Elyssa Vulpes is a globe-trotting multi-instrumentalist indie folk musician with over a dozen albums under her belt. Having cured her anxieties (including stage fright) through a combination of her day job as a mindset, performance and artist coach and writing and performing music, Elyssa hopes to inspire others to release their “scorpion energy” – confronting their fears and regularly shedding skins.

Her music is meditative yet motivational, with not only a classic singer-songwriter style but elements of Neo-folk, Indie-rock and Americana.

Born in Italy, now based in Scotland and New Zealand her music revolves around themes of life's suffering, hope and transformation.

 Soaking up the cultural elements of these disparate places, from the Celtic Folk Traditions of Ireland and Scotland to the celebrated Italian singer-songwriters of the 1970s, her music showcases a variety of musical hues that go from sombre to comedic. Influences include Amanda Palmer, Neko Case and Martha Wainwright.

So strap up your seatbelts and let’s take a ride to New Zealand on this episode of the dHarmic Evolution podcast.
