“Elaine has a significant voice that commands attention, whether she's singing a ballad, a blues tune or plain old R & B”
“Elaine's style makes for a great connection between audiences and the music. She almost never stops smiling--and better, it's joy and you know it.”
“A beautiful woman who can sing *anything*...”
"What a beautiful, expressive voice!"
"Elaine, your sultry sounds are wonderful and mesmerizing"

I'm lead female vocalist for the Seattle area's high-energy band The Tropics, performing everything from Elvis and Etta to No Doubt and Aerosmith and everything danceable in between.
I've also had the privilege of making music for 15 years with friend and fabulous guitarist Ivan Lee - together we are the acoustic duo IvyLane. Visit us at ./ivylanetunes and .IvyLaneTunes
Recently (2023) I've joined up with Seattle's only Eric Clapton Tribute band, Bell Bottom Blues, on backing vocals. We cover all the very best of Clapton's music including Cream & Derek and the Dominoes.
I also perform solo vocals for weddings and other special events (usually w/wonderful guitar accompaniment), and occasionally sing Jazz at various local venues.
From time to time I sit in with local bands, including Miles From Chicago, 3 Trick Pony, and Raucous. And when the stars align I get to perform with some of the top jazz talent in the Greater Seattle Area.
I've worked with Kelly Harland, Robert Lunte at The Vocalist Studio, with Dr. Kari Ragan, the incredible Jordyn Day, and also with Seattle jazz queen Greta Matassa.
