Join us for a night of heartfelt, original live music from three local musicians with influences spanning from folk and soul to jazz and spoken word.
Ellisa Sun has been singing since the age of 9 and playing guitar since the age of 15. Ellisa continued singing as she grew older and, after moving to San Francisco, she began to explore songwriting for sketch comedy. Her sister Nicole acted as the catalyst for Ellisa’s songwriting and performing skills by putting her on the stage at a sketch comedy show with Pianofight Productions, a theater group based in San Francisco.
Ellisa aims to incorporate Jazz, Soul, and R&B into her music, drawing parallels to Amy Winehouse and Lauryn Hill. Her influences also include female singer-songwriters Feist and Regina Spektor, as well as Trip-hop artists Zero 7 and Bjork.
