Indie singer/songwriter, Ellajay (stage name of Stephanie Schecter) draws listeners in with catchy melodies interwoven with soulful, haunting lyrics. Her music evokes raw and honest emotions, whether she sings about themes of unrequited love, mental health, or serves up the sass about friends and ex-lovers.
"Being truthful and authentic in my music allows me to actually connect with others in real and deeper ways and that is just the best thing. It's healing to put whatever I'm going through into my art and see that people relate to it. It's saying neither of us are alone in this. That connection is everything".
Based in Brooklyn, New York, Schecter's southern roots subtly influence her sound as she creates a unique blend fusing folk, alternative, pop, and electronic music in exciting ways. Schecter's passion for music and connecting with people through music led her to become a board-certified music therapist (MT-BC) in 2016. She has been writing and performing music since 2007 and is releasing new music for the first time under new moniker, Ellajay.
