Estelle began playing the piano when she was 5 years old and went on to study saxophone. Later, she became an avid dancer and was formally trained in opera.
In 2013, Estelle moved to Oakland, CA, where she felt drawn to the diverse and respectful community. Her love for the state of California and its people led her to change her artist name. As a musician, Estelle draws inspiration from artists like Nina Simone.
