Join us as we speak with Elyse Rogers, Energy Vocalist about her life and work. She will also be offering a demonstration of her amazing talent! Don’t miss it!!
Elyse joined her first band with a group of friends at the age of 14. They were called Low Profile and had eight members. Elyse began by playing keyboards and backing vocals, but eventually moved onto Lead Vocals and Songwriting as it came so easy and natural to her.
Elyse says; ‘I used to write lyrics about ‘lost love’, ‘looking for love’ etc….I would write about how I was waiting for someone to come and rescue me, love me. Nowadays I am at the other end of this spectrum and I write about ‘self love’, love energy’, ‘gratitude’ and more, all positive uplifting encouraging words.’
Following her success with MAXX in the mid 1990’s, elyse went through a period of self doubt and couldn’t sing herself for many years. During this time she undertook lots of personal development which included Neuro-Linguistic Programming, Emotional Freedom Technique, energy work, nutrition, fork-tuning therapy, vocal techniques, etc. She recalls:’ I became a workshop junkie, desperately trying to figure out how to fix things, but I also began to shape the link between sound, energy and vibration which would lead to a more holistic approach to my future music.’
Around 2009,when Elyse was working as a freelance vocal tutor, she remembers that one of her jobs was to run a music workshop with mental health patients. ‘I noticed that they loved to sing happy songs: it would lift them high and they would dance, smile and radiate an inner glow. These were special moments and it showed me that uplifting music can heal. However, although I sang along with the group, when it came to singing alone, I just couldn’t!’
Elyse says that at this time she began to feel exhausted with life. She was affected negatively by other people’s misery, their illnesses, with paying the mortgage, other bills and just existing. Inside, she had this deep yearning to live a life of rich abundance, health, vitality and happiness. She wondered if she would ever sing again. She missed it deeply and felt like a huge part of her was missing.
In January 2013, after a 16 year break from fame, Elyse from Manchester stepped back into the studio to record her first solo album, The Love Energy. The album consists of nine songs with very positive lyrics. Each song has been carefully tuned to centre on each of the nine principal ancient Solfeggio healing tones. The healing frequency runs subliminally right through each song, creating an overall balance and euphoric state for the listener.
Elyse summaries by saying: ‘ I just remembered who I was, and why I was here. I remembered my mission, my purpose. This is how I found my self-belief to pursue my music career. It was there all along, underneath, waiting for me. I just needed to believe in me again, and I am so grateful I did.’
