ABOUT ELLEY DUHÉ
Growing up in the small coastal town of Daulphin Island, Alabama, Elley Duhé always felt she was different from other kids her age.

At the age of 14 Elley wrote her first song with a guitar she received as a gift from her father. She would gather with her family and have jam sessions with her dad and uncles, finding inspiration to create music from the deep southern art, food, and culture that surrounded her. Throughout her later teenage years, Elley began playing for live audiences and traveled extensively throughout Nashville, Austin and L.A. to perfect her songwriting skills. With her uplifting messages, powerful vocals and the upcoming release of her debut EP, Elley is an artist to watch in 2018.
