Born and raised in Los Angeles, singer-songwriter Eleni Mandell brings her richly imaginative lyrics and soft, breathy vocals to Mountain Stage.

Hailed by critics as an under-recognized talent for nearly a decade, Mandell has never broken through to mainstream commercial success. Yet she continues to record prodigiously, having put out six albums since 1999. Her varied influences — she calls X and Tom Waits early heroes, and has released a country album — shine through in her latest CD, Miracle of Five.
