Elise Letourneau

Elise Letourneau’s compositional style blurs the lines between classical, jazz, and popular music. Her mastery of various genres and instruments informs her innovative work, with an unflinching attention to melodic beauty. Her deep sensitivity to lyrical poetry, and to the voice itself, imbues her music with a sense of singability and intuitiveness. She writes and chooses texts that embody groundedness and goodwill, and sets them in motion through her music. Her instrumental music also reflects this lyrical sense.
