Presently based in Lexington, Kentucky, ellee ven is the creator and producer of the yearly music/art/fashion extravaganza, “Give Into The Groove,” which raises monies each year for numerous Lexington charities, now in its thirteenth year. ven also created TheVirtualQuilt.com, a free digital platform where supporters can upload images of their original artwork for inclusion in an on-line exhibit and interactive community experience to help increase awareness about local charities. “I call myself groovalutionary because my music and my mission are more about doing the things that I believe embody my best self. Sometimes that means writing and jamming and many times that means using my experience to draw attention to those less fortunate. There’s not a formula, but it works. It’s groovy. Feels revolutionary. So I’m a groovalutionary. Annnnd I was born and raised in California,” she laughs.
Hot Sauce Records recently released Underwater, the latest creation from ellee ven. “Underwater” is set to a mesmerizing dance-groove beat, with black-and-white, sensual imagery throughout the three-minute and sixteen-second track. Dancing blindfolded, sitting on a beach by the ocean, and in a tango with a mismatched lover left to sink.
