Elise Velle is a former lead singer from CIRQUE DU SOLEIL,
having performed over 350 times in front of 1,500 people.
She's now back with a new proposition, for which she drew inspiration from the Baroque composer Henry Purcell from the 17th century, who famously inspired: The Who, the music from A Clockwork Orange, and other contemporary artists.
Her new concept is a condensed chirurgical work that manages to synthesise electronic with atmospheric chic jazzy soul vibes.
Having worked with the CIRQUE from 1993 till 2005, she performed in Las Vegas, Montréal (in front of 200,000 people), Paris, New York, Toronto, Vancouver, Amsterdam, Santiago (Chili).
She previously launched many albums on several major labels such as MCA, Universal, BMG, RCA, Polygram with René Dupéré (distributed only in Canada, France and Taiwan).
She reached the top 10 of the American Bilboard twice with Mystere and Kà, composed by her husband and Grammy nominated composer René Dupéré, the main composer of the Cirque Du Soleil since its creation.
The Montreal born vocalist started music as a classical singer, but her vocal coach at the time confessed "You have such a unique voice and personality that you'll never make it in classical music, you should reach for the pop star system". Soon after, Elise was offered her first gig: lead singer with the Cirque Du Soleil.
In 2005, Elise Velle performed live with Youssou'n'Dour at the Montreal Jazz Festival, in front of an audience of 200,000 people.
They improvised together for the great one time event "Midnight Sun".
