yoga mantras through the powerful practice of group devotional singing, where the music we co-create becomes a vehicle for prayer, transformation, healing, celebration and unity.
Her most recent “new folk” album 'Scarlet Begonias' (2017) guides listeners on a thought-provoking, autobiographical voyage, laden with tender heartfelt tales of love, grief, adventures and nature's inspirational gifts.
