Elodie Reverie Combines Ethereal Voice with Powerful Lyrics

Elodie Rêverie grew up filling her pre-historic Brooklyn Brownstone with Chopin--she became known in her neighborhood as a young piano player because neighbors could hear her music at all hours, but it wasn’t until she lived in the desert that she truly began to find her voice. The LA/NY based 26 year old “tripl3” threat(lyricist, chanteuse and beatmaker) writes about dropping out of college to live in the desert for 6 months at 18, growing up as the great granddaughter of the founder of Pan American Airlines, confronting fears related to noise induced hearing loss, navigating the challenges of coming of age in a time-obsessed society, the legacy of the Gold Rush in California, and creates instrumentals that make you feel like you're traversing through time and space. Her vocals are both ethereal and penetrating and work perfectly with the fusion of genres she creates in the studio. Anything from EDM to pop to house to disco to funk, and more, is her playground. She writes her own lyrics, creates her own beats, plays her own instruments, produces and mixes her own songs – she does it all. And through it all she brings a point of view that’s surprising in its freshness. Born into a quintessential high status American family, whose forefather was an Pan American’s founder Juan Trippe, Elodie says she always felt like she lived a different life than most other girls and felt a keen sense of responsibility to uphold the family name. 
And because of Trippe’s example, many men in the family were put on a pedestal. The combination of growing up in a privileged way, while longing for an escape became something that was overwhelming more often than not. In college, she made a documentary tracing her journey of writing her first song because she thought it would be an entertaining story arc. Though she'd played piano since the age of 5, she’d never written an original song.
A few months earlier she spent time in the desert as a kind of soul searching journey. As she dug into the songwriting moments, she found herself tapping into experiences in the desert and pulling from all the emotions she’d felt over the years that she couldn’t previously articulate. Out of that she was able to create something truly original and says of  the experience: "I learned to make fire out there(bow drilling) and it was the catalyst for the realization that there were other ways to release the tension within me I'd been chasing in the wrong ways; for me it was creative expression." She preformed at a Jazz Foundation of America event headlined by Macy Gray and Wyclef Jean shortly after pursuing singing in a serious way, but took a break for four years after a Karaoke performance gone wrong on a date and worked in the documentary world.

"I'm 26 now, and its just the right time for me to emerge as an artist--I couldn't make the kind of music I do now had I started earlier and I'm focused and I know myself better and I've shed a lot of my insecurities." 

Her most recent single is a song called “Gold Rush,” which she said was inspired by the Gold Rush in California in the mid-1800s. That “gold fever” serves as a metaphor for anyone who has uprooted their life to chase a dream. “People who chase after something without any guarantee of success...” she said. “Slim chances... That’s what the song is about. In contemporary LA, there’s a bit of that going on in terms of people chasing careers in entertainment. But the song is about more than just that. I use wordplay to talk about the gold buried inside all of us. It’s about finding that metaphorical gold.” Although she is keeping us in the dark about her plans for future releases of music she has been working on with Chase Mcelhaney at 4th Street Recording, the glimpses of what we've heard shine.
She was featured in recently released Lifoti's June 2019 influencer issue, you can check it from below link's for your country:
