Growing up in Cupids, Newfoundland, Canada, a town of less than 700 people, Elita spent most of her childhood in isolation. With encouragement from her parents, she developed artistic skills in photography, drawing, dancing, singing and music. She changed high schools frequently as a teenager. Feeling removed from friends, she found comfort in social media, where she began gaining a following on instagram in 2015, and began modelling for Office Magazine and Lime Crime. In 2017, Elita launched her own business, designing zines and a few years later, a weapons jewelry line. That same year, she met her boyfriend, Tim. Although Elita hadn’t engaged in anything musically since she was a teenager, Tim recognized her musical potential and encouraged her to start singing again. The couple recorded a cover of 'After Hours' by the Velvet Underground. With a growing interest in the cinematic arts, Elita focused on writing a movie script with Tim (to no success). However this attempt at collaboration led to them writing their first single, ‘I Hate Everyone But You’ (2018). They had no intention of making the song public, but after recording a test demo, they decided to release it. Tim concentrated on writing more songs with his bandmates, and sending these instrumentals to Elita who would write lyrics and perform vocals. This collaboration led to the eventual recording and release of Elita’s debut EP, ‘Sick Girl’ (2019), single, ‘Void’ (2020), and her most recent EP, ‘Blood Sucker’ (2020).
