Élan Noelle is an exceptional singer, songwriter and producer who has created a sound that is all her own.
Some of her major musical influences come from an eclectic list of artists such as, Earth Wind and Fire, Pat Metheny, Chaka Khan, Michael Jackson, Stevie Wonder, Jamiroquai, Kaskade and Teena Marie.
As a San Francisco CA native, Élan moved to Washington, D.C where she cultivated her musical talents. At the tender age of five, Élan Noelle knew that she wanted to perform. Singing around the house and into any tape recorder she could find was the norm. Shortly after high school Élan started getting into her musical craft. She would join other singing groups and perform in front of small audiences to get her feet wet. But, it wasn't until Élan received a Yamaha Keyboard from her dear mother, when her musical hobby transcended into a serious pursuit. She taught herself how to play the piano and then later purchased a sequencer and began creating music relentlessly. "I would literally lock myself in a room and just create tracks. I was obsessed with it and I still am."
This may be Élan Noelle's debut as a recording artist but she is no rookie to the craft. As the lead singer of a popular agency band, performing before large crowds is the norm.
Before breaking into her own, Élan performed with her sisters in a R&B vocal trio known as Zephyra. Together, their accomplishments include, touring all over the East Coast appearing at venues such as, The Carter Baron, The Kennedy Center, opening for artists such as Brandy, Monica, Tony Rich, winning first place on the famous television show, Showtime at The Apollo and releasing an independent EP called "The Calm Before The Storm."
Recently, Élan Noelle performed live at The Howard Theatre in Washington, D.C. twice as the opening act for Lyfe Jennings.
In addition to film study in college, Élan studied musical theatre and acting. After receiving her bachelor's degree from Howard University, Élan continued her thespian studies at the Studio Theatre in Washington D.C. and completed the entire curriculum.
As an actress, Élan has appeared in several television commercials, Netflix's House of Cards, and her highlighted stage performances include a one woman show as Billy Holiday in "Lady Day," and Lady Macbeth in "Macbeth".
