Elita

Growing up in Cupids, Newfoundland, Canada, a town of less than 800 people, Elita spent
most of her childhood in isolation. With encouragement from her parents, she developed
artistic skills in photography, drawing, dancing, singing and music. She changed high schools
frequently as a teenager. Feeling removed from friends, she found comfort in social media,
where she began gaining a following on instagram in 2015, and began modeling. In 2017,
Elita launched her own business, designing zines and a few years later, a weapons jewelry
line. That same year, she met her boyfriend, Tim. Although Elita hadn’t engaged in anything
musically since she was a teenager, Tim recognized her musical potential and encouraged
her to start singing again. The couple recorded a cover of ‘After Hours’ by the Velvet
Underground.
