Born to a South African father and a mother from New York in the very last year of the
millennium. Raised on The Carpenters, Green Day, and 80s New Wave. Her music inspiration
first occurred at six years old when she heard the haunting piano melody in “My Immortal” by
Evanescence during a five-hour plane ride as she played it repeatedly. She immediately begged
her parents for piano lessons and her musical journey began, usually practicing at five in the
morning before school each day much to her parents’ dismay.
Life changed when her family bought the game Rockband for Xbox. After mastering the drums
to The Red Hot Chili Peppers’ "Dani California” on Expert Mode, Elise was determined to
convince her parents that she now needed drum lessons. Honing her musical skills through The
School of Rock and playing in her high school jazz band and the hard work of 10,000+ hours of
practicing, Elise has built a massive fanbase through her self-produced YouTube videos, social
media platforms and touring both as a solo looping artist and with her band. She has performed
on The Jimmy Kimmel Show and shot a video for the Amazon Prime Academy Award nominated
picture “The Sound of Metal” which also featured Blink 182 drummer Travis Barker and Paul
Raci, co-star of the movie.
Recently, Elise had the honor of writing songs with Andy Summers from The Police and playing
drums in Seals band. Elise is currently writing with some of the top writers in Nashville and Los
Angeles as she is working towards her first full album release planned for early 2022.
