Season 2 Episode 15: EE Beyond

Join your host Gill Sotu and guest artist EE Beyond, a multifaceted, resilient, and talented songwriter, musician, and fashion designer from Los Angeles!

EE Beyond, also known as Elaine Faye, is a Los Angeles–based musician, songwriter, sync songwriter, and fashion designer living with terminal breast cancer. She has one of those poetically tragic stories that instilled within her resilience, strength, and power from a young age. Out of these experiences came her desire and need to write and share her emotional journey through music. Originally hailing from the Seattle area, she relocated to Los Angeles to attend the Musicians Institute after competing in a nationwide contest and winning one of three available full-ride scholarships. Since then, she has been working nonstop on perfecting her craft and sharing her music with the world. Since graduating from the Musicians Institute, she has had over 300 song placements in television and film, and her performance credits include Coachella, SXSW, Bonnaroo, and private Grammy events. She has collaborated with Sony, MTV, and NBA Labs and has performed in a Sony commercial, a Lincoln car commercial, and an ad partnership with Snaps X NBA Labs.

The Poet’s Tree, hosted by Old Globe Teaching Artist, spoken word poet, and actor Gill Sotu, is a new program that takes a deep dive into the world of modern poetry and how artists tell compelling stories using only the power of the spoken word. Each week Gill will interview a poet and discuss their poetry style, how it is effective, tools they suggest to help the audience grow in their own work, and inspirations. Get swept away by the power of words and learn how to write your own poetry with weekly prompts!
