Elke quit her modeling career and changed her name. She’s also releasing an independent album this month. I admire her so much for taking a chance on herself. Not enough people want to take the risk that is involved in changing careers. Some people don’t even want to risk moving the furniture or changing their appearance.
Elke’s EP Bad Metaphors will be released on April 20. Her voice is a little bit different, kind of husky. However, she is worth taking a chance on – in the same way, someone took a chance on Nina Simone. (That might be a bad metaphor – just go with it.)
There are three songs on the EP. It still seems weird to me that there are singles, albums and EPs. An EP has more songs than a single but less than an album. I’m old school I guess.
Two Lives is my favorite song.
On a side note, after the Bad Metaphor album, this was my second favorite bad metaphor on the Internet: He fell for her like his heart was a mob informant and she was the East River. (Mistupid.com)
