I am so excited about this year! I took a break last year form my original project to record new music and tour with Brandon “Taz” Niederauer, and now I am ready to get back on the road! Please check the tour dates as I will constantly be adding more and more.
This month, I will travel to Los Angeles to record another round of live studio recordings for the VJ Jams sessions. If you haven’t seen last years videos please check them out! I am a part of six of them but am featured with Stanley Randolph, Stevie Wonder and Christina Aguilera’s (to name a few) drummer, and the video went viral!!

Also while I’m in LA, I will be performing at the annual NAMM conference or at the surrounding events incorporated with it. On January 25th you can catch me performing at the NAMM After Party - ‘NAMM FUNKTION’- at the ROOFTOP BAR AT THE 5TH HOTEL, hosted by Chris Lord-Alge, under the name ‘Elise Testone & the Funken All Stars’. The band includes Daru Jones (Jack White, Pete Rock), Antoine Katz (Cory Henry & the Funk Apostles), Marcus Machado (Pete Rock), Nicholas Semrad (Cory Henry & the Funk Apostles), Nicole Zuraitis (Grammy Nominated singer/songwriter), and special guests. We perform at 8pm, but the party is 6pm-12am. On Saturday January 25th, you can find me at the MEE Audio booth at the convention center at 2pm with the young prodigy French pianist DOMi Degalle, and Grammy nominated singer/songwriter Nicole Zuraitis.
February 14th and 15th I am excited to perform with a new collective Called TrewCulture! They will hold it down as we perform my original music, first in Bridgeport, CT at The Acoustic and the following night in NYC at The Cutting Room.
The new Album is scheduled to be released in April!! Stay tuned for updates, new shows, and more!
Much Love always, and thank you for support,
