About

Ellen is a jazzy singer-songwriter who sings from the bottom of her heart.

She inspires people to make their dreams come true, to overcome their fears and to live from the heart by baring her soul and sharing the lessons she learned with her profound, authentic and personal lyrics infused in jazzy melodies with unusual harmonies. She calls it Spiri-Jazz.

She combines her love of music with the lessons of Diederik Wolsak, Willem Glaudemans and A Course In Miracles. Jazzy melodies with lyrics inspired by new age philosophies. 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”, a co-write with Perquisite. Other releases are the EP “Happiness” (september 2017), the EP “Love” (january 2019), and the EP “Peace” (september 2020).

The footage of the release show of the EP “Love” can bes een on a regular basis on Stingray Djazz TV.

Her latest album “From A To B” contains an enormous variation of styles. A stands for Acapella, B for Big Band. The Big Band songs were recorded live in the Wisseloordstudios with the Stageband Jazz Orchestra.

“From A To B” will be released with a sensational show in the Odeon Theatre in Zwolle on October 9th.

Apart from her music performances, Ellen can regularly be found on stage in plays, comedy shows and theatre productions.

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

Slide ‘Beautiful use of language, perfect elocution. I could understand each and every word.’ Slide ‘Love set to music, beautiful!’ Slide ‘Ellen sings straight from the heart.’ Slide ‘I used to work for pop stage de Effenaar (the Paradiso of the south) as a programmer. After that I worked with great musicians like Billy Cobham, Jan Akkerman, Brecker Brothers, Rosa King, Bertus Borgers and H. Brood. With that in mind I can truly say I think you are fantastic. I have seldom been this touched at a concert. I hope you continue on this path.’
