Born and raised in Charlotte, North Carolina, Ellie grew up loving to sing in choir and to listen to her father play guitar. Ellie began performing solos in her elementary school choirs at a young age, and fell in love with learning to play guitar at the age of 10. After taking years of lessons and continuing to sing in choir and school musicals, Ellie decided to combine her two talents into one passion for performing.
In 2017, Ellie has become a singing sensation in the Charlotte area, and continues to perform all over the Carolinas. Her sound is best described as acoustic soulful pop, with influences from artists such as Taylor Swift, Adele, and Colbie Caillat. Ellie is currently working on an album of all original music, to be released later this year in December 2017, with an album release show at the Evening Muse on Saturday, December 30 (see Upcoming Concerts for details).
You can hear Ellie performing around Charlotte three to four times a week in local restaurants and breweries. She also performs for weddings, parties, special events, and volunteers monthly to sing for the patients and family members at Levine Children's Hospital at Carolinas Medical Center. For more information, please see Upcoming Concerts, News & Media, and Weddings.
Ellie's EP titled Heartstrings, released in May of 2013, is available for purchase on iTunes and for streaming on Apple Music.
