Cafe Pyrus Show with Danielle Robert and Sarah Pearson

There is something really special about playing a show featuring all women. I was inspired by Danielle and Sarah’s passion for life and the love that flowed through their songs. They were both incredible on the piano! I say the three of us get keytars and take this show on the road! Spice Girls covers anyone? ;)
I’d like to thank everyone for coming out on Thursday and smiling back at me from your seats! Y’all are the best and I am so grateful.

Lots of love, 
Elsa Jayne

Eric, our recording engineer and I! He’s the best and it was super nice to have him at the show :)

Studio Day 5

This past session should be called The Attack of The Apple Cider Vinegar…
And here’s WHY.
I’ve come to appreciate the many natural remedies that our recording engineer, Eric has up his sleeves. ie) lemon and cayenne pepper to ward off oncoming sicknesses, oil of oregano under the tongue, and… apple cider vinegar for congestion. So when Graeme and Eric heard a bit of phlegm (gross word) pop up in my vocal track, Eric ran to the kitchen and brought me back this huge glass of ACV/water. 

"This will help!"   HE SAID.
"The after taste is like sweet apple juice!"   …HE SAID.  

I was such a hero and downed that drink like nobody’s business. 
I may have even let out a very exquisite belch afterwards.
Did it help with congestion? Yes. Did my stomach feel like a really bad rave was happening inside and did Eric have to get me some bread to counteract the ACV? YES! ;)

But all in all, I was a happy camper. With bread in my belly I sang the remaining harmonies and it was another great recording session.
So when the EP comes out, listen to “Flowers” and you just might hear that “interesting texture” in the harmonies. 
It really is a special song and I know you guys will love it!

Happy Easter!
Lots of love, Elsa Jayne

Photo shoot with Every Little Wonder Photography

Our trip to Windsor, ON was as perfect as can be. For starters, it’s a lot warmer then Kitchener/Waterloo and the grass is already nice and green. Shooting in the sunshine I wasn’t even cold in my romper! Yes, romper. 

Sarah from Every Little Wonder, is a dear friend and an amazing talent. She understands my style and has an incredible eye for detail. I was lucky enough to have her take my engagement/wedding photos, so there is a lovely history there.
Here are a few behind the scene shots taken by Graeme! Notice Sarah’s bench acrobatics? Stay tuned for more exciting album news!

Happy Easter! Lots of love,
Elsa Jayne
