Elle Deva was formed eight years ago when Italian composerguitaristproducer Michele met singer/songwriter Lauren in South Africa. The two have been working together ever since, taking inspiration from their diverse musical backgrounds and their strong Christian beliefs as artists and to compose\write and produce for other artists.
Being culturally diverse as an advantage, makes them limitless in their creative process, and even harder placing them under one genre.
“Elle Deva are a pleasure to work with. Not only they are extremely talented musicians, they also have a very professional approach to their art. I am sure that these qualities combined with their dedication will lead them to big things in the near future.”
In the 2015 Elle Deva started to produce,write and compose for other people ,using their various experiences as musicians,composer and songwriter to start a new project,and approach this side of the music business.

Interview with Elle Deva
Q: What are you working on at the moment?
A: We are working with Australian artists as composer\songwriter and producer, and we have a project with an Italian singer. And are also working on our next release.
Q: Is there anyone on SoundBetter you know and would recommend to your clients?
A: We would definitely suggest Benny Steele as Mix Engineer and Producer,as we worked with him and he was really professional and available in his honest advice.
Q: What do you like most about your job?
A: The most fascinating part is getting to work with new people, their perspectives, their form of expression. We learn so much.
Q: If you were on a desert island and could take just 5 pieces of gear, what would they be?
A: Well, we guess a guitar, notebook and pen would be the best options. WE can always record everything once we are saved haha.
Q: How would you describe your style?
A: Our style is definitely an intense mix of who we are as people and music listeners. And it is expressed in every piece we work on. Whether it be a chord progression or lyrically. It's thought provoking, fun and most importantly makes sense.
Q: Can you share one music production tip?
A: Every artist has something to offer, something another artist may not have. Something that sets you apart. Together with your experiences,your abilities, hold on to it. Grow in it.
Q: What type of music do you usually work on?
A: Electronic, pop, acoustic, soul, urban and indie.
Q: What's your strongest skill?
A: Our strongest skill lies in composition and songwriting. An added skill would have to be our sensitivity to sound, In that there's a song for everyone. And we think we place artists well within their genre.
Q: What do you bring to a song?
A: We bring our heart and soul mostly and all the influences we've been into all these years, mixed with our own character as artists.
Q: What's your typical work process?
A: Being a team, allows us to approach our productions and compositions from various perspectives. Often our singer\songwriter has a vocal line and we start from there, other times the vocal may follow a chord progression using the guitar or a song might be found using the instruments on our D.A.W. However, when writing with others, the process is usually a few sessions getting to know the artist. Picking up on their influences, style of writing etc. And we'll take it from there. It can also happen that we start putting idea down after creating a new beat,it really depends on the direction we are goin to move to,and what we do want to achieve .
Q: What other musicians or music production professionals inspire you?
A: We are inspired by a wide variety of musicians, producers and songwriters. Some of them include; Rudimental, Mark Ronson, Disclosure, Sia, John Mayer, Andy Mckee, Lianne La Havas, James Vincent Mcmorrow and Jack Garratt.

A: To work hard for their satisfaction.
Q: What questions do customers most commonly ask you? What's your answer?
A: They ask which services we can do for them ann we respond everything is in our capabilities. They ask us about our music influences and we respond the truth: a lot,thats why is hard for us to define our genre.
Q: What advice do you have for a customer looking to hire a provider like you?
A: To see us as guidance through the project and not as your final step to completing your project.
