Elle Varner has much more to get off her chest. Thankfully, with the stardom she received from her first album, the soulful songstress experienced new love and new heartache, which as we all know makes for the best artistry.
This past October, NPR Music booked Varner for a special intimate show as part of NYC’s CMJ Music Week, which they filmed for their ‘Front Row Series.’ Held at Le Poisson Rouge, the singer-songwriter performed cuts off her anticipated sophomore album, along with favorites from her debut. Backed by a live band, Elle invited the room into the depths of what it means to battle through lies, loss and love itself.
“This past year, I’ve been through some sh*t,” she said, before launching into a stirring performance of “Little Do You Know,” a song from her upcoming album, 4 Letter Word.
Wielding a delicate rasp, and powerful delivery, she showed off the voice that’s kept her standing through it all. Watch the full set now below!
