" Eli Barsi is a talented, traditional-minded country singer from rural Canada who isn’t shy about putting her Western roots into her music. Her latest album, Portrait of a Cowgirl, is an homage to her heritage, and she dedicates the poignant title track to her mother’s fulfilling life.
" [ Craig Shelburne CMT Nashville ]
" Eli has taken the time to learn the many facets of her craft, mastering an instrument, writing songs, recording, managing the day to day business, booking shows, promoting, marketing, and cultivating an audience that supports her artistry. Maybe not a house hold name, or does she have an eye popping bank statement, but she's  been making a living doing what she loves for more than 3 DECADES, which most of us would probably define as success.  Congratulations Eli !!!
