ACUTE INFLECTIONS

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.

  • “They did completely original and moving takes on the songs I chose for my bridesmaids and I to walk down the aisle to. It was honestly so lovely that half of my friends and family were brought to tears.”

    May
  • “Everyone couldn’t stop talking about our cocktail hour, where they serenaded our guests and added to the NYC rooftop atmosphere of the night. It was truly a magical moment and it was all possible because of this of amazing duo!!”

    Robert
  • “They are absolutely the coolest, grooviest duo you can find to have a gorgeous and memorable ceremony! I knew from the first time I saw them that they were exactly what we wanted and they totally delivered above and beyond.”

    Laura
  • “The performance was magical and I didn’t have to micro-manage them…they just got it! I will certainly work with Acute Inflections again and would recommend you do as well!”

    Carter
  • “On the day of the wedding, everyone commented on how good they sounded and looked! Even the event staff enjoyed dealing with them. We just wish we could hear their music again…”

    Mike & Mel
  • “Acute Inflections is flat out hypnotizing. The singer’s voice elicits emotion like nothing I’ve ever heard before and I can listen to their bass lines for hours.”
