elishéva was born in Paris, France, grew up in Tahiti, French Polynesia before moving to Los Angeles, California in 2008. She started singing as a freshman vocalist in her high school choir. It wasn’t until her senior year of high school that she started voice lessons that would later introduce her to jazz. elishéva started finding her own sound by exploring the jazz and pop genres, and by listening to more music than she could handle. Chasing the thrill of a career in the music industry, she was inspired to pursue performance after high school.
