Elva Snow was formed by ex-Morrissey member Spencer Cobrin and Australian-born singer/songwriter Scott Matthew in 1999 after both having moved to New York City from London and Sydney respectively. Introduced by a mutual friend the pair struck up an instant musical rapore. They released a four-track EP in early 2001, and then their first studio EP (self-titled/8-tracks) in 2005.

Spencer's instrumentation is incredibly beautiful and varied, while Scotty`s voice is mournful, haunting and poignant. The pair create a style full of inflection, emotion, wrought with precipices of tension. The songs are both musically and lyrically deeply felt and personal, they care about every song they create. This collaboration continues with Spencer penning the string arrangements for both of Scott's solo albums. Spencer's talents show on these albums as not only an arranger but as a musician, playing piano and guitar on a few tracks for Scott Matthew.

With such a combination of poetic lyrics and beautiful arrangements, this profound cohesion of musical artistry has now led to a third release with two never-before heard tracks. These songs found them reunited as song writers and after 10 years they wrote the ballad "Hollywood Ending " and reworked an older track "Last Drink". Both recorded in the very same studio as the original EP.

For the 10 years birthday of ELVA SNOW, Glitterhouse Records will make this long friendship & musical collaboration physical and digital available again.
