At the age of 18 she began recording her written songs at her fathers studio. She had them showcased on the net and received loads of positive feedback. In a recent encounter Ells stated; "Music is my passion, I can never put just 100% into my music, it has to be more. It's never enough, Perfection is my aim. I want this so much and I'm not going to let anything or anyone get in my way. Settling for *Good* is not an option for me. I have to keep pushing and pushing myself to be the best, I WILL be the best."
Ells has a whole variety of different influences. She has been influenced by Michael Jackon, N-DUBZ, Cleo Sol to Nirvana & Alicia Keys etc. She loves all genres of music and she tends to be as versatile and diverse with her creativity and material as possible. Ells taught herself to play Guitar & Piano, composing her music whilst adding lyrics & harmonies. Growing up she won numerous singing competitions. She Also stated; “I believe music comes from the heart, anyone can get into a studio and "Record" a song singing by numbers but it takes a REAL musician/artist to express emotional passion into their work, add their own unique touch and own their song.”
