“Five Minutes With” Calgary Alternative Pop Artist E.L.F.

E.L.F. is the artist name of Emilie Louise Feldberg, an emerging young musician from Calgary, Alberta. Her songs are strongly inspired by her political views, the impact of her environment on her, and the regular life of a seventeen year old today. She has studied music for most of her life, receiving training in classical studies as well as performing indie music. Emilie has taught both piano and voice, and plays multiple musical instruments. She completed the royal conservatory of music grades in voice, and uses her knowledge of vocal technique and classical styles to inspire her songs. She first became inspired by activism through feminism at a young age, and has attended protests throughout her city. Since then, her music reflects what she sees in the world around her.
