Biography

Selected as one of Canada's Top 20 Under 20 by Youth in Motion (2010) with an international tour under her belt , eighteen year old Elyse Simpson's immediate vocals and physical guitar bleed through deep seated lyrics to create progressive Folk Fusion Playing over 100 live shows at venues including Arlene's Grocery (New York, NY), The Marina Hotel (Long Beach, CA) Jello Martini Lounge (Montreal, QC) and The Rainbow (Ottawa, ON), Simpson uses a diversely eclectic pool of influences to build an energetic, layered performance. Building booming anthems about seeing contrast and collective uncertainty, Simpson channels classical roots, an upbringing including Tom Waits and Dire Straits and a love of both electric and acoustic guitar. Tied together with lyrics including “The potency of your impatience is turning me off" and “Got a tambourine soul and a record heart" connect her audience through a personal and expansive experience. Called the "Female Bob Dylan" by IAE Magazine (2010) and accepted to Berklee College of Music for Vocal and Music Business for Spring 2011 Elyse's love for the industry as well as the craft adds a passionate severity within her development. Driven by spirituality, a barking respect, genuine love and a sultry inclination towards performing, Elyse Simpson breathes sincerity from a fiery core.

John Mayer is the man- his Trio stuff that is unreal.

BTW I was under the impression that legally, we are not aloud to post cover songs without the bands consent. Legal problems or no?

Prince sued a bunch of indie artist who put a tribute album of covers together for him- just a heads up!

Kinda sad that you don't like John Mayer, he is a very talented musician. I like you music though, I bet we could make some cool music together.
