She’s bold. She’s dynamic. She’s sultry, elegant, funny – some even say outrageous. Elaine’s a vocal powerhouse with a stylistic range that’s as rich and varied as the names of the artists she’s performed with.
Imagine a musical career that includes singing alongside some of the greatest in the business: Mick Jagger (The Concert for NYC at The Garden), Cyndi Lauper, Cher, The Rev. Al Green, Joe Jackson (Happy Ending duet on Body & Soul, A&M Records), Dolly Parton, Sam Moore, Ronnie Spector, Darlene Love, Gov't Mule, Isaac Hayes, Buddy Guy, The Hives, Margaret Cho, and Rosie O'Donnell. She was even one of Bette Midler's Harlettes. Most recently, she’s toured with Cyndi Lauper throughout the US, Europe, Japan and Australia. Elaine has done it – and won’t stop until she can say she’s done it all. (Would you be surprised to learn that she’s also the voice of the NY Met’s theme “Meet the Mets”?)
Miz E has also appeared on Late Night with David Letterman, The Tonight Show with Conan O'Brien, Jimmy Fallon, and has lent her mellifluous* tones to Saturday Night Live, 30 Rock, Rachael Ray, Sesame Street, and films such as The First Wive's Club, Pokemon, Sex In the City and Robert Altman's Tanner On Tanner. On top of all this, her commercial career reads like a phone book!
Elaine recorded the original version of Celine Dion's Grammy Award winner It's All Coming Back To Me Now for composer/producer Jim Steinman on Virgin Records, with accompanying video directed by legendary film director Ken Russell.
When she’s got a few hours to spare, Miz E can be found in New York City performing with one of her bands The Bev Leslies, Destination Moon, or as a member of the Americana/Roots collective The Harlem Parlor Music Club.
