Internationally, Eliane and Light My Fire received great praise and unanimously raving reviews. Eliane’s composition (music and lyrics) “What about the Heart” (Bate Bate) received a Grammy nomination for Best Brazilian Song. NPR (National Public Radio) named Eliane’s recording of the song “Light My Fire” as one of the top 5 recorded vocal songs of 2011. The CD features Eliane on vocals and piano, her arranging, and four original compositions. It also includes covers of familiar works by songwriters as diverse as Jim Morrison and the Doors, pop icon Stevie Wonder and jazz saxophonist Paul Desmond. Backing her is a crew of twelve high-caliber players, including special guests such as guitarist/vocalist Gilberto Gil, bassist Marc Johnson and trumpeter Randy Brecker.

With a highly successful international career, Eliane performs concerts around the world. In her work she has documented dozens of her own compositions. Her outstanding piano playing, arranging, and beautiful vocal interpretations have solidified her place in the pantheon of music giants. Demonstrating her unique gifts as a pianist, singer, composer and arranger as well as melding her immense talents in jazz, pop, classical and Brazilian music, she is, as Jazziz magazine recently called her, “A citizen of the world” and “An artist beyond category.”
