Elle Baez
Elle Baez
Erupting onto the music scene is Elle Baez, the New York City-based singer ready to take the music world by storm with her soulful pop voice and Latin-influenced tunes. As a recent graduate from New York University’s Tisch School of the Arts, Baez is dedicating her budding career in music to becoming a voice for young women everywhere. Her ethos is simple: be curvy, be sexy, and above all, be confident. Baez cites her main inspirations as Ashley Graham, Jennifer Lopez, Demi Lovato, XTINA and Adele, all beacons of success and resilience as women in the entertainment industry. As well as a champion for body positivity and self-love, Baez celebrates her womanhood and sensuality through her empowering lyrics and musical attitude.

Elle Baez doesn’t ask for your attention; she demands it.
Claire Seymour
Claire Seymour
As an emerging artist, Claire Seymour embodies a singer-songwriter identity, tapping into a market most suitably described as “musical theatre goes pop.” Influenced by artists such as Sara Bareilles and Maggie Rogers, her passion for artistic lyricism facilitates a unique intimacy and storytelling nature throughout her music. That same passion for storytelling extends into her performance practice, where she draws on musical theatre backgrounds to convey a song not only sonically, but physically as well. Growing up a dancer, Claire’s performance practice also draws from Hip-Hop and R&B-based artists such as Beyoncé, highlighting the strong, unapologetic, multifaceted woman.
As a 20-year-old artist studying at New York University, Claire hopes to embrace the energy and diverseness of New York City and infuse it into her music. Claire comes to New York from her home school, the University of Michigan, and brings with her the life and pizzazz of her hometown, Chicago, Illinois. Her first full album is set to release mid-2019.
