Barely 18 years old, Elisa Jo surprises both by her determination, her spontaneity but also by the maturity of her songs, melodies and her extraordinary voice.
Elisa does not bother with superfluous questions; she advances and finds her style without setting any limits. The folk, pop, soul and even hip hop jostle.
2 years ago, she began posting her songs on myspace. Within months, more than 700,000 Internet users discovered them! Short after, she found herself playing these live, and supporting artists like Heart of Pirate, Yael Naim, Zaz, June & Lula, Ron Sexmith, Alela Diane …).
Fellow French producer and musician Benjamin Biolay (Stephan Eicher, Keren Ann, Juliette Greco, Carla Bruni, etc…) heard her demos by coincidence and was immediately engrossed by her voice and personality. Elisa and Benjamin entered the studio and emerged a few days later with the debut EP "Back Around". With a handshake, Benjamin also promised to produce her first album.
