Elle McAndrews gracefully weaves the best parts of pop, jazz, folk and soul. The classically trained musician and professional music therapist approach her craft from a profoundly authentic and tender disposition. Elle’s music takes you on a scenic walk through her creative mind. Her songs are drenched in emotion, soul and undeniable talent. She has travelled the world extensively, simultaneously chasing love and running from it. These experiences have shaped her worldview and become intrinsically linked to her powerful songwriting.
