Husband and wife duo Elle Deva offers a delightful original sound, comprising of both original material and covers (jazz, soul, pop, indie), taking the latest hits and some of the greatest hits of our time and making it their own. With a repertoire including hits and favourites from artists like Adele, Bruno Mars, Beyonce, Rihanna, all the way back to Tina Turner, Maroon5, Bill Witers, Tracy Chapman, and dozens more; this talented duo is the perfect addition to any event!
Elle Deva’s story started in 2008 when Italian composer / guitarist / producer Michele met singer/songwriter Lauren in South Africa. The two have been working together ever since, taking inspiration from their diverse musical backgrounds. Their cultural diversity enhanes their creative process and is evident in their uniquely layered sound, which appeals to a wide audience.
The duo’s first single “Rain Roses” was released under Filter Label in 2014. It was initially a project aimed at TV and Film placements, but the duo decided to share it while working on their next single. “The Chase” from the single “Rain Roses” has been licensed by a few music supervisors for Film and TV placements.
In 2015 the pair recorded some of their work in London, collaborating with producers and session musicians who would help them reach a new market with their catchy acoustic songs. The result was the release in March 2016 of “Familiar Ground”, an EP which has been promoted all over the UK, on blogs, music websites and various international radio stations.
The duo recently released their third single “Reach”. An Urban/Pop track, which will be featured on their up and coming EP. They also produce, write and compose for other artists from the UK to Australia.
