Australian born, half Japanese Elesia Iimura, would be best described as a soulful blend of Hip Hop and R&B. Inspired by a rich diversity of renowned artists, from Lauren Hill to Mariah Carey, Alicia Keys, Mary J Blidge, Faith Evans and Aaliyah, Elesia’s musical style is set to raise standards in the industry.
From the age of 5, Elesia trained herself vocally. As her talent progressed, so did her interest in song writing, then from the age of 21 she began to play with musical composition. The talent developed from this mixture of aspects has created a highly qualified foundation for super stardom.
As a much loved solo artist, professional third party experience has always been an essential part of this journey. Brisbane producers, sound engineers, and vocal trainers of international standard have assisted Elesia in fine tuning her existing talent.
Currently a leading vocalist of the nationally renowned Million Dollar Babes (www.milliondollarbabes.com.au), this Brisbane based group of entertainers has placed Elesia in the limelight for the past year. Such experience has helped her gain immense confidence necessary for public appearance.
On a promising road to the completion of her album, Elesia’s debut will definitely ensure a certain future. She has recently been given the once in a lifetime opportunity to perform live and solo on behalf of the one and only R&B group sensation “Boyz II Men”. Keep tabs of her Myspace page, as it will be updated regularly with new tracks, photos, and up and coming events and shows.
