New York, NY (Top40 Charts) Girlboss has officially declared Elise LeGrow their Boss of the Week, commending the Canadian powerhouse's fearless mission of "re-imagining soulful classics for a new age." With a thunderous rasp and spellbinding style, Girlboss confirms Elise is "on the verge of a musical breakthrough," unveiling her latest single - "Going Back Where I Belong" - as proof.
The track is a blistering blues, as Elise channels the hardened, broken hearts and turbulent growls of the Chess Records legends she honors. Check it out here alongside a Q&A tracking her matured measurement of success, a transformation from 14-year-old shopgirl to vintage enthusiast, and the guiding principle to which she's entrusted her career.
Elise LeGrow's debut LP, 'Playing Chess' (out 2/16 via S-Curve), defies pop culture chronology with help from Questlove, The Dap-Kings, and producer Betty Wright. Her elegant, generation-blurring performances are a "dazzling trip to yesteryear" (Pancakes & Whiskey), earning praise from Billboard, Mojo, Okayplayer, and others, while carrying her to the top of Spotify's viral charts and the stage of 'Later...with Jools Holland.'
