Biography

"New Jersey is a dump for generic breakdowns and hardcore music. Elodie is a breath of fresh air in the monotony." - Chainsaw Media

Since 2006 Elodie has been extremely driven to write and perform on a professional level. Their influences range from pop punk, hardcore, alternative, and indie, which all help define the original sound produced. A few influential bands within these genres include A Day to Remember, Four Year Strong, Circa Survive, Silverstein, Underoath, Set Your Goals, and more. All in one, throw catchy, melodic choruses and intense, powerful breakdowns in a cup of coffee with a few spoons of pleasant dancable bridges and Elodie has been created.

Originally starting in 2006 with Peter D'elia, Chris Aguayo, Montana Voetglin, Austin Peer, and Chris Kirkwood, Elodie developed and tightened up as a band for two years. During this time period, Elodie participated in the Jersey Shows Original Music Competition, which was a 10-month battle of the bands starting with over 350 older and more experienced bands. Having the finals take place at the legendary Starland Ballroom, Elodie won $2000 along with an extensive prize package in the competition. In addition to this, Elodie has performed at tons of venues around the tri-state area, gaining new fans and aknowledgement from a myriad of promoters.

In early 2009, Elodie parted ways with their original singer, Austin Peer and original bassist, Chris Kirkwood due to musical differences. Fortunately, Elodie was easily able to find their current singer Julius Trombino and bassist Billy Franco in no time. Julius Trombino, a 16-year-old talented pop-songwriter, has won "Song of the Year" with 2 of his original pop songs. He fits perfectly with Elodie to help create more catchy and structured music, while adding his own style to make it more original. Billy Franco is 16 years old and is an experienced bassist who has performed with other original bands prior to Elodie. His talent and energy are showcased in his solid, melodic basslines and his stage presence. Guitarist Chris Aguayo is 18 years old and writes the majority of Elodie's music. As many of Elodie's songs are guitar-driven, his lead parts and solos add a sense of dynamics to the band. He also backs up the lead vocals with harmonies and throws in a little bit of screamo to add to each songs intensity. Peter D'elia is 17 years old and is an experienced guitarist who supports many leads with strong guitar harmonies and complex rhythms. He is also a talented songwriter and adds his own unique taste to every Elodie song. Montana Voetglin is 19-years-old and holds the bones of the band together with his consistant and powerful drumming. His remarkable energy on stage solidifies each performance. Elodie has been able to connect with several different audiences and uses all professional gear to keep a clean, crisp sound for all performances.

Elodie has performed at both national and regional venues such as The Starland Ballroom, The Stone Pony, The Crocodile Rock Cafe, and more. Having played an impressive roster of shows with recognized bands, performances are filled with nothing but passionate energy while maintaining the same flawlessness they have on recording. Energetic and extremely respectful towards the band, Elodie's fans have shown nothing but support these past few years, and Elodie is looking to gain even more support from new & diverse audiences.

Most recently, Elodie has been in the studio, recording three brand new songs. These original songs all vary in style within their genre and showcase their consistant development and maturity.

Lyrics

Fumes

Written By: Elodie

Under my words, in between my lines I hide my mind
I found out my self-concious is one of a kind!
Every image black and white
I see it in the sky tonight
And now its time for a fight song
As if the fumes consume my lungs
Because of my art I will die young
But at least, at least, it was fun, oh it was fun
Tonight, oh I'm under the sky
But tomorrow, oh I'm under the water, oh I'm under the water
Pull the carpet from under me (from under me)
Pull the carpet from under me
Undo the ropes, untie me free (tie me free)
Pull the carpet from under me
Undo the ropes, untie me free (tie me free)
(Untie me free)
Under my words, in between my lines I hide my mind
I found out my self-concious is one of a kind!
Every image black and white
I see it in the sky tonight
And now its time for a fight song
And because of my art I will die young, will die young
Tonight, oh I'm under the sky
But tomorrow, oh I'm under the water, oh I'm under the water
Believe me when your under the water, you can still feel the thunder (Pull the carpet from under me! Feel the thunder!)

Almost Home

Written By: Elodie

Sing me a lulluby, put me asleep tonight, I promise I won't find you
Sing me a lulluby, put me asleep tonight, I promise I won't find you
(You're almost home, but your too far away)
Sing me a lulluby, put me asleep tonight, I promise I won't find you
(You're almost home, but your too far away)
A great epidemic is coming our way
Give me something, anything to say
Oh I'm choking up, oh I'm choking up
You're almost home and almost gone
You're almost home and oh so wrong (you're almost home)
You're almost home and almost gone
You're almost home and oh so wrong (you're almost home)
Sing me a lulluby, put me asleep tonight
Sing me a lulluby, put me asleep tonight, I promise I won't find you
A great epidemic is coming our way
Give me something, anything to say
Oh I'm choking up, I'm choking up
You're almost home and almost gone
You're almost home and oh so wrong (you're almost home)
You're almost home and almost gone
You're almost home and oh so wrong (you're almost home)
Sing out if you've got monotone
Sing out in the words of your own
Sing out if you've got monotone
Sing out in the words of your own
(Sing out)
And everyday we take one step forward
And every night we take two steps backwards
And everyday, and every night

Where the Action is

Written By: Elodie

Oh!
It's time to let go right now
I'm not gonna make it happen
It's time to let go right now
Do you trust gravity tonight?
Let you fall because gravity doesn't think that your too small
And oh, whoa, now I think you know that I know that it's finally time to let go
I think you know that know
Take one and finally slow down
Let your feet never leave the ground
And when you finally know this
Can I meet you where the action is?
Can I meet you where the action is?
Can I meet you where the action is?
This is where the action is
Reaching for you my shadow crawls up the wall (this is where the action is)
Oh, whoa, now I think you know that I know that it's finally time to let go (time to let go, time to let go)
Now I think you know that I know that it's finally time to let go
Oh, whoa, now I think you know that I know that it's finally time to let go
Now I think you know that I know that it's finally time to let go
Now I think you know that I know that it's finally time to let go!
Can I meet you where the action is?
Can I meet you where the action is?
Can I meet you where the action is?
Can I meet you where the action is?

Don't Worry, it Happens to the Best of Us

Written By: Elodie

Break through the bandages
And where we go the street lights burn out
Break through the bandages
That gives me something, something to sing about
Something to sing about (We'll burn it down!)
Break through the bandages
And where we go the street lights burn out
That gives me something, something to sing about
Something to sing about
Something to sing about
I see the world from here, I've got a cloud over my head
Put a smile on my face
I've gotta get myself out of this place before I burn it down (We'll burn it down!)
With the rest of this town, I swear I'm gonna burn it down
With the rest of this town, (with the rest of this town)
I swear I'm gonna burn it down
'Cause all I know is that my words can't save me now (Save me now!)
And all I know is that my words can't save me (and all I know is that my words can't save me now)
And all I know is that my words can't save me (and all I know is that my words can't save me now)(all I know)
And all I know is that my words can't save me (and all I know is that my words can't save me now)(all I know)
Don't worry, it happens to the best of us
It happens to the best of us
It happens to the best of us
Don't worry, it happens to the best of us
It happens to the best of us
It happens to the best of us
Don't worry, it happens to the best of us
Break through the bandages
And where we go the street lights burn out
That gives me something, (break through the bandages)
something to sing about
Something to sing about
Something to sing about
Something to sing about
And all I know is that my words can't save me, and all I know is that my words can't save me now
And all I know is that my words can't save me, and all I know is that my words can't save me now
And all I know is that my words can't save me now
