Illumina

Elaine Lachica is exceptionally talented. She was a child prodigy who went on to study at the Peabody Conservatory of Music and at the American Academy of Dramatic Arts in Los Angeles. All the while, she listened to classical, jazz, musicals and British and American pop music, including Bach, Cassandra Wilson, the Cocteau Twins, Nick Drake, Radio head, and Tori Amos. Elaine’s life experience allows her to create some fantastic music, like her debut release 9 and her latest album Apolune.

Apolune is multi-layered and instrumental. Elaine’s ethereal voice caresses and seduces, floating upon a soft ocean of synthesized sounds and loops and string/keyboard atmospherics. She has a talent for crafted songs that display the duality of being grounded and present, yet always on the verge of floating into abstraction with no center to hold. Listeners who love dreamy and bewitching vocals with loads of musical surprises should get a rush from this CD.

Elaine gets a lot of positive press and radio airplay. She also performs at colleges and clubs throughout the east coast like The Vault in Baltimore, CB's 313 Gallery, The Sidewalk Café, Acme Underground, Freddy's and Vibe in NYC. She plays live with drummer Ryan Cavan and bassist Rich Chapple, who also recorded drums and bass for Apolune. Catch her next live show if you can.
