Season 1, Episode 1: Elías Krell
“The songs may be fine-tipped in their melodic and emotional detail, but songwriter Elías Krell comes from a big world and it shows. Opera singer turned academic and adventurous singer-songwriter, Elías has lived in Germany, England, Greece, Honduras, México, and the United States, landing, for the moment, in Kingston, NY. Their music is defiantly trans-genre, its core in bilingual dream pop in Spanish and English. Their second studio record, XO (2018), offers eleven tracks of righteous pop, punk, rock, and americana and features Gerry Leonard, Jesse Murphy, Manuel Quintana, Clifford Carter, Jem Altieri, and more. In addition to performing, Krell is Assistant Professor of Women Studies at Vassar College, in Poughkeepsie, NY. Their research centers on the singing voice as a sonic lens for liberatory and critical transgender politics. “
