Elena Diaz is a musician and vocalist originally from Houston, Texas. Her voice has earned comparisons from Karen Carpenter to Rosa Passos and is known for singing in different languages. 

Elena's musical journey began at a very young age when she became an alum of the prestigious Houston Children's Chorus. Over the years, Elena has had the privilege of performing in several iconic venues including, The Hobby Center for the Performing Arts, Stude Concert Hall at Rice University, and the Grand 1894 Opera House. These experiences allowed her to work with acclaimed artists such as Maureen McGovern, Heather Headley, and Shirley Jones. 

A testament to her versatility as an artist, Elena has had the privilege of opening for Alejandro Escovedo in 2014. Furthermore, she has shared the stage with Jon Herington of Steely Dan and Adam Scone, known for his work with Sharon Jones and The Sugarman 3. Elena's musical journey has taken her far beyond the borders of her hometown. In 2017, she moved to the South of France and began performing on the French Riviera and Europe where she delved deep into the world of Latin jazz and formed her band The FR Collective. 

Elena's talents extend beyond performing. She has also made her mark as a producer and co-writer, garnering recognition for a song she wrote for a film nominated at the Cannes Film Festival in 2022. In addition to her own original compositions, Elena released an arrangement of Led Zeppelin's classic "Stairway to Heaven.”
