“Elea Calvet taps into music’s emotive foundations with elements of Tom Waits & Patti Smith reminiscent in her lyrical style. Born in Canada & raised in India, Elea has since settled in UK and is set on becoming one of the most prolific alternative artists on the independent scene today.” - Music News

“Latest single Trigger builds on the rich musicality of her debut, delivering a heartfelt brand of rock that harbours levels of sass and swagger rarely seen in this day and age. Earmarking her not just as a bright young talent, but as an act that feels equal parts timely and timeless." - Louderthanwar

"She is an eclectic artist, and certainly one who does not hold back." - The Line Of Best Fit

“As a child Elea found refuge in poetry and creative writing, influenced by the written work of Bukowski, Leonard Cohen and Bob Dylan. Eleas transition into music stemmed from learning the Drawmwin and then Yangqin, in an attempt to imitate the music from her personal CD collection. Turning her attention towards guitar, Elea’s music developed its own distinctive roar, reflecting the primal echoes of her surrounding wildernesses. Fierce and captivating, her atmospheric style draws you into a private world and paints a picture through Eleas own unique angle. Vulnerable yet cynical, Elea Calvet is above all memorable.” VENTS Magazine
