From her home base of Dallas to Las Vegas to India to Dubai, the world is falling in love with Laura Ainsworth. With her satiny, nearly three-octave voice, her sexy sense of humor and her trademark elbow-length gloves and beaded gowns that would fill Julie London with envy, Laura ushers audiences into her own enchanting world...a cocktail mix that combines the elegant retro style of nightclub shows of the ‘40s and '50s with sophisticated modern musical twists. She calls it "nu-vintage." It’s an intoxicating blend that has attracted some of the top jazz players in Texas to her side, including longtime partner Brian Piper, one of the most sought-after pianists/producers in the Southwest.Big band and lounge jazz are in Laura's DNA. Her late father, Bill Ainsworth, was a renowned big band sax and clarinet master and arranger. He began at 17 as possibly the youngest-ever member of the Tommy Dorsey Orchestra, and went on to play with Freddy Martin, Tex Beneke, Ray McKinley, cocktail jazz pioneer Ernie Felice and other top bandleaders. Much later on, his young daughter watched enraptured as her dad accompanied such showroom idols as Ella Fitzgerald, Tony Bennett and Mel Torme. Laura grew up worshiping the great jazz, big band and club singers such as Ella, Keely Smith, Doris Day, Julie London, Margaret Whiting and Rosemary Clooney, as well as comedienne/singers Madeline Kahn, Carol Burnett and Mary Tyler Moore. Both music and humor became a big part of her life.Laura's debut album, Keep It To Yourself, produced and arranged by Piper and featuring his jazz trio (John Adams on bass, Mike Drake on drums), spotlights Laura's amazing voice, surrounded by some of the greatest jazz musicians in Texas in a delightful genre- and era-skipping collection of songs from the 1920s to today.

Ellacey Selah was born to Willie and Patty Hunter October 15, 1970. She attended Parks Refuge C.O.G.I.C. with her mother and father. When she was old enough, she joined the “Sunshine Band” which led to her development and love of the arts. Her father was also a great singer and constantly sang around the house, dropping seeds into the aspiring vocalist and thespian. After her parents split up, her mother married Johnny Blane and he moved them to Dallas, TX where she began to spread her wings and grow in the music field. Inspired by her mother, Ellacey took an interest in playing the piano. Her mother showed her the basics and she took it from there, learning everything by ear. She also showed an interest in playing the drums by watching her sister, Sheila Hunter; play in the middle school band. Music was always around her and in her mind. She developed great creativity skills by playing, singing and acting at local churches in the DFW Metroplex. Even though most of the things she learned came from her gospel roots, Ellacey took the time to take courses that helped to further her creativity. Since only being known locally to sing gospel, Ellacey chose to move out of the box to see what more her talent could offer. Her skills currently include vocal coaching, singing Jazz, gospel, musical theatre, R&B blues and rap.
Award-winning vocalist, performer, actor, writer, humanitarian.
