Elaine Kristal released a new single “Escape to a Far Away Place”
Elaine Kristal, a multi-hyphenated musician from New York City, sings about attempting to find some peace with a lover with a production that sounds like a cross between drill and early 2000s R&B. The song is about searching for someone who can provide you with a brief respite from the stresses of everyday life.
Singer and songwriter Elaine Kristal hail from Staten Island, New York. Alicia Keys has been a constant source of inspiration for this powerful and soulful soprano since she was a child, and she has been performing in school plays and singing in the hallways of her high school, all while sporting a bandana and hoop earrings.
Her father introduced her to Latin musicians like Selena and Janet Jackson, Blackstreet, and Prince, and she developed a love for music and the emotions it evoked in her. She couldn’t ignore the influence of her Puerto Rican heritage on her taste in music. It’s impossible to get enough of Elaine’s voice when she sings because it strikes a perfect harmony between soothing and angry, soothing yet rousing.
When she was 13, she wrote her first song and was in the studio for the first time, she felt she was destined for this career. It is easy to hear how Elaine’s music is influenced by artists such as Usher, Brandy, and Aaliyah as well as Justin Timberlake and the performances of Def Poetry Jam. Her music has a vintage R&B vibe with a contemporary bounce to it.
