Elise Trouw - Awake (Music Videos)

The Indies is proud to present, Elise Trouw, a inspired emerging 18 year old drummer who has a lovely voice, with additional skills as an arranger, one girl band as a looper, multi-instrumentalist and technical/gear geek who proudly to offers up lists of what electronics and gear she used to make her recordings.

Nonchalant or laid back best describes her style. Her music is never rushed and maintains a certain stillness to it, such as in her most recent viral music video of a mashup of a FooFighters song titled Everlong meets Bobby Caldwell's song titled What You Won't Do, (listen/view here at TheQuietStorm.Com). That smooth groove mashup recording she made may just be what landed her debut network television appearance and two song performance on ABC-TV's Jimmy Kimmel Live on January 30th, 2018.

Outside of the viral cover song mashup referenced above, she is a very good original songwriter who musters up talented people to help her make well done audio recordings, music videos and filmed live performances.

The two videos featured below are different versions of the same song titled Awake. Awake is track #10 on her independent debut album titled Unraveling.

It is a tossup between which version is The-Indies favorite, so a flip of a quarter picked the minimalist piano/voice version first and the studio version of Awake and it's conceptual music video next. Enjoy!
