The Empire State Elevators are hitting the road for three performances in May, sharing the bill with Melbourne-based songstress Lucy Wise.

More details on our gigs page!
We had a blast performing to gorgeous audiences in Melbourne and Castlemaine in both our QUINTET and TRIO incarnations, and thanks to the wonderful videography of Agatha Yim and Stewart, and the exquisite sound recording skills of Mischa herman, the Elevators now have video! Check them out on our sparkling new Listen/Watch page :)

Our project is celebrating its 3rd birthday - at least - and to celebrate, we've gone ahead and cooked up a website. Thanks for joining us here!

Exciting times ahead for ESE, as we prepare for our first Melbourne performance in Albert Park in November, and as our slowly-marinating debut album nears its completion - with an expected release in 2018!
