Originally from Vermont, Elle Carpenter has been singing as long as she's been walking. She spent significant childhood years touring around the country with four siblings and her mother, performing and doing workshops at folk festivals, schools, and other events. At age 6 she had her first music studio experience, singing back-up as one of the "Wee-bops" of Central Vermont. Soon afterwards she recorded another album with a folk group called The Fiddleheads. From age 10 to 16 Elle toured with world/folk music group Village Harmony, traveling around the USA, UK, Canada, Denmark, and Germany.
