My name is Elsa. Va, which means “powerful woman” in English, is my middle name, given to me as a result of my parents working on a Hmong refugee camp at the time I was born.
I have always loved music. I had a very rustic childhood in rural MN and aside from lip-syncing to Michael Jackson songs in the mirror, most of it was spent running around the woods and jumping in the crick.

I did a lot of singing and musical theater and began writing my own songs and performing solo in high school. I kept this up throughout college, at which point I picked up the guitar. I moved to the east coast for a few years and then to the west coast, working full time but still performing on the side. Getting Garage band a couple of years ago opened the door to let me record my own music! I have really enjoyed it, but am hopeful that soon I will be able to record a full length studio album.

I’m constantly getting little song ideas in my head. Little blurbs here, little blurbs there, and I spend hours- sometimes days- piecing them together and recording. It feels very personal. Every time I post a new song, I feel like I have let a little extension of myself out into the world. That you have taken the time to listen to them means the world to me.
