Elise Ashlyn Trouw (born April 28, 1999) is a U.S. singer, songwriter, and multi-instrumentalist. She was signed in November 2015 to a one album record deal by Pacific Records of San Diego, California.[1] As of October, 2016, she has released four singles, "X Marks the Spot", "She Talking", "Your Way", and "Burn". In September 2016, she left Pacific Records, buying out her contract, and retaining all rights to her music.[2] In February 2017 she released her first album, Unraveling.

Her influences include Radiohead, The Police, Adele, John Mayer, Steely Dan and Tower of Power.[3][4]

Early life[edit]

Born in Newport Beach, California, Trouw moved to San Diego at an early age. At six, she learned to play the piano with the intent of being able to play "My Immortal" by Evanescence. At age ten, she started drum lessons with instructor Dave Blackburn in Fallbrook, California, after playing the faux drums on the video game Rock Band.[5]

Education[edit]

Trouw attended The Bishop's School (La Jolla) from 7th to 11th grade, graduating before her senior year to pursue her music career. While attending Bishop's she was also selected to be a member of the Grammy Foundation's Grammy Camp alumni band, allowing her to perform alongside Sam Hunt at Club Nokia on February 11, 2016.[6]

Music career[edit]

On February 24, 2017, Trouw released her ten-song debut album, Unraveling, under her own label, Goober Records based in San Diego.[7] The album features Trouw on drums, vocals, guitar, piano, and bass guitar; the tracks were mixed and mastered by Alan Sanderson and Christopher Hoffee.[8] Trouw appeared as the drummer on Fox Wilde's "Soap" music video on April 4, 2017.[9] On May 7, 2017, Trouw celebrated the release of her debut album and her 18th birthday, at University of California, San Diego's Loft.[10]

In late 2017 and early 2018, she released two live looping mashup videos that achieved a considerable amount of virality on Facebook and YouTube.[11]

Affiliations[edit]

She is currently listed as an endorsed artist by Pearl Drums, Paiste Cymbals and Regaltip.[12][13][14]

Television[edit]

Elise appeared on Jimmy Kimmel Live! on February 8, 2018 after being bumped from the January 30, 2018 episode. She was the first artist to be featured on the circular lobby stage at the show where she performed a Foo Fighters / Bobby Caldwell mash up, as well as the song "Awake." [15]

Critical reception[edit]

In 2016, she was listed as one of San Diego's best new bands by SoundDiego [16] and was named 2017 "Breakout Artist" by NBC 7's SoundDiego.[17]
