Elle Varner – Little Do You Know

Born in Los Angeles proper and raised throughout southern California’s city limits, Elle Varner, now a resident of Brooklyn, recalls the first time she really heard her own voice – she was nine years old and singing in her church’s youth choir. That was the spark that ignited her drive to pursue the arts. Soon after, she had a short-lived moment with the flute, followed by formal piano lessons. “I wasn’t very disciplined about practicing when I was younger, which I think was a blessing in disguise,” notes Elle, who eventually taught herself to play the guitar and now plays “drums, guitar, a little bass, a little piano and flute. Sometimes, when you know too much about an instrument, you can get lost in that. Everything from me comes from the most basic point of musical understanding.” At 11, she joined the Amazing Grace Conservatory and by 15, she penned her first song, entitled “Thankful,” while studying at the Academy of Music at Hamilton High School. The song, which she played with one string on the guitar, scored the top prize at a local talent show. Earning a coveted spot in New York University’s Clive Davis Program of Recorded Music was further proof that she was headed in the right direction. She has not looked back since. “To be recognized for my talent in a program that only selects 24 students per class, out of thousands, was like, ‘Wow!’ I knew that I had really stepped up to the plate,” says Elle. Shortly thereafter, Elle was discovered by MBK Entertainment, honed her skills even further and eventually released her spotlight debut album in the summer of 2012. Perfectly Imperfect debuted at #2 and #4 on Billboard’s R&B Albums and Top 200 charts, respectively, and eventually won Elle a Soul Train Music Award for “Best New Artist.” The breakthrough album received critical acclaim including a 4-star rating by Rolling Stone Magazine while New York Magazine declared it one of the “Top Ten Albums of 2012.”

Elle Varner’s Sophomore album, 4 Letter Word, is still on the way. Keeping her fans at bay, the Los Angeles-born singer continues her promo campaign with the release of “Little Do You Know.”

As a performer the songbird has graced the stage on her own headlining “Perfectly Imperfect Tour” and was invited in the fall of 2012 on Trey Songz’s “Chapter V World Tour,” which included her label mate and Grammy Award winner, Miguel. She would go on to close her rookie year as the opening act on rapper NaS’ headlining New Year’s Eve concert at NYC‘s Radio Music Hall. Continuing to take her place on center stage as she proudly counts the FLOTUS Michelle Obama and daughter Malia amongst her fans, Elle Varner sees no limit to her possibilities. “I think every girl dreams of being famous and enjoying all of the hoopla that comes with it, but at this point in my life, I know like I know my name that this is what I’m supposed to be doing,” she says. “I’ve been blessed with the tremendous gift of music and it’s my responsibility to share it with the world. I see big things in the future.”

Elle Varner – Little Do You Know Lyrics:
I’ve been down, I’ve been showing my place
I’ve been laughin’, I’ve been drinkin’
Just some love to cover up the pain
To maintain the illusion

Little do you know, little do you know
I was away too long, but no one told me
Nothing is how it seems so just believe me
Love is just a magic show
Little do you know

Momma said now you know
This ain’t the first time
And you won’t make it last
I know you feel everyone is gonna break me
To the point of no turning back

Little do you know, little do you know
I was away too long, but no one told me
Nothing is how it seems so just believe me
Love is just a magic show
Little do you know

Little do you know, little do you know.
I was away too long, but no one told me.
Nothing is how it seems, wish it was a dream.
Wake me from this reality.
Little do you know, little do you know.
Little do you know, little do you know.
Little do you know, little do you know.
Little do you know, little do you know.
Little do you know, little do you know.
