With the help of Baby Einsteins, Ellise starting singing when she was very young. She describes her sound as pop but "with a very dark edge" with darker lyrics. She is influenced by several artists like Billie Eilish and Ariana Grande, but doesn't focus so much on the artists themselves.
"I don't really look at certain people, but more like certain things that artists do and kind of pull that together as inspiration."
Ellise's first time on stage was in front of a small group at a Back to School night in fourth grade. She performed Kelly Clarkson's "Because of You" and remembers being nervous, but knew from that moment on that she wanted to be a singer.
"Everyone was cheering and clapping for me and I realized 'oh wow, this is sick' and I want to keep doing this forever.
She hopes to work with Cashmere Cat, Mura Masa & similar "weird, cool dj's" in the future. Ellise has more music and a few music videos on the way and we're so excited to see what else she has in store for us! See the full episode of the Launch below.
