I was lucky enough to get into the Casbah for the Elise Trouw concert and lucky enough that my friend Chris and I got right up front. Elise Trouw is famous for a couple of things...playing drums, bass and guitar into loops then singing over the music she makes...and for having an incredible voice.
If I just watched Elise sing and do nothing else, I would have been very impressed...but adding in all her talents, playing, songwriting, mashup arrangements and more...Elise Trouw is quite simply the most talented 18 year old artist I have ever seen...and I've been looking for and playing new young talent on the radio for over 30 years....YES...I am THAT impressed.
Check out the pics from the show below...and her performance video on youtube of one of her recent appearance on Jimmy Kimmel.
I hope to have her on my radio show when her tour brings her back home to San Diego....stay tuned..
