She's taking indie music to an even deeper level
Ellen's poetic and lyrical music express raw emotion to her listeners.
Her hope is for her music to say, "No alone in their journey in life."
Originally from Southern California, Ellen moved to Nashville Tennessee in order to study and pursue her love for music. Ellen studies Vocal Performance/Commercial Music as a university student in Nashville,TN. She has performed backup vocals for Carrie Underwood on the 2014 CMA Awards and for Sara Evans on the 2014 CMA Christmas Show. She also has been presented as a New and Notable Artist on NoiseTrade and is in the top 10 artists for ReverbNation artists in Franklin, TN.
Ellen began taking singing lessons and performing “Amazing Grace” at memorials when she was seven years old. She learned to play guitar, banjo, and trombone going up and in high school. At age 16, she started her own business teaching music lessons for children. Ellen was a temporary choir director for a local Nashville church and continued pursuing her own music teaching business outside of her studies in college.
Ellen released her first EP “Halfway in the Clouds” this summer with Nick Schwarz Productions. Her single “Your Cinderella” released last fall, features a nostalgic new music video now playing on her website and YouTube.
Outside of her music life, Ellen enjoys being outside biking, hiking, and swimming. When at home in San Diego, she spends all her time surfing or just being out by the ocean.
