For some, living a dream is a privilege…a blessing, if you will. For others, it’s more of a calling. There’s no doubt that Elle Varner’s creative journey should be filed in the latter category, but even as her destiny unfolds before her, she can barely believe her eyes.
Hers was a childhood steeped in hooks and verses, melodies and choruses. Whether flipping ... Read more in Amazon's Elle Varner Store

Editorial Reviews

Elle Varner, a 22 year old Brooklyn resident hailing from Los Angeles, spent most of her childhood in green rooms and witness her parents' battle to make their mark in the music industry. While music runs through her veins, her ear for harmony, melody and complex rhythm was nurtured after attending Amazing Grace Conservatory in Los Angeles. Elle continued on her destined path and went on to graduate from NYU's esteemed Clive Davis Program of Recorded Music, where she was named the "Most Likely to Get Signed" and "Most Likely to Win a Grammy". A few years later Elle was signed to an album deal with MBK Entertainment/J Records (home of Alicia Keys). Elle was one of the first artists featured in the BET Music Matters campaign and performed on the BET Awards 2010, the highest rated and most watched Awards show on all of cable TV. Elle's unparallel sound is a combination of R&B funk and meticulous rhythm with an added quirkiness as showcased throughout her debut album PERFECTLY IMPERFECT.

5.0 out of 5 stars Can I Get A Refill? August 13, 2012
Format:Audio CD
I have loved Elle Varner's voice every since I heard her song "Only Wanna Give it to You. That's exactly the way I feel about this guy I had feelings for! I can relate to all of her songs.Elle Varner is not only an amazing singer,she is an amazing song writer..much like her parents of course. Alot of artist don't write their own music these's really rare sometimes.Elle seems to paint a picture in all of her songs, and their is always some type of meaning to all of them. She is one of my favorite female singers out right now.

I got her mixtape a couple of months ago and I was SO excited to hear that her debut album was coming out. I knew it was gonna be Fly. I bought as soon as it hit Itunes last Tuesday.

I'll just break down all the songs.

1.) :::::::::Only Wanna Give it to You:::::::::
-Well I already said I love this song to death.I think every girl feels this way about that one special guy. "No room in my bed for another lover."


I loved this song when I first heard it. The hook;"Reee-eeeee" was just so beautiful. I think she's talking about how she doesn't wanna stop talking to this guy on the phone or wherever they are. Even though "I've never had game,no never..don't wanna sound like a broken record." She still doesn't wanna get off the phone with him. Their was also a track on her mixtape "Conversational Lush." It's the album version of "Refill" and it's really slow and beautiful. It's only about a min long, but in the beginning of it,she is talking to a guy. She says things like "I don't why every time i talk to you..I don't know what to say." I can relate to this song alot too.

5.0 out of 5 stars Can't stop listening to this.. August 8, 2012
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
I fell in love with Elle when I downloaded her mixtape Conversational Lust. I love this cd just as much as the mixtape. Her cd is a feel good R&B/POP album. I can't stop listening to Not Tonight, but love every song on her album. Great job and never change your music.

5.0 out of 5 stars More Like Perfectly Perfect August 8, 2012
Format:Audio CD
Elle Varner's Perfectly Imperfect is an amazing experience! I'm a long-time R&B fan and I have been severely disappointed by the direction of the genre, but Ms. Varner has given me much hope! Her lyrics are open, honest, and filled with meaning. Her delivery is always on point. The production is a consistently creative mixture of R&B, Soul, Hip hop, funk, rock, and pop that will either make your head nod or have you sitting back in nostalgia. Perfectly Imperfect is a perfect (pun intended) debut project that has to be a sure thing come Grammy night.

I have heard a few people express their caution in buy Perfectly Imperfect because their dislike of her single Refill. While I love Refill, no two songs on the album sound alike so DO NOT let your distaste for one song prevent you from enjoying a fantastic project! At least listen to a stream first!

4.0 out of 5 stars Miss Varner. May I call you Miss Varner? August 8, 2012
Format:MP3 Music
Let me just say that I am a new fan of Elle's. I had heard samples of singles here and there, and I was less than impressed, especially with "Refill." Which is a reason the album gets 4 stars, because of it and I'm not a big fan of "Welcome Home." Yet, listening to all the other lovely samples convinced me to go ahead and press download. NO REGRETS! I don't typically leave reviews, so an album has to significantly stand out for me to even consider it.

I've had the album on repeat all day. "Only Wanna Give It To You" is sassy and fun, and J. Cole adds a nice hip-hop touch to it. "Leaf" is beautiful. "Oh What a Night" is a story. But "I Don't Care", hands down, is my favorite track on the album. And I can't pinpoint one element of why I love it, I just do!

I was so intrigued by Miss Varner's music that in reading up on her, I found out she'd released a mixtape earlier this year. Downloaded it, too! Loved it!

Yes, her voice has hints of Chrisette Michele jazz vocals in it, but she is truly all Elle. I hope she does well and goes far so that she can continue making more music.

4.0 out of 5 stars Lovely album except one song. August 8, 2012
Format:Audio CD
The only song that is not my cup of tea is the Sound Proof Room; still a pretty sexy song, but the arrangement is odd. Outside of that the album is diverse and rich. I did not waste my money. Her voice is just a pretty as her look, vain I know, but hard to miss. I listened to her mixtape at least once a day when it came out so having a full version of Refill is really nice.

My final thought it I wanna hug Elle and "..say girl you are So Fly you don't have to wish it..". I plan on making sure my baby girl realizes how pretty she is as well.

Perfectly Imperfect my ass, more like Just Perfect the way God made you...:-)

4.0 out of 5 stars One to watch August 7, 2012
Format:Audio CD
I came across Elle Varner's mixtape "Conversational Lush" and fell in love with her wildly eclectic R&B style. "Perfectly Imperfect" is her debut album proper and is just as good and as wacky as her mixtape.

"Only Wanna Give It To You" is an upbeat funky number with a groovy bassline, a touch of Hip Hop, and a guest rap from J. Cole. Varner's raspy vocals recall Jazmine Sullivan or even Macy Gray in parts, and she co-wrote the 11 tracks. "Refill" is a smouldering ballad which name checks "Conversational Lush" and actually appeared as an interlude on the mixtape. She hints to her boo what she'll do to him in a "Sound Proof Room" to rolling percussion and lashings of electric guitar.

"I Don't Care" is set to Hip Hop beats with horns softly fleeting in the background. She shows off her soft vulnerable side on the Jazzy/Bluesy "Not Tonight, while the tender "Leaf" is an absolutely enchanting ballad. Upping the tempo is the groovy club number "Oh What A Night" with jangly guitars in the chorus, reminiscent of "Runaway" from the mixtape. The midtempo "Stop the Clocks" is laden with swirling synths and hand claps. "Welcome Home" is lovely acoustic soul. "Damn Good Friends" is mostly guitar, strings, and her passionate vocals pushed to the fore as she yearns for being more than just that with the object of her affection. Closing is the sprightly Macy Gray-channeling "So Fly" touching on insecurity with one's weight and anatomical features. This featured on the mixtape.

And with that, we come to the end of a thrilling ride, one that will have you returning and returning for more...
