Elva is Rick Bain's daughter, which you already know if you've been following their series of live videos on Facebook.

We made an exception for Rick not being under 18 because he's a kid at heart!

If you're not familiar with Rick Bain & the Genius Position give a listen to their song "I Wanna Die" for starters then explore their other songs and at least one music video on YouTube.
