I AM LUCKY ENOUGH TO SAY THAT MY JOURNEY TO GET HERE TODAY HAS BEEN A WINDING PATH OF ADVENTURE, CHANCE MEETS AND SOME TOTALLY AWESOME PEOPLE!
A couple of years down the line and working with two friends in a show, we discovered a love for close part harmony. It was not long before The Polka Dots was born (2009) and from the popularity of the vintage swing & rockabilly scene, I produced The Estrellas and Disco Divas Soul/Motown & Disco female vocal acts also.In the last 10 years of gigging with our own home-grown acts, we have met some truly amazing bands and entertainers. With a shared passion for the stage, music and performing, it has been an honour to be able to join forces with these people, grow our portfolio of trusted entertainment acts and offer our clients exceptional talent in any genre! And the best bit is… we are ALWAYS meeting new people, and new acts, enabling us to continue building our offering!
It probably sounds corny, but more than a decade ago I never would have dreamed of living the life I do now, working with people I want to work with, and in an industry that fills me up from the inside! Continually crossing paths with amazing acts, coming across new bands, working in new places, with new people – and I am passionate about sharing that enthusiasm in EVERY event that we are associated… THAT is what ELLE Entertainment is about!
I COMBINED MY LOVE OF THE CREATIVE WORLD WITH MY ADMIN SKILLS (WHO DOESN’T LOVE A GOOD SPREADSHEET!?) AND JOINED ELLE ENTERTAINMENT IN 2017.
Realising that engaging with people and creating events to remember is what motivates me, I love working for ELLE Entertainment, where I’m in charge of sourcing new acts and managing their online profiles.
I began my career as a youth worker, working with children and young people, whilst alongside this, I could also be found on the musical theatre stage. After eight years, I decided to take the plunge into the world of performing full time! As an actor and singer myself, I know the world of entertainment well, which is a great asset when it comes to my role as Head of Act Management at the company. As well as managing the acts I am also a member of a few of them! I sing with The Polka Dots, The Estrellas and The Disco Divas as well as starting my own solo jazz act ‘Eliza Sings’ (*ahem* the perfect accompaniment to a drinks reception or wedding ceremony!).
With all these acts, I have been fortunate enough to gig in some incredible places for some inspirational people. It really is the best job in the world! Outside of ELLE Entertainment I’m putting my admin skills (and spreadsheets) to further use by organising my upcoming wedding. Oh and I’m partial to a gin and tonic, enjoy a good rom-com and make a banging cup of tea!
