"If Sheryl Crow, Faith Hill and Sarah McLachlan mated to reproduce a musical child; it could be Elle B. Willson. Pay attention to this project and artist. It's artistry and musical sensibilities fill a void left open bya a lack or creativity in the music industry." Tommy Faragher, producer

Biography

Elle B. Willson’s Debut CD Release Concert Monday, March 30, 2009 Highline Ballroom, New York City 7pm

"I had $200 in my pocket, a dream and a relentless determination to create. I stopped trying to get anywhere in the music industry and decided that since I am an artist: wherever I am "is" the music industry." Elle B. Willson

What transpired inthe making of Elle B's Debut recording, JUST ME, is a result of passion, listening, talent, preparedness, gratitude luck and allowing. JUST ME is physical evidence that dreams come true to regular folks. "There was no reality TV show competition, no sugar daddy, no insider connection - just me." This recording was produced independently and turned out to be the quality of a major label recording with the top talent in the world.

What attracted Grammy Nominated Producer Tommy Faragher to this project is the electricity and vibrancy of the artist, the opportunity to work with really great musicians and the satisfaction of songs with a lot of substance and depth as well as commercial viability. It is graced with the artistry and generoustiy of Pete Thomas and Davey Faragher (Elvis Costello's rhythm section), Val McCallum on guitar (Jackson Browne), Neil Larsen on Hammond (Rickie Lee Jones) and Four Time Grammy Award Winner, Neil Dorfsman, mixing engineer (Sting, Dire Straight, Paul McCartney).

"Pay attention to this artist and project. It's artistry and musical sensibilities fill a void left open by a lack of creativity in the music industry."

Silent

Written By: Elle B. Willson

SILENT Written by: Elle B. Willson
ASCAP© 2006


Silent all these years
Don’t know how to release my fears
How I wish they’d disappear
So Silent all these years

Silent all these years
Couldn’t hold back all the tears
All this time hasn’t made it clear
So Silent all these years

Tell me why does it have to be this way?
Give me back my life- I didn’t see it slip and fade.
I used to laugh I used to play – How did I get this way?
Silent.

Silent all these years
With a smile that’s insincere
Only silence perseveres
So silent all these years

Tell me why does it have to be this way? Give me back my life- I didn’t see it slip and fade.
I used to laugh I used to play – How did I get this way?
Silent. Silent.

Hold me love me
Kiss away these tears
Teach me, trust me
End the silence, end the silence, end the silence

I’ve been Silent all these year
Don’t know how to release my fears
How I wish they’d disappear
So Silent all these years

Tell me why does it have to be this way?
Give me back my life- I didn’t see it slip and fade
I used to laugh I used to play – How did I get this way?

Does it have to be this way?
I didn’t see it slip away
How did I get this way?
Silent. Silent. Silent.

Give Me Wings

Give Me Wings

Lyrics by: Elle B. Willson ASCAP
Another day begins and more pain emerges
And you’re not here
Familiar’s different now
The ordinary strange

I roll over to give you your morning kiss
You’re not there, but I think I sense you here with me
You’ve gone but I still feel your presence
Here with me vibrant and alive

Have I gone mad or are you still right here with me?
When I start to feel pain, I think of you
And the silence is filled peace
Your presence gives me hope
Give Me Wings

Be still and know that I am with you
Hear the poetry and brilliance in the moon
Don’t give up my friend
Don’t give up my friend
Don’t give up my friend…believe

I wish you were here to see our baby walk
And how much everyone is missing you
Nothing tastes the same anymore
Give me Wings

Be still and know that I am with you
Hear the poetry and brilliance in the moon
Don’t give up my friend
Don’t give up my friend
Don’t give up my friend… believe

I know where you are you can see
Just how small things look, “perspectively”
Lend me your eyes to ease away the pain
Give me Wings

Only Today

Written By: Elle B. Willson

ONLY TODAY
Written by Elle B. Willson
ASCAP © 2006

It may not have happened yet
Perhaps it never will
So many things like frozen dreams
Give my heart a chill

Was I too young, too scared, too late
Did opportunity pass me by?
Did I not see what was in front of me ‘Cuz I was focused on a lie?

Only today
As far as I can see
Please don’t ask about the future
Today is all I can conceive.

A lie of the mind
Is the very worst kind
Dressed up in “what’s supposed to be” To camouflage the kill

I cried today ‘cuz I am sad
For all that I don’t feel
Is this it for me – all there ever be?
Or wonders to reveal

Only today
As far as I can see
Please don’t ask about the future
Today is all I can conceive.

Stop, breath, take a look and chill
Stop, breath, take a look and chill

Only today
As far as I can see
Please don’t ask about the future
Today is all I can conceive
Only today
And that’s as far as I can see
Please don’t ask about the future Please don’t ask about the future
Please don’t ask about the future
Today is all I can conceive
