Think back to when you were 8-years old. What were you doing? As a girl you were probably brushing the hair of your Barbie dolls and as a boy you were probably playing catch with some of your neighbors. Well, not Elle Winter. At 8-years old, this singer-song writer was in and out of recording studios with a number of multi-platinum GRAMMY nominated producers and musical directors. And now, at a mere 15-years old, Elle is taking over the pop-scene one record at a time.
Growing up in New York City, Elle has always been surrounded by the culture that is art. Predominantly known for their street performers and broad-way shows, New York City is home to many of those pursing and/or destined for the spot light; And Elle is no different. At the tender age of three, it was beyond evident to Elle’s parents that she was made to be a star when they recognized her not only impersonating a rock-star, but also having the vocals to match. Growing up listening to artists’ such as Avril Lavigne, pop princess Britney Spears and even Shirley Temple, Elle was intrigued with all that music was composed of and would perform for family and friends. Little did they know, it was an insight into the future that is Elle Winter.
Like any young girl her age, Elle did realize the rise to her destiny wasn’t going to be easy. She had to work hard, believe and stay motivated. Though struggling to discover her sound and making sure she didn’t lose herself in the process, Elle learned to trust herself as an artist and realized no one knew her better than she knew herself. Though she knew it was easy to be influenced by her superstar surroundings, Elle followed her heart and poured it all out in her music. Paving a way that allowed her to manifest, gain recognition and gain an opportunity to deliver her story to those who believed in her and those who were growing to love her.
In 2012, Elle took her confident and upbeat personality, wrapped it with her talent and took on the offering from Disney’s “Next Big Thing 5” which led her to conquer a 10-city co-headlining tour; a prelude to what was to come for the singer. It wasn’t too long after in October of 2012 that Elle released “Day Away” via Walt Disney Records, which not only dominated Radio Disney’s Top 30 countdown for three consecutive months, but is also still in heavy rotation today. Joining Elle’s debut hit is her second single, “Want It All” which was released in 2013 via Radio Disney.
Now in 2014 Elle is keeping the momentum going as an artist under Mrok Music Group. Hard at work on her new album and visuals to pair, Elle continues to collaborate with some of music’s most respected producers, song-writers and video production groups. Elle’s latest video for her upcoming single, “No Words” was directed by Quincy and his FourXample Production team, and feature’s Christian Combs, son to music and media mogul, Diddy. Through her music, Elle hopes to continue to encourage fans to believe in themselves, embrace life and be happy.
Elle Winter’s new video “No Words” will be dropping soon! The song pays homage to the old adage that “actions speak louder than words” whether it be adoration for your partner, family friend or life itself that can’t be explained in words but better felt through the genuine emotions themselves. The song personifies Elle’s positive personality. See more exclusive photos from the shoot here.
