At age 21, the singer, songwriter, and actor Elle Winter has already amassed a strong fan-base from her early successes in the music and entertainment industry. Her debut EP Yeah, No. released in March 2020, proved that Winter’s unique voice and emotional, confessional approach to songwriting can reach the hearts of millions and allow her to connect with her listeners in a genuine and personal way.
Born and raised in New York City, Winter took to music at a very young age. She was discovered by Radio Disney at age 14 and took part in their “Next Big Thing” program – alongside stars like Chloe x Halle – that included the release of several singles and a national tour.
As Winter made her way through high school, she continued pursuing her music career along with acting, with roles in films 3 Generations and the Netflix comedy The After Party. Throughout this period, Winter worked on new songs and independently released the single “One More” in 2018. A radio tour followed, as well as spots on The TODAY Show and the honorifics of being named Elvis Duran’s Artist of the Month, as well as KIIS FM’s Next Up Artist. In 2019, as a freshman at the University Of Pennsylvania, Winter signed with Sony Music’s The Orchard (previously RED MUSIC) off the strength of her debut EP.
