Judette Elliston is a Haitian-Canadian vocalist and composer based in New York. While her artistic voice is rooted in jazz, singer-songwriter and folk influences can also be heard in her music. Her originals, a hybrid of tender lyrics and adventurous harmony have been described as “a cross between Billy Strayhorn and Joni Mitchell.” An active bandleader and side-woman, Elliston has performed at venues and festivals such as Lincoln Center, The Victoria Jazz Festival, Williamsburg Music Center, and Dodge 112. Currently, Elliston is working towards recording an EP of her original music and bringing her Haitian folk project to different venues and communities across the country.
