A classically trained musician and gifted lyricist, Elle Winston’s music draws from her blues filled Arizona beginnings. Her sound is a blend of soulful, jazz inspired, American roots music. On her debut album, The Buy Back, the powerhouse vocalist explores identity, power, and vulnerability through the lens of her life in Brooklyn with her wife.
The Buy Back has received coverage from Billboard, Elton John's "The Rocket Hour" on Beats 1 Radio, AFROPUNK, Curve Magazine, and Singers Room. The full album is currently available on iTunes, Google Play, Spotify, Tidal and at Rough Trade in Brooklyn, New York.
Elle has previously releases two EP's, Who Said It Was Simple? in 2011 and Uncertainty in 2013. She has supported a wide range of artists, including Gil-Scott Heron and Joan Jett. Throughout 2017, Elle has been featured at the Billboard Lounge at Barclays Center, the Apollo Music Cafe, City Winery NYC and on Apple Beats 1 Radio. Most recently, she completed her first nationwide tour - highlights included the Mile of Music Festival in Appleton, WI; Valley Bar in Phoenix, AZ; The Peppermint Club in Los Angeles, CA; and Mercury Lounge in NYC.
