Vocalist Ayana Del Valle and Pianist/Vocalist Laurence Elder blend their finely honed talents & showmanship, creating a revitalizing new brew of music. Their unique vibe draws upon rich respective backgrounds in jazz, pop, latin, gospel, funk, and their mutual passion to “express love” through music.
