An unpredictable new voice in roots music, Elle Winston takes her training in classical technique and introduces it to her love of folk, blues and jazz traditions. Born in the midwest, raised in the southwest, and currently spreading love in Brooklyn, NY, her story is anything but linear. With lyrics that cut through the noise and colors ranging from the softest whisper to a guttural scream, witnessing her live and listening to her storytelling is a shocking reminder of the urgency of American music.
