We are Elysium, a group of 4 passionate, charismatic professional musicians in which we play Top 40 Pop, Rock & R&B cover songs; to include artists such as Maroon 5, Pink, Imagine Dragons, and Adele, just to list a short few. Here is some information about the members:
Frances Gomillion (Lead Vocalist) is aggressively branding herself as a voice to be heard and a performance to be encored. Singer/Song writer is not new to singing, she has sung behind legendary gospel greats, small ensembles and was lead soloist in a mega church seating 10,000. Frances previously released an urban pop album that received lots of buzz and radio play in several cities across the county; which led her to earn a 'Best New Artist' Chicago award nomination.
James Malone (Lead Guitarist) – has been involved in the technical, melodic metal scene for more than a decade. A lifelong musician, he was educated at the Berklee School of Music in Boston, Mass., and Christopher Newport University in Newport News, Va. In addition to his work with Arsis, he has composed music for the Ballet Deviare, a contemporary ballet company in New York City, and had his own signature Washburn guitar.
George Hickey (Drummer) - has been a sought after session and studio great for over 35yrs; he has performed all styles of music for over 200 international, national, regional and local artists to include 3 Grammy award winning performers. George has also performed for such dignitaries as the Royal Prince of Sweden and has been selected as 1 of 3 judges for a national drumming competition since 2002.
Terek Richie (Bass and Vocals) - is inspired by everything from film scores to singer songwriting and all music styles in between. He has played with local greats and has opened for national acts. With his attention to composition and low end, he once again joins the stage with George Hickey to provide a rhythm section to be reckoned with.
