Elon was born in a small city south of New Orleans called Houma.  As an artist that fuses rock, pop, funk, and urban sounds, her voice is often described as a “mix between Macy Gray, Missy Elliot, and Mary J. Blige.” Being from such a culturally rich place as Southeastern Louisiana, Elon was surrounded by music.  She was able to whistle before she uttered her first words, served as drum major and student conductor in junior high and high school, and could also be heard leading songs with her church choir on Sunday mornings. After high school, Elon continued her musical journey by accepting a scholarship to Agnes Scott College in Decatur, Georgia.  Although she began learning in-depth musical theories and participating in a program that would otherwise take her down the path of becoming a professional horn player or symphony conductor, her attention was directed towards music production.

  “It wasn’t until I was making beats, writing, and singing hooks with a rapper in Atlanta that fans started to notice my voice,” says Elon. “Their belief in me was the reason I decided to make the transition to try a solo career. That transition sparked the EP.”Elon knew she had a lot of work to do in order to keep up with the ever-changing music industry. She started experimenting with different styles of music in order to create her signature sound.  She used her knowledge of music theory and influences from the likes of legends such as Missy Elliot, Michael Jackson, Etta James, Janis Joplin, Alicia Keys, and Tina Tuner as well as other cultures to dig deeper than most producers were doing at the time. Elon’s mission was to create music that transcends different genres and age groups. Elon tapped into her life experiences to write, compose, and perform her own music, thus serving as inspiration for her soon to be released EP: Only Elon. “With the help of Tom Drummond and a few key musicians in New Orleans, this EP was released as a polished piece of insight to my life. The inspiration for this journey came from the struggles I’ve been through and the loves that I’ve lost.”Only Elon features six powerful songs that include: Get Offa Me; I Mean That; I Want You; The Kids; On It; and Us.

Following her release of “Only Elon,” she plans to promote her EP as part of a much broader portfolio showcasing her versatility while working on film and television placements.
