From Newark/Montclar NJ, Sonyae Elise grew up in a musical family and spent most of her childhood in recording studios with her mother. Elise first began writing songs when she was only seven years old and hasn’t stopped since. Although she doesn’t play any instruments, Elise thinks that not being tied down to a piano or guitar gives her a creative freedom that the other contestants will not be able to match. Combined with her self-proclaimed lyrical genius, there is little doubt in Elise’s mind that this competition is hers for the taking.
Sonyae Elise releases the second edition to Lady Rebel, which includes all original material produced by multi platinum producers Midi Mafia (Frank Ocean, Justin Bieber, Jennifer Lopez, Fantasia, 50 Cent and more.)
Sonyae worked on this mixtape up until she was chosen to participate in Bravos “Platinum Hit” winning over a whole new fanbase from the show, her interest in wanting to share her music sparked. Lady Rebel volume 2 is unlike any other mixtape, ‘its symbolic” says Sonyae, which is why she chose to use symbols to describe the songs instead of titles.
