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.
