The daughter of a teacher and a pianist, Elbert was raised in Dallas and the suburb of Coppell, Texas. She spent her childhood playing piano and listening to music by Antonio Carlos Jobim, Stevie Wonder, and James Taylor. As a teenager, inspired by Jimi Hendrix, she began playing guitar and singing. She attended the Berklee College of Music Five-Week Performance Program, which she paid for with local performances and sales from her first album, Bright Side. In 2011, she graduated from Berklee.

Proof, Elbert's second studio album, was released in September 2010 and was produced by Elbert and Berklee professor Stephen Webber. Accompanying her on the album was an international cast of musicians from India, Israel, Brazil, Mexico, Japan, and the U.S., including Grammy-winning cellist Eugene Friesen, and Elbert's father, Roland, on piano. According to Elbert, "the concept of 'Proof' is based on a song on the CD where the chorus is 'proof that there's love/proof that there's peace/proof we can be redeemed'. That's a theme woven throughout the record — finding love and peace in the natural world, in relationships, in the mind, and even in life's rough situations."
