Audiences who love Astrud Gilberta, Alison Krauss, Brandi Carlile, Joni Mitchell, and kd lang will love Elaine Lucia’s music. It’s a blend of the beautiful bossa nova feel of Brazilian jazz classics mixed with simple folk finger-picking guitar style of Americana songs. Add the pure, clear voice that Elaine is renowned for, songs that tell stories of love, hope, nostalgia and longing, and beautiful, haunting melodies… and you have a unique and unforgettable musical experience.
After decades as a professional jazz vocalist, Elaine has embarked on a new musical path; she now primarily performs her large repertoire of original songs she composed for guitar and voice. Joined by the same veteran jazz musicians she has performed and recorded with in the Bay Area for decades, Elaine formed a new ensemble that blends her years of jazz performing with her impressive guitar and writing skills. The result is, as Elaine likes to call it, “just beautiful music!”
