Band to Join.


“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"

"...Elaine has an incredible voice"

I had the privilege of making music for 13 years with friend and fabulous guitarist Ivan Lee - together we were the acoustic duo IvyLane! We recently (Mar 1, 2020) performed our last show as a duo and Ivan (& his amazing wife) have relocated to sunny CA. I'll be putting together a new duo in the near future...stay tuned! Meanwhile, revisit some of the IvyLane fun from over the years at ./ivylanetunes and .IvyLaneTunes

I perform solo vocals for weddings and other special events (usually w/wonderful guitar accompaniment), and also sing Jazz at various local venues.

Occasionally I sit in with "the boys" of Miles From Chicago, lending female vocals to this all-star band's lineup of rock, pop, blues, & R&B dance tunes...music to get you moving! From time to time I also join 3 Trick Pony on vocals, performing always live, always danceable tunes of the 70s, 80s, 90s, and today. And when the stars align I get to perform with some of the top jazz talent in the Greater Seattle Area.

Previously, I enjoyed my time as lead female vocalist for 7.5 years 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.

Vocal Training:
I've worked with Robert Lunte at The Vocalist Studio International here in Seattle for some serious, cutting-edge vocal training (.thevocaliststudio), am currently working with Dr. Kari Ragan & Jordyn Day, and am also studying with the one and only jazz queen Greta Matassa.
