Today, “dreamy and velvety” (Billboard), neo-soul vocalist Elise LeGrow whose expertise lies in marrying retro nostalgia and modern R&B, releases her second LP and first collection of original music, Grateful, via Awesome Music/BMG. The album follows singles “Better Side,” “Feel Alright” and “Evan,” and highlights Elise’s self-discovery as she reflects on grief and human connection. It also follows her successful foray into the EDM space with her 2020 collaboration with Vintage Culture, “It Is What It Is,” which has earned over 13 million streams on Spotify alone.
Grateful was produced by GRAMMY-winning Theron “Neff-U” Feemster and Brian “Sweetwesty” West, in addition to Thomas “Tawgs” Salter, Nathan Ferraro, Jamaal “Jhyve” Bowry, David Mohaci, and Angelo Petraglia and marks Elise’s first original release, as her debut LP Playing Chess consists of “fascinating” (Relix) covers of tracks by legendary artists, ranging from Chuck Berry to Etta James.
LeGrow’s 2018 debut album Playing Chess was described as “groovin, infectious, and electrifying” (HuffPost), amassing fans such as Action Bronson and Jools Holland, as well as garnering recognition from Billboard, Okayplayer, Salon, Relix, and MOJO.
