Elaine Lakeman

Elaine was born in Edmonton AB and began performing and singing as a child, her endless energy and need for a stage was often answered by her Mother locking her in her room which didn’t deter Lainey from attending Grant MacEwan college in the theatre arts and dance program. This new and larger venue not only gave her the opportunity to perform on stage and dance without knocking things over but it also likely contributed to saving her parents marriage.
After graduating from Grant MacEwan Elaine moved to Montreal where she became a member of the Actors Studio, this connection landed her several parts in American film as well as some local professional theatre productions, in turn, this led to a European tour with a theatre group that entertained troops overseas. Upon her return to Quebec, Elaine continued to act and perform in local theatre and film. Exhaustion and family eventually pulled her back home to Edmonton where she continued to do commercial work and soon landed a lead actress part in the film Sentimental Reasons. The smell of ocean air eventually called her to the BC coast where she continued to work as an actress and got a support part in an American/Canadian film called Honeymoon while at the same time continuing to do commercials.
Over the years Elaine developed a special relationship to the Dominican Republic where she has become a Dominicanado, this adoption has led her to perform on many occasions with local professional musicians in a number of diverse local venues and events including Television. Locally Elaine has re-dedicated herself to singing and writing and performing as a chanteuse in local venues, her recently released album When It Rains, recorded in Victoria, has received an enthusiastic response locally and internationally. Currently, her second and this time all original album has been recorded by some of the most respected musicians on the West Coast and the first song is due for release in January 7, 2019. Elaine is now rehearsing the show for the album which will be toured and presented live in the Spring of 2019.
