Our names are Elasea Douglas (former Broadway singer) and Sadiki Pierre (bassist), and together, we are Acute Inflections. One reviewer described us as “a velvety mix of Erykah Badu & Billie Holiday paired with the cool grooves of a 007 on bass”. While we are based in New York, we travel across the country performing for corporate events, weddings, and exclusive soirées. We’ve shared the stage with Jennifer Hudson, Keith Urban, and other notable artists, and our diverse repertoire includes Jazz, Top-40, and everything in between. We also work closely with each client to select attire that complements their theme. To learn more about our personal stories, click here.
