Elan Mess toured the country with their debut album “Wanderings in Blue” released in September 2021. In this show they bring the songs that make up the album as well as other surprises. With a strong foundation based on rock from the 60’s and 70’s, Elan Mess seek to bring new sounds into the genre and include more and different instruments in their compositions. Their songs are distinguished by a strong presence of melodies and vocal harmonies as well as arrangements inspired by orchestras and soundtracks.

Elan Mess was born as a project in 2017, with Daniel Chen and Nuno Martins on guitars, João Cristo on bass and Vasco Lopes on drums, when they got together to play some covers. The idea quickly gained more seriousness and with some originals already composed, in 2019, Gabriela Silva was invited to join, assuming the position of vocalist and pianist. Together they composed what was their debut album “Wanderings in Blue”, recorded at Blacksheep Studios in Sintra, by Francisco Dias Pereira (Them Flying Monkeys, Marinho, among others).
