Singer-songwriter Elias Krell was born in Germany, and lived in England, Greece, Honduras, and Mexico until age ten, enchanted by the sounds of crank organ, accordion, and other street musics. Her music features quirky rhythms, catching melodies, and surprising lyrics in Spanish and English. Elias has released three albums independently and her first studio album is due early 2017, recorded at the Clubhouse in Rhinebeck, New York and produced by Paul Antonell.
The new album captures Eli’s best qualities as a songwriter and vocalist. The 12 tracks on the album combine collective themes of western lifestyle, rural sensibility, and prairie passion. Eli’s thought provoking lyrics with road savvy influences meld together the unique genre combinations of country, western roots & western swing with a foot in rockabilly.
Top shelf musicians from throughout North America and the unlikely partnering of instruments like banjo and B3 organ, complemented with choice production fashions a diverse and pleasant listening experience.
