ROCK - Alternative
Elia is a newly formed band as January, 2015 from Milwaukee, WI. Cristina Colton (vocalist/guitarist/pianist) goes to college at UWM and Mark Soriano (drummer) goes to Marquette. Cristina and Mark both knew each other from grade school. They got together when vocalist Cristina got a show at the Miramar Theatre under her name "Cristina Aylin". Cristina asked Mark Soriano to drum for her show seen as they both went to college in the Milwaukee area and she wanted a new feel to the music she wrote. From there they made Cristina's song "Ocean Blue" into something an audience could move too and formed a band that soon turned into what it is now: Elia.
