Elodie Rêverie embarked on a journey long ago. A journey that began in early childhood, with her fingers poised over piano keys and continues today, as she writes, performs, and produces her music with a fierce independence.
This self-reliant nature is born of a confidence gained the hard way. Gained via hours at the piano as a child in Brooklyn, and as a history major in college. Gained over months of primitive living in the Nevada desert. Gained from interning for a blues legend in Nashville. Gained from her time recording at the famed 4th Street Recording Studio in sunny Southern California. Gained with every instant she’s ever stepped up on a stage.
Elodie (rhymes with Melody) is bound by close family ties and these bonds are a huge part of her artist DNA. As the granddaughter of an important aviator, Elodie embraces every last facet of her heritage including the lore around her Scottish ancestry which has called her back to Scotland to explore castles, study songwriting, and channel lessons from both into the creation of her single “Skeleton Castle.”
Intimately personal songwriting is not new to Rêverie which is why her lyrics and sultry vocals carry so much emotion. Songs like “Fire In The Desert” and “Gold Rush” come straight from her struggles and triumphs. Using a bow staff she forged fire from nothing and after completing her college degree, Elodie understood both the literal and metaphorical gold rush that motivated her California recording career.
Hammering beats drive much of her music with softer melodies bringing out the nuances in her voice which has been described as ethereal and dreamlike. Apt descriptions given rêverie is French for dream. The word is also the title of a classic composition by Claude Debussy which has always spoken to Elodie’s musical soul and perhaps sparked the musical journey that Elodie Rêverie now traverses.
