LAKE COUNTRY – An impressive young musical talent will be making a one-night only performance in the Okanagan this spring.

Elise Trouw is only 18 years old but she released her first full album under her own label last spring.

The album features Trouw on drums, vocals, guitar, piano, and bass guitar.

Creekside Theatre director and Kelowna city councillor Ryan Donn says he found Trouw through social media. One of her videos has been viewed 14 million times.

“I feel like it’s a bit of a scoop,” he says. “She plays all these instruments then she starts singing and her voice is amazing.”

Trouw has appeared as a musical guest on Jimmy Kimmel Live and is currently touring the U.S. She has four singles, "X Marks the Spot", "She Talking", "Your Way", and "Burn".

Donn contacted Trouw’s agent right after he saw one of her videos and within days her first concert in the Okanagan was booked for June 4 at Lake Country’s Creekside Theatre.

“Go watch the video you’ll know why we booked it,” he says. “It speaks for itself.”
