Learn a little more about Elisha and Embrace below:
Growing up along the south coast, Elisha's music was undoubtedly influenced by nature and her surroundings as well as a love of traditional folk and spiritual music. At 16, Elisha self-released an EP titled Words are Not Enough, before leaving her sea-side hometown for music college in the heart of the Midlands.
The years that followed saw Elisha become the lead singer of Eden Canvas, a rock/pop band that went on to win a UK battle of the bands competition and perform at Musikmesse festival in Frankfurt, Germany. The band came to an end a couple of years later and Elisha took the opportunity to gain experience collaborating with other songwriters and producers. In 2013, she featured on ‘Clandestine’ - a track composed for film trailers and released as part of the album Goddess by Twisted Jukebox.
Enrolling at University in 2014, Elisha took a break from performing while she focused on her studies, worked, and got married - though she continued songwriting behind the scenes, drawing upon a whole new host of experiences and influences.
Now, with a plethora of new material and a successful Kickstarter campaign under her belt, Elisha is again setting out to perform, record and release her own music. Her solo music has a blend of rich vocal harmonies, acoustic influences, and an urban electronic edge.
The aim of Embrace is to:
Reach women in hard to reach places
Support the right of all women to be accepted for who they are and encouraged in their personal pursuit of freedom, purpose and fulfilment in life
Offer practical, emotional and spiritual support and befriend women as they journey forward.
We do this by:
Providing services that will assist women in their intellectual, physical, emotional and spiritual restoration and development
