An accomplished jazz vocalist with a unique talent for song interpretation Etta D’Elia has made an indelible impression in Perth as an Italian Singer in the decade since she moved here from her native country, Italy.

From an early age it seemed that Etta was naturally theatrical, so much so that by the age of five, visiting relatives would pay her money to tell jokes and stories. It wasn’t all for laughs, however, the power of music was also taking hold. By the age of six, Etta was taking piano lessons, a dedication to craft that was complemented by her enrolment at The Conservatorio, learning classical vocal training followed by a Master’s Degree in Music Education.

As an accomplished and skillful Italian Singer, Etta D’Elia was honoured to sing twice at the Vatican in Rome, both times her singing was broadcast live on prime RAI1 Television. In the 2004, she sang for Pope John Paul II and in the 2005, she performed for the show “Notte di Luce” in the presence of the Pope Benedict XVI. Etta has pursued jazz performances all around WA in duos, trios and quartets at venues such as The Ellington Jazz Club, The Crown, Pan Pacific, Ritz Carlton, Duke Of George, and The Lyrics Underground.

In 2014 at Perth Concert Hall, she performed solo for the “Carmina Burana” by Carl Orff, and in 2018, Etta performed live for Telethon on Channel 9. Etta has recently presented her Italian Jazz Show “Buona Sera Signorina” at the Courtyard of the State Theatre Centre of WA for Fringe World 2023 with an attendance of more than 500 patrons.

  • Phenomenal jazz vocals”

    Magazine 6000
  • One of the highlights I will mention in this review is the audience engagement as each time Etta introduced a new song, she brought the audience into every word she said – and even had the audience standing up and dancing as either a couple or by themselves for a small section of the event.”

  • Etta D’Elia, resplendent in her red dress, gave us a set of Italian classic songs, many of which we knew well. Etta has been singing and performing since childhood and is classically trained. We saw Etta’s range when she broke into a bit of opera style

    Perth Happenings
  • D’Elia’s beautiful and powerful voice renders the classics her own. The jazz arrangement of ‘Hey Mambo’ is a stunning version of a fan favourite, and her voice lends itself perfectly to the gorgeous ‘That’s Amore

    The Fourth Wall
  • Etta and James performed for us at a private gig for my husband's 40th birthday. All our guests were enraptured by Etta's rich and mellow voice as it blended so well with James on the guitar. The duo understood the vibe we were going for and did all they could to make the evening special. I wouldn't hesitate to re-book or recommend them

    Laura - Private function client
  • Etta D’Elia trio and quartet has been performing quite regularly at The Volstead Lounge since its opening in 2021.Etta and her band have always been very professional and reliable, delivering high-quality performances, that our customers enjoyed very much!Etta has also been very helpful with the promotion and the marketing of our events!I would recommend Etta D’Elia trio and quartet to everyone”.
