Multi GRAMMY® and Multi LATIN GRAMMY® Award winning internationally acclaimed recording artist, pianist/singer/composer/arranger Eliane Elias’ distinctive musical style is one of the most unique and immediately recognizable sounds in jazz and Brazilian music. She blends her Brazilian roots and alluring voice with her virtuosic instrumental jazz, her classical and compositional skills, while she consistently displays her pianistic mastery and ability to integrate the many artistic roles she takes on.
Her 2021 album MIRROR MIRROR won the GRAMMY Award and the Latin GRAMMY Award for Best Latin Jazz Album/Jazz Album in 2022. Her 2022 album QUIETUDE received a Latin GRAMMY Award Nomination for Best Engineered Album and a LIBERA Award Nomination for Best Latin Record in 2023. It debuted as #1 on Billboard, iTunes, Amazon Jazz Charts
Mirror Mirror is an extraordinary piano duet recording of Eliane Elias with the late legendary jazz great Chick Corea, and famed Cuban pianist Chucho Valdés. While her highly successful recordings have predominantly featured her alluring voice and piano mastery, the piano has always been her first love and working with these two incredible icons of jazz was a rare opportunity to record in a two-piano setting, something she hasn’t done in many years, since her piano duet recordings with Herbie Hancock.
With 31 albums and over 2.5 million albums sold to date, Eliane Elias has so far, toured in 77 countries, she is a four-time Gold Disc Award recipient, a three-time Best Vocal Album winner in Japan and winner of the 2018 Edison Lifetime Achievement Award in Holland to name a few accolades. Her 2019 and 2021 albums (Love Stories and Mirror Mirror) were both voted “Downbeat’s Best Album of the Year – Masterpiece” and as most of her previous releases, her recordings hit #1 on the jazz charts worldwide. Eliane Elias received two LIBERA Award nominations for Best Latin Record (2017 and 2023) and has been nominated 11 times by the Grammys and Latin Grammys, receiving nominations in 5 different categories and won two GRAMMYS and two LATIN GRAMMYS to date. Eliane has a strong presence on Spotify with almost half a billion streams and over 31 million Spotify listens of her song “Little Paradise”.
