Inspired by artists such as Within Temptation, Evanescence, Lacuna Coil and the dark poetry of Emilie Autumn, Elva weaves warm, rich melodies, driving beats, sweeping strings and a dash of mysticism into tales of love, loss and the self discovery that follows.
In a warm fusion of gothic rock, symphonic metal and the darker side of pop, "When I'm Sleeping" (the first release from Elva's forthcoming debut album) combines soulful lyrics and soaring melodies that continue to be warmly embraced by thousands of fans worldwide. Though based in Melbourne, Australia, Elva has a strong following across the globe, with fans hailing from America, Spain, Norway and South Africa, just to name a few.
A lifetime of soul searching and a deep fascination with metaphysics strongly flavours her musical offerings, peppering her creations with myth, magick and the deep, thrumming resonance of a hungry heart.
With spiritual undertones reminiscent of The Tea Party and Tool and a love of 19th century lyric poetry, Elva draws from the depths of the subconscious mind, translating prose into something inspiring and uniquely Elva. Each incredible offering touches the listener over and over. Each song traces the patterns of our lives and offers hope and succor.
Be inspired. Feel deeply, passionately and intensely. Live, breathe, bleed and experience each exquisite moment. Indulge the senses and feed the mind. Step beyond the norm and discover the beauty of the Heart.
