Elinor Sitrish is an Israeli-American singer-songwriter born in the city of Dimona, Israel.
At a very young age, she had an affinity for music. She began singing, writing, and performing as early as 9 years of age and routinely kept doing so throughout her school years. Shortly after graduation she began working with other professionals in the music industry and performed around Israel and Europe. Elinor's musical influences are incredibly diverse ranging from classic to modern Rock, Pop, Blues, Soul, and Jazz. Her ability to infuse this vast range of musical styles along with her deep middle-eastern roots helped create a truly unique concoction of her own.

Elinor also released I Will Believe and Goodbye Is Not A Word written by the well-regarded singer-songwriter Michael Caruso. While working on her solo projects she met with the award-winning composer, producer, and peace activist, Yuval Ron. Yuval was so impressed with Elinor's unique voice and her natural connection to the middle eastern sounds he invited her to join his world-famous ensemble, The Yuval Ron Ensemble, as a lead singer.
Elinor's performances in both, small and big venues in the US and around the world continue drawing old and new fans.
