Originally staring in classical music as a Flautist, she switched to Indie and rock in her teens after finding a musical love for the guitar. Moving to New Zealand and then Australia, the guitar was always there but something was missing, four years ago she listened to the calling, she picked up a bass and hasn’t looked back.
Elle Jay has played a variety of genres as a session bassist from blues, rock, Metal, punk and folk. Her main love is blues rock which is apparent in her own songwriting.
