ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Loretta and Elli are a Mother/Daughter duo who have been full-filling a dream and performing in the Ohio Valley since 2007. They are a “fan-favorite” for their harmony and interaction with the crowd and have appeared at numerous venues large and small. “Tootsie's” on Broadway in Nashville, “Jamboree in the Hills”, Easter Seals Telethon, the Upper Ohio Valley Italian Festival, the Wheeling Vintage Raceboat Regatta, local Fesitvals, National Anthems for various events, YWCA functions like “Battle of the Bands” and Heartfelt Expressions, just to name a few.

They are very proud to present their first CD, “Country Can Be Funky” with all original creations. Their work is “life-based” with airy vocals and geared towards the Country/Pop Genre. This album was started in January 2009 and has involved not only many long hours and hard word, but has created much laughter, friendships, smiles, and many happy tears! It brought total strangers together who now call each other “friend”! Their set list also includes cover songs by greats like Patsy Cline, Faith Hill, Bonnie Raitt, Sara Evans, & Miranda Lambert to name a few.

Loretta says.....“Welcome to my dream! The one thing that truly makes me happy is “singing”...always has, always will! God has a plan for each of us, and I'm grateful to him that mine is on this musical path. When the song writing started to come to me, I couldn't believe that feelings could be put into words and beautiful music. Who knew I was planting seeds with my Elli to bring this album to life and to you! If you're reading this, it means I've touched your life and I hope my music inspires you to believe in yourself to fulfill your dreams...at any age...and stay “in tune” with God's plan for you. May it be as magical as mine!”

Elli shares..."Life's hard, being a teenager is harder, but this CD is proof any dream is achievable and any obstacle can be overcome. Losing my dad to a heart attack made me realize that life changes suddenly. It's too short to let embarrassment and peer pressure control actions and emotions. Had I let the demons take over, I would've missed out on this exciting journey of building a wonderful Mother/Daughter bond. I'm so thankful for all we've achieved and can't wait to do so much more!!"

Here's their "Full Bio" for your reading pleasure.....They want you to get to know them and love them.... Country in a Brand New Way!

 Loretta was a country music girl from the very beginning! She was born and raised in Ford City, a small farming community in western Pennsylvania. Her Mother played guitar, sang in the church choir, and appeared with her friends in bands around the area. Her father, who went to join the Lord when Loretta was just a little girl, played banjo and harmonica. All of their love for music was passed on to Loretta and her four sisters who would often sing together for friends, at picnics, and simply for their own entertainment.

Her school days kept her busy singing in the Chorus and in her Church Choir, and she also played the clarinet and participated in the Drill Team in her High School Marching Band. While she set aside her musical interests to raise her three children in Wheeling, WV, it didn’t take long to rekindle Loretta’s passion for singing once she discovered that her daughter Elli was doing a pretty fair job of singing at the tender young age of six.

 As it goes, when a singing mom has a singing little girl, mom teaches her baby about technique, harmony and other fine qualities of the art. As Elli grew so did her voice and her love for the inherent abilities that she was so blessed with; singing and song-writing, just like her mom.

 Throughout middle school and high school, Elli worked continually to refine her skills. She quickly became the local favorite for singing The National Anthem at sporting events and Patriotic Assemblies. She also won the Queen of Queens pageant while performing her song “My Everything”. Elli and Loretta would sing away countless hours at home, and at literally any function they could find. From retirement homes, flea markets, and charities, to fairs, festivals, and even Jamboree in the Hills these ladies have delighted crowds big and small. They have appeared with many of their friends around the Ohio Valley area and along side some of the greatest stars in the country music industry. Their talent and uncompromising spirit have earned them passage into an elite family of some of the finest entertainers in the business.

 Loretta and Elli are now setting out to showcase to the world their astounding collection of original songs through their elegance, sophistication, and down-right good music. Their style, of compelling lyrics and airy vocals, is flavored with a bit of blues and pop on a solid bed of good old American Country Music. They’ve teamed up with some of the most talented musicians and producers to create an amazing compilation of songs that reach across generations and embody the very lives of their listeners.

 Those who have experienced the genuine heartfelt performance of Loretta & Elli will agree that these ladies are destined to embolden the Country Music World with a new indelible brand, marking the arrival of yet another distinguished name to the family of country music artists.

Hugs and Kisses...Loretta and Elli : )
