I am a guitar player/singer songwriter based in LA and this is the way my music has been described... "A hint of Joni Mitchell, a hint of Norah Jones, a hint of Corinne Bailey Rae and Beth Orton... accompanied by a band of amazing jazz musicians."

Biography

Having been nominated for Record of the year at the 2010 Los Angeles Music Awards and performed and toured with the a-cappella singing group "Petra Haden & the Sellouts", led by the amazing Petra Haden, Italian-born singer/songwriter/guitarist Elena Degl’innocenti brings a unique blend of music styles to the stage. Blessed with an incredible voice, her superb stylized vocals are the perfect compliment to the sweet and tender ballads, playful, lyrical story lines and folky-jazzy-pop influences that create the originality of this talented artist.

After studying contemporary Jazz back home in Italy, Élena developed a passion for this singing style that she has perfected. She moved to Los Angeles to attend the Musician’s Institute an then graduated from Ucla where she studied music composition and songwriting.

Élena’s debut album, “Question Marks” is a collection of fresh, original compositions that mix her diverse musical influences, from Jazz to Pop to Latin, with a hint of Folk.
The album features musicians such as Tom Brechtlein (Chick Corea, Wayne Shorter,Robben Ford), Brian Allen (Jamey Johnson,Sara Bareilles) Giulio Carmassi (Emmy Rossum), Paulie Cerra (Stevie Wonder, Lionel Richie) and many more.

Élena has performed in venues throughout the country such as: Getty Center Theatre, Tangier, Pantages Theatre, Bordello, Eagle Rock Music Festival – 2007, Safari Sam’s, Tonic – NY, NY, World Café Live – Philadelphia, Museum of Fine Arts – Boston, Sound Lab – Buffalo, NY, Warhol – Pittsburgh, PA.
She keeps performing around California and the East Coast with her band, ‘the Innocents,’ (taken from her last name).
