Newcomer Elle Varner is slowly but surely making a splash in the game; and if you’re not yet familiar with the songstress, please take note. Not only can this girl sing her ass off, but she’s absolutely gorgeous!
The 23-year-old teamed up with AMMO Magazine for a fierce, vintage-style, photo spread and a super, candid interview. Miss Varner dishes about everything from her proudest moment to her musical upbringing, and of course what else she has in store for her fans.
Check out a few excerpts from her sit-down, plus all of the amazing pics.
On her proudest moment:
Let’s see… My proudest moment in music so far has to be [when] I was interviewed by a 10 year old. She did her school project on me and that was one of the proudest moments actually of my life because I said, “If I’m making a difference for 10 year olds I’m doing something right. I’m very proud of that.
On growing up in a musical family:
Yes my mother and father were both songwriters. Growing up in a musical family was like going to school before school. Everything I saw was a lesson in itself. I was able to be a fly on the wall. My mom had a lot of friends that were working actresses and musicians and I was just always around, like, taking lessons.
What we can expect from her upcoming album:
My album Perfectly, Imperfect is very different. It’s, like, a singer/songwriter album. Like, if Alanis Morissette met hip-hop and R&B. Like, I’m speaking my mind. I’m very opinionated. I write all my songs so I have that kind of approach as a songwriter but the tracks are just full of swag and just crazy stuff. There’s a lot of surprises in there; so it’s dope.
On her future in the industry:
What’s next for Elle Varner is world take over. I see myself being at the very very very very very top of the music game period but especially as a R&B singer. I think it’s time to take it back to the days when R&B was dominating and you had your Whitney Houston’s and your Mariah Carey’s and it was all good. I miss those days and I think it’s time for a change. I strongly feel that I’m a contender for that position.
