About

Ellen is a jazzy singer-songwriter who sings from the bottom of her heart. She manages to combine her love of music with the lessons of Paulo Coelho, Eckhart Tolle and Deepak Chopra in her songs. She calls it ‘Spiri Jazz’, jazzy melodies with lyrics inspired by New Age philosophers. In 2015 she released her debut album ‘Late Bloomer” on her own record label, an album containing wonderful life-lessons. Prior to that, (September 2014) she released the song ‘Dragonflies’. Her most recent release is the EP “Happiness” (september 2017). Apart from her music performances, Ellen can regularly be found on stage in plays, comedy shows and theatre productions. Wouter Hamel described her voice as follows: ‘Lovely voice, dare I say slightly husky. Deep and warm, quite theatrical.’
