Ella Janes

Ella Janes is an independent folk musician, whose love for writing first took the form of short stories, later combining with her passion for music to become songwriting. Her sound draws faithfully from 60s folk artists such as Simon & Garfunkel and French songstress Françoise Hardy, whose music she discovered during her time living abroad in Nantes (France) in 2013. The following year, she supported Simple Minds at Alnwick Castle, before emerging on the London music scene as a resident of Ronnie Scott’s in Soho. 

In 2017, Ella was invited to appear at the TEDx event ‘2037: The Future is Our Present’ in Rome, where she performed a series of original songs exploring areas of science and philosophy. She also composed for TEDx Dresden’s 2018 conference 'Listen', where she performed in late August. 

Ella opened for Jools Holland at eight dates on his 2018 Summer and Winter UK tours, finishing with a show at the Royal Albert Hall in London on 1st December. She opened 2019 with her new single 'Passenger Plane' and is set to release new original music throughout the year.
