'Alleluia 2001' is a blend of original compositions and arrangements of old favorites done with a fresh new approach, a demonstration of amazing vocal and instrumental agility, with Elyse performing her own lyrics, countermelodies, harmonies and guitar accompaniment. Ensembled with other accomplished instrumentalists, this diva mesmerizes with lyrical improvisations and tonal synchronicity. From jazz opera to simple folk ballads to sensual love songs, Elyse has a voice and musical skills suited to many genres, and yet in a class all her own--a coloratura with popular sensibilities, and a touch of deep heart in her singer soul and sound magnifique. Elyse has been singing since age eleven and has performed for thousands of audiences in the Northeast. Her classical training with conservatory faculty is evident, and she brings to the music world her own arrangements in a new sound that is sometimes sultry, sometimes playful, and simply angelic. Many people who have purchased 'Alleluia 2001' say that they play it frequently and that Elyse's voice has a soothing and relaxing effect--that her music helps relieve stress and the tension and anxiety that often accompany stress. 'Alleluia 2001' is a perfect companion for Elyse's second album in progress-- 'Just Love,' which is scheduled for release in 2005/6. Completion of that album is in progress at Will Ackerman's Imaginary Road Studio, where Elyse has been in recording sessions with David Cullen, Grammy Award winning guitarist, and Corin Nelsen, Elyse's album project producer and Grammy Award winning engineer for Will Ackerman's Grammy Award winning album, 'Returning.'
