Ellene Masri was born and raised in the South of France. She now lives between her adoptive country (the United States) and France.
It is rare when an artist comes on the scene with a unique sound, vision, voice and presence. French-born singer-songwriter Ellene Masri is all of that and more. Her sound combines many international cultural influences , Latin rhythms, with European, Mediterranean and American melodic sensibilities.One reviewer when faced with a dilemma about her asked: ” Is her voice velvet, satin or silk?"It's all three, with soulful being the common denominator.
Above all, she is not one of these prefabricated, producer created artist. She is firmly in control of her sound and direction.
Her self-produced debut album, “Music” shows off her skills as a composer, arranger and musician, playing the guitar, keyboards and programming sounds on the disc.
Her sensuously smooth vocal delivery is the icing on the cake and her mastery of the recording studio is clear in her beautifully layered background vocals.
She is one of those artists who has to be seen live to completely appreciate her stunning appeal. Audiences across the globe are in for a wonderful treat when her soon to commence tour hits their town!
