Elise Trouw - mashup: Foo Fighters meets Bobby Caldwell

Photo of Elise Trouw by Justin Higuchi, music video of live one take mashup of Foo Fighters Everlong meets Bobby Caldwell What You Wont Do For Love

The Quiet Storm is proud to present Elise Trouw. Her delivery is polished with a well developed groove as a talented multi-instrumentalist and vocalist. As a one girl band relying on looping, her skills as a great arranger shine. She has just the right touch on everything.

Drums are her main instrument, but she is gifted all around with broad skills.

She is 18 years old mashing up the 20 year old song titled Everlong by the Foo Fighters and the 40 year old Quiet Storm classic titled What You Won't Do For Love by Bobby Caldwell. She sings, plays keys, bass, guitar, drums and does it all with groove, amazing grace and a little bit of a nonchalant attitude as if it's second nature, all in one take.

Listen to all of her recordings that are out there so far and it's easy to note that she is multi-dimensional with unlimited crossover potential, so it's a futile idea to attempt to pigeonhole her style or gauge which genre she'll dominate. But this track and music video below falls quintessentially into The Quiet Storm format, all the way :)

This viral music video landed Elise her debut network TV appearance performing two songs on ABC-TV's Jimmy Kimmel Live on January 30, 2018!
