Lena Elizabeth

Meet the band


Lena Elizabeth is a singer/songwriter and Minneapolis native writing songs influenced by folk music with a voice rooted in the blues. The youngest in a household of musicians, she blends old and new to create a pop sound that is approachable across generations.

Lena Elizabeth's debut EP 'The Line' marries simplicity of tone with the stories of her reality. Leading with subdued yet tactile vocal lines, her words take a path between playful and bluesy tones. Written and composed with the baritone ukulele, she offers a strong soulful voice with elements of folk storytelling. Her three man band creates the foundation for her stories. Jeff Krause, on Electric Guitar, leads with that subtly driven clean tone; crafting lines that converse with the lyrics and laying understated rhythmic textures. Taylor Donskey provides the low end with the emblematic tone of the Upright Bass. On Drums and Percussion, Daniel Staddon brings it all together.  Solid tones and sly lyric moments fill out each tune, providing the groove so that you might rest in it.
