The honesty in her soulful voice will stop you dead in your tracks.
Reminiscent of Eva Cassidy and Bonnie Raitt, Hart’s songwriting blends nuanced country and blues to support the sassy and often gritty messages she relates. The characters her songs create live the timeless stories we recognize in ourselves.
Elli’s charismatic and personable on-stage presence gets the audience laughing along between her songs; her banter comes from the heart and she makes an authentic and instant connection.
She now divides her time performing solo on the Canadian folk festival circuit, and appearing at club and theatre venues with her guitar-driven rock-biased band Dirty Mountain. Both styles showcase the versatility of the music she writes.
Hart’s debut album, Dirty Mountain 01 and her video, Jagged Lines have been received to great critical acclaim and demonstrate that this new Canadian artist is here to stay.
