ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Elyce…Bio Information

The “buzz” that will soon become a roar started earlier in 2005 on the internet for dark hair, hazel eyed for breaking teenage Christian rocker, Elyce, whose debut album "Who I Am" hasn't even been commercially released.

The Columbia, Illinois native has not only stirred the grassroots in cyberspace with her high profile MySpace presence attracting thousands of downloads from thousands of friends, but her first effort at serious recording has attracted a following in the high ranks of Nashville’s music community. The album was produced by Ainslie Grosser who has engineered and produced scores of major name contemporary Christian artists—including Rebecca St. James. Finished project in hand, Elyce is serious about building a professional career team as meetings with labels and management unfold and summer ’06 moves her closer to the official launch of music and artist.

At 18, Elyce is an alumnus of Festival Con Dios where a talent competition held at the high profile event during her freshman year of high school found her scoring high marks with the Rachel Lampa song, Blessed. The appearance encouraged her to book studio time at Jupiter Studios in nearby St. Louis to record in preparation for her presentation in Colorado at GMA’s prestigious Music In the Rockies—where she performed for the heavily stacked industry audience during her sophomore year. The professional exposure and experience of participating in Music In The Rockies convinced the beautiful young fledgling and her family that Elyce should pursue a career in music in earnest.

In preparation for the journey, Elyce performed regularly at Kingdom Treasures, a locally based Christian bookstore with a ‘Solid Rock Café’ format that gave her a tremendous experimental live performance platform for her music and vocal styling. She gradually refined her strengths and moved her emphasis from early AC sounds to a more adult definition of rock. Often compared vocally to Avril Lavigne, Elyce soon carved her own unique identity with her music, began dabbling with piano and guitar, and nurtured her own flow of self-written lyrics and music.

The result can be found within the ten tracks of Who I Am, which she finished recording with an A-team of Christian industry professionals in Franklin, Tennessee studios. With plans still in the future to move to Nashville, Elyce currently makes her home with her parents, younger brother Nathan (13), and her beloved chihuahua, Diego. Her dad, Jim, handles the day-to-day pulse on her growing career.

Elyce is fueled by a passion to reach her generation of God through her music.

“I grew up in a Christian family, surrounded by music, but it was awkward for me to witness to people—I’m somewhat shy,” notes the young singer. “Just to see God using me—seeing people’s faces when I perform and knowing God is using my music to reach them—it’s tremendously exciting to me.”

And exciting for world of Contemporary Christian Music that will soon feel the influence of Elyce.

Hey, this is nice!
Hey, this a real nice album. I wouldn't say that she sounds like Avril at all. A great mix of poppy/rock tunes with lyrics that actually say something other than the usual boy/girl themes that seems to pervade this particular sytle of music. Good to see Elyce giving her due to God for all that He has done and is doing.

Awesome Job
This is a great cd. Elyce has a wonderful voice. A great testament to our faith. And for her to be a local gal makes it even better. Hope she goes far. Can't wait to hear her stuff on local radio.

As always, wonderful
As always, Elyce's music is fantastic...ordered the CD as soon as I could, it arrived yesterday, and I haven't turned it off yet. Her love for God shines through in her songs and her voice, and it's humbling to find someone who loves Him so much and is able to express it so well.

Up-And-Comer!
Watch for Elyce making a bigger name! Power-pop with a slightly eerie alternative/heavy edge with beautifully-clear vocals. She's pure voice without the stereotypical vocal gimmicks like over-used melisma, breathiness or pouting. Elyce sings a Christian message that's refreshingly obvious. A stylistic comparison would be with Superchick with a heavier bite.

Awesome and Spiritual!!!
I could associate with all of the songs, and each one was very personal. "Revive Me", "Erase", and "Beautiful" are my three favorite ones on there because they seem to be more emotional. Overall it was absolutely AMAZING!!!

It even appeals to a 54 year old music lover!
Elyce asked me to be a myspace friend about 6 weeks ago , so I checked her out. Just today I actually sampled the whole cd. Wow is all I can say and I want it, and my son and his friends and the young adults at our church will probably want it too. Got to get this artist in S. Calif !!
