Her voice is a pleasant earful of the R&B music that we’ve been missing. With her first single, Only Wanna Give It To You, she took our ear and interest, with everyone trying to figure out who she was and where she came from. Well, we know now.
Elle Varner has an extensive musical background. She was born into a musical family, with both her mother and father being in the industry. She can play the flute, piano and guitar. She attended music programs such as Wendy Raquel Robinson‘s Amazing Grace Conservatory, NYU‘s Clive Davis Department of Recorded Music Program, which only accepts 24 students a year, and Alexander Hamilton High School‘s Academy of Music’s Vocal Jazz Group.
She graduated her NYU program in 2008 and was voted “Most likely to get signed” and “Most likely to win a Grammy.”
She is well on her road to stardom, having already achieved the goal of getting signed (RCA Records, formerly under J Records, a RCA subsidiary). 2012 has been her year. She released her second single, Refill, in January 2012 and still has people waking around singing “Can I get a Reeeefiiillll?” Her debut album, Perfectly Imperfect, was released in August 2012. She has been riding the wave of success since then. She gives you emotional songs. She gives you colorful songs. She even gives you drinking songs. Her album is a good assortment of moods and feelings. It’s the type of R&B that we would expect from the golden era. Oh, and not to mention she is gorgeous, with her natural locks of hair and seemingly flawless skin. Elle Varner will be a force to be reckoned with in the coming years.
Most likely to get signed… accomplished.
Do we see a Grammy in your future, Ms. Varner? aEM sure hopes so.
