Originally from Vermont, Elle Carpenter has been singing as long as she’s been walking. She spent significant childhood years touring around the country with four siblings and her mother, performing and doing workshops at folk festivals, schools and other events.
At age 6 she recorded her first record, singing back-up as one of the "Wee-bops" of Central Vermont. Soon afterwards she recorded another album with a folk group called the Fiddleheads. From age 10 to 16 Elle toured with world/folk music group Village Harmony, traveling around the USA, UK, Canada, Denmark and Germany.
In 2009 (after recording and releasing her first solo album “The Best”) she was flown to Ho Chi Minh City,Vietnam to perform at the White Palace Convention Center for a month.
Elle has been touring the USA since 2010, having released two additional pop-rock albums:“With Open Hands” (November 2011) and “Simple Girl” (January 2014).
Elle’s latest album,“Life Just Happens to You” was released on May 22, 2015. This new album - an acoustic folk/rock/country compilation - is a true reflection of the diversity she has experienced in her life as a musician, and is Elle’s first step into the world of Americana.
Elle recently signed with Travianna Records of Willis,VA. She resides in Durango, CO when she’s not on the road and enjoys training aerial arts in her free time.
"Elle's curves and fashion awareness has never been lacking. But what's more important is she's pulled off some country girl swag on Life Just Happens To You. She gives us just enough Nashville / Singer-songwriter sound to show she's serious about showing off her country girl side, but she doesn't force it."
-Digital Earbuds Magazine
"Musically, ["Life Just Happens to You"] is robust with rich melodies, dynamic interludes and exceptional singing. There isn’t much to complain about in this department as long as you don’t mind a good pop song. I would embrace pop music more if someone like Carpenter were on mainstream radio."
-Indie Music Reviews USA
"The self-made Songstress."
-Jackson Free Press, MS USA
"Singing folk [is] like riding a bike for Elle Carpenter."
-The Joplin Globe, MO USA
"Elle Carpenter’s music career is an exercise in diversity.. "Life Just Happens to You" [is] a collection of polished Americana and pop in the vein of Mary Chapin Carpenter, an ear-friendly gateway into Americana."
-The Durango Herald, CO USA
"Your ability to weave pop, rock, folk, even some roots-sound is a
testament to your talents.”
-Jango Airplay, USA
"Elle Carpenter reminds us of a high-pitched male vocalist in a pop-punk
band -- but in a good way. Carpenter's approach to her lyrics and switching
up her tone makes it clear none of the songs are by accident."
-Las Vegas Citylife, NV USA
