Elle Casazza is many things, but she isn’t “retro.” Sure her music evokes a bygone era, when jazz and soul reigned supreme; granted, her voice commands attention in a way few contemporary singers can claim. But “retro” implies she’s cashing in on a trend, and one listen to her new album “Proof” proves that Elle Casazza is nothing if not authentic.
Since 2011 Elle has performed all over Chicago, either solo or with her five piece band. In 2013 she released her first EP “For Your Pleasure.” which has played on numerous radio stations. In 2015 she released three singles: Witness, Rainy Days and Soft & Low. With her latest full album release “Proof,” Elle hopes to “bring authenticity by bringing the live band back to pop music.”
Barelyon is what happens when the Big Apple meets the Motor City. A champion and an underdog rolled into one. A ton of hustle and zero ounces of quit. Stylistically, raw, soulful, pop rock with influences from Amy Winehouse, Frank Sinatra, The White Stripes, John Mayer, and other artists known for embracing the history of music while molding it into something new. Originally from NYC and Detroit respectively, Barelyon is a collaboration between Leona CW and Brion RGB (Riborn) –and often other groovy music people– creating music with a focus on duets and harmonies. Almost every song is an interaction between singers. There is no lead. Barelyon is a duo. Barelyon is a trio. Barelyon is a band. Barelyon is.
