Elle Chante

Elle Chante is a musical self-expressionist interested in exploring human emotions and experiences through the arts.

Her performances use looping, guitar and emotive songwriting to invite the audience to share in the world that she lives in. Her most recent events have been supported by the likes of Arts Council England, Warwick Arts Centre and Beatfreeks Fuel Funding. They include co-creating and performing ‘Seasick’ (an interdisciplinary piece of performance art about coming to terms with chronic illness) and creating ‘Invisible’ – an event to give artists with invisible illnesses a platform to perform and discuss their experiences. She has also gained recognition from labels such as Pilot Records and Liquicity.

Elle now aims to use the Jerwood Bursary to reflect on her experience so far and explore the potential for her authentic sound and music. This will be done by collaborating with producers, gaining advice and spending time exploring production and sound techniques.
