Multi GRAMMY® Award winning internationally acclaimed recording artist, pianist/singer/composer/arranger Eliane Elias’ distinctive musical style is one of the most unique and immediately recognizable sounds in jazz and Brazilian music. She blends her Brazilian roots and alluring voice with her virtuosic instrumental jazz, her classical and compositional skills, while she consistently displays her pianistic mastery and ability to integrate the many artistic roles she takes on.
Her 2021 album MIRROR MIRROR won the GRAMMY Award for Best Latin Jazz Album in 2022.
Mirror Mirror is an extraordinary piano duet recording of Eliane with the late legendary jazz great Chick Corea, and famed Cuban pianist Chucho Valdés. While her highly successful recordings have predominantly featured her alluring voice and piano mastery, the piano has always been her first love and working with these two incredible icons of jazz was a rare opportunity to record in a two- piano setting, something she hasn’t done in many years, since her piano duet recordings with Herbie Hancock.
With 30 albums and over 2.3 million albums sold to date, Eliane Elias has a strong presence on Spotify with over 600,000 monthly listeners and over 25 million Spotify listens of her song “Little Paradise.” She has toured 72 countries, is a four-time Gold Disc Award recipient, a three-time Best Vocal Album winner in Japan and winner of the 2018 Edison Lifetime Achievement Award in Holland to name a few accolades. Her 2019 and 2021 albums (Love Stories and Mirror Mirror) were both voted “Downbeat’s Best Album of the Year – Masterpiece” and as most of her previous releases, her recordings hit #1 on the jazz charts worldwide. Eliane has been nominated 9 times by the Grammys and Latin Grammys, receiving nominations in 5 different categories. She won two Grammys and one Latin Grammy to date.
“The Brazilian pianist and singer Eliane Elias commands the keyboard with a forceful two-handed muscularity that belies her image as a blond older sister of the mythical Girl from Ipanema.” – The New York Times
“Her vibrancy is a force unto itself. With powerful artistry, her naturally prodigious talent is even stronger as the years pass—a feat capable only by the true elites of the musical world.” – DownBeat
