“Ellen Winters referenced (Ella)Fitzgerald’s acuity at scat singing in “Perdido.” Winters' bell-like clarity of tone, distinct from Fitzgerald’s, but appealing in its own right.” - Howard Reich, Chicago Tribune review of Ella Live at Mister Kelly's
Ellen is thrilled to announce the release of a new collaboration with UK based band, Real Time Apollo. The band has two EP's out on Spotify and iTunes entitled "The Neon Highway" and "To Save The Day." Ellen sang a duet with RTA guitarist/vocalist, Paul Derrett, on "The Blue Dress" and sang backups on 'Wheeled On Part." All of Ellen's tracks were recorded in Milwaukee, WI by engineer John Wheeler and sent to the UK for final mixing. Go the the band website to listen to all the songs and then go buy them!
The band has been featured on BBC Sounds: Heresford and Worcester and "To Save The Day" has already been played this October. "The Blue Dress" is expected to be released to BBC Sounds in November of 2019. If it gets aired, look for a link to the live show here. Check back soon!
Congratulations to Ellen and the cast/crew of "Comicality 2019" on receiving the Footlights People's Choice Award for Outstanding Special Performance!
