Elle Chante | On Record | In Conversation
Broadcaster Satnam Rana and Journalist Adrian Goldberg present twenty-two conversations with Birmingham musicians, promoters, managers, venue owners and entrepreneurs who have all contributed to local, national, and international music culture. Join us and our special guests for conversations about their lives in music, their connections to the city, and how Birmingham has inspired or influenced them, personally and musically.
Selected dates also feature free live performances from the artists appearing On Record. The first of its kind, On Record is a multi-artist, multi-genre concept album forming a sonic love letter to the city of Birmingham. Produced as part of the Birmingham 2022 Festival, the eleven-track album will be available on a limited vinyl release and across all streaming platforms.
Elle Chante is a musical self-expressionist based in Birmingham, interested in exploring human emotions and experiences through the arts. Described as 'ethereal' 'angelic' and 'enchanting' Elle’s performances use looping, guitar and emotive song writing and vocals to invite the audience to share in the world that she lives in. In this episode Adrian Goldberg talks to Elle about growing up in Birmingham, her musical and artistic influences and invisible illness.
Elle's most recent events 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. Elle is a recipient of the Jerwood Bursary and her genre bending, ambient, electronic, orchestral sound, has gained recognition from labels such as Pilot Records and Liquicity.
