Elena Bales (From Tadellos): Interview


The first words that comes to your mind when you hear Inspiration, Passion, and Strength

Inspiration: travel, Passion: music, Strength: Understanding

Who are you? (Answer how you interpret this question)

Just me I guess…

Why do you do what you do?

I’m lucky to have found something (music) that I really really love. And then you can’t leave it alone! But no I really love what I do and I’ll always do music in some capacity…


When did you know this is what you wanted to do, and what events led you to choose it?

I have no clue where my fascination for music came from. Maybe growing up in a household where music wasn’t the focus. So maybe it came from the unknown...I remember being 12 and wanting to dj and to make music and to hear more electronic music…I’m profusely thankful for a few local djs that really helped me out in the early days (and now)! 

Toughest thing you had to overcome to do what you do? And what/who helped you?

It can be tough at times to put out “different” music or just put yourself out there as an artist. The support and encouragement from friends and family is wonderful and somehow music inspires me to not give up when things are challenging.

Has anyone/anything ever inspired you to become who you are (to follow your dreams)? Have you ever inspired anyone directly?

The people who clearly love what they do. They end up spreading this enthusiasm, wisdom and inspiration for realizing dreams…

I would definitely like to put music out there that could inspire.


One mistake that you made in your journey? How have you learnt from them?

I make mistakes all the time. I’m trying to get better at learning from them! Probably the biggest has been instances of being too influenced by others’ opinions and not following what I really want to do.

Upcoming projects? Plans/goal? (about anything, if you have any)

Working on my solo stuff…I’ve got a few spring/summer events-details to come soon! Otherwise just working on an EP and evolving musically.

What advice would you give to other people? (Just about life in general - It could be about anything)

Be real.


Say anything you want, about anything (Last words)

Listen to the music you love.
