About

Ellen is a jazzy singer-songwriter who sings from the bottom of her heart. She combines 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 are the EP “Happiness” (september 2017) and the EP “Love” (january 2019), part 1 and 2 of the trilogy “Peace, Love and Happiness”. Life footage of the release concert of the EP “Love” can be seen regularly on Stingray Djazz TV. Ellen is currently working on het latest EP “Peace”, that will be released in the Odeon Theatre in Zwolle on october 2cnd 2020.

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.’

Bertolf Lentink: “I am such a fan of your voice!”

Becca Stevens: “You are such a beautiful talent! Love the vibe of the tunes, and the beautiful tone and confidence of your voice”
