I'm Elena Czaja, and I love to sing and write songs.  I’m coming out with my first album called "Through Every Storm."  This album includes eleven of my original songs.  I want to invite you to be part of this project.

 A few years ago I struggled with the fear of storms. Though some storms were very scary and tragic, God has not forgotten me.  There was a very tragic storm at RVR (River Valley Ranch) that took the life of a young boy, named Justin Diggs.  The storm affected many people, but God has even used it for good.  One of the songs on the album is called "He can Make a Rainbow." It is dedicated to the memory of Justin Diggs.  It’s about how Jesus can give us hope in the most tragic experiences and hardships.  It is also for all the people who went through and were impacted by the storm at RVR and for anyone who is struggling with a “storm” in their life.  I hope these songs are an encouragement to you!    There is Hope and God will Never Let You Go!

We have been recording with our producer Ryan Nalepa in his studio, along with Bob Smith.  Ryan is a long time friend of our family and is the rhythm guitarist of the band, Ashes Remain.    His creative artistry and musical talent have greatly enhanced and shaped this album.  He has the ability to bring the best out of each person in the studio.  Bob Smith is a great friend who has generously given his time to this project.  With his training in sound engineering and his background in EDM, he adds a unique flavor to the songs.

My brothers, Slade and Jedrek have also been playing instruments, singing, and bringing ideas and thoughts to the table.  They are both very talented musicians and vocalists.  It has been fun working together to create this album.   Ben Kirk, who is the drummer in Ashes Remain, graciously recorded the drums on each song.  

 I am very excited about this new project, but we have a big goal to reach.  I would love your support to make this possible!  Thank you so much for being a part of this journey!!
