JELISA is a multi talented artist. Someone you should check out! The singer/songwriter was born in Amsterdam with South American/Surinamese roots. She used to be an actress and combines being model at Ulla models with being a full-time independent artist.
At young age she was inspired by jazz, soul, the 70’s and artists such as; Prince, D’Angelo, Thundercat, Fleetwood Mac, Nina Simone and Stevie Wonder. And very much inspired by contemporary and experimental styles. That’s probably why JELISA infuses NEO – SOUL, alternative R&B, pop, indie with a splash of funk with her emotional raw & jazzy sound.
