Elle Taranis: Last but not least, we have the queen of emotion. Elle is a vocal powerhouse, that adds perfection with range, harmonies & blend to Burden of Guilts sound. While people have suggested that burden of guilt needs a bass live, they replaced it with Elle’s voice. Her voice provides fills from the emptiness that existed in certain songs. Elle also has a degree is music industry & is very proactive with handling the business side of music. Once you hear Elle sing, you lock in & can’t believe the beauty of a voice exists. She adds extras feels and emotion to Burden of Guilts sound and was the missing piece. Hearing Elle & Josh Harmonize & sing together is something you don’t wanna miss.
