Born Daniela Krook in Jakobstad, Finland 23 of April 1993, Ela was heavily influenced trough her childhood by her Dad's interest in music and observing him at the piano made her inspired to start playing too. Early on, Ela was introduced to bands and artists like Abba, Elvis Presley and Spice girls, a mix of swedish and international artists and bands. Ela began developing her artistry by taking voice lessons at age 15 and taught herself to play piano, and after writing her first song at age 17 it became very clear to Ela that a career in music was her “end-all”.
Making the decision to further pursue a career in music, in spring of 2018 Ela traveled to Houston, TX to study under 2X Grammy Nominee Sarah Kelly, and record with Jonas Ekman of SWEEKMAN PRODUCTIONS.
As of October 2018, Ela is signed with Sweekman artists, via partnership with AWAL and released her debut EP "Black waters". She was also on the 2020 Grammy ballot and had some of her songs pitched to a major movie publishing company.
