Bio

Sydney songstress Elana Stone returns in 2013 armed with hindsight and big hooks. Her single ‘Sleep Doesn't Come’, produced by Jack Britten, articulates this. This release is an outpouring of soul channelled through a collection of Casio keyboards and vintage synths. Its stark and laid bare for investigation. It’s a tipping of the hat to days and eras been but firmly grounded in our electronic reality.

Elana's genre shape-shifting has led to collaborations with the likes of Passenger, Donny Benet, Urthboy, Hermitude, Tripod, Josh Pyke and Ngaiire among many others. Her unique and enchanting live performances have served to make her one of Australia's most sought after vocalists. Since her previous band The Rescue Ships parted ways Elana has spent the better part of the last two years touring with her four-part lady folk band All Our Exes Live in Texas to sell out crowds around Australia while continuing to write and perform as a solo artist.

Been a fan since back in highschool days. Oh the feels! Love the combination of melodic sweetness and grit to this. And those harmonies!
