‘Ella sings new soul like an old soul.’ – Paul Kelly
Celestial and visionary, Ella Thompson is one of Australia’s most dynamic musical talents. Ella is an ardent songwriter, who effortlessly contrasts avant-garde with pop, layering vocals and synthesizers to produce poetic dance floor bops. She creates a steady stream of music, releasing work with her electro-pop duo GL and alt-pop group Dorsal Fins, alongside her captivating solo work.
Ella has toured across the country and recorded relentlessly over the last 10 years. She has fronted, recorded and collaborated with Australian deep-funk pioneers The Bamboos, where her songwriting and vocals were heavily featured on the 2013 ARIA nominated ‘Fever In The Road’. After years of lighting up stages with GL and Dorsal Fins, she was personally invited by Mark Ronson to join his band and accompany him on the Australian leg of his!Uptown Funk!World Tour in 2015, with notable musicians like Kevin Parker, Theophilus London, Andrew Wyatt and many more.
