She’s a key member of the Rudimental family, having sung their chart topping Waiting All Night and been on tour with the band for much of 2013.
Along with MNEK and John Newman, Ella is one of the bright, young musical talents to get caught in the slip stream of the Hackney dance act’s success. But her talent is well able to stand up on its own two feet. She’s since collaborated with a number of exciting pop producers including Bastille, Tine Tempah and Naughty Boy and is now gearing up to release her own debut EP Deeper.
The collection shows off her slick songwriting skills, a voice fuelled by a love of Motown, classic R&B and eccentric pop as well as the warped production of Two-Inch Punch. It’s a single which has hit written all over it.
While she now counts Fraser T. Smith (Adele, Taio Cruz), Claude Kelly (Bruno Mars, Jessie J), Raphael Saadiq (Joss Stone, John Legend) and Chris Loco (Rita Ora, Emeli Sandé) among her producers and co-writers, she’s also hard at work on polishing off a debut album due for release in the new year.
Throw in a recent nomination by the BBC in its Sound of 2014 shortlist and Ella’s future is looking dazzling. Check out Deeper below...
