Canadian Music Week invites Gold Coast musician Ella Fence to showcase
Canadian Music Week, recognised as one of the premier entertainment events in North America, announces artists and Gold Coast musician Ella Fence is on the line up.
Ella Fence, along with her all female trio, will share the stage with powerful acts from all over the world.
Ella signed world wide management deal in July, after UK hit maker Phil Pickett (Boy George and the Culture Club, Sailor), director of Rugged Management, contacted her shortly after the release of her debut EP Wanderlust, inspired by her film clip produced by Double Deuce, perfectly capturing the musical and visual that is Ella Fence’s Cinematic Folk style.
With her debut single Unknown Water already turning heads with over 12,000+ listens on SoundCloud and 10,000+ views of its film clip on YouTube in the first week, there’s no disputing the considerable excitement for Ella Fence’s debut EP Wanderlust.
Not only did Ella record the first four tracks of this EP at the renowned Brighton Electric Studios (UK), home to the likes of artists such as The Cure and Royal Blood, with producer Dan Swift (Snow Patrol, Passenger), she then travelled to Paris to record the B-side track with Ken Stringfellow (REM, The Posies).
Ella returned to the UK to produce new music with Dan Swift at Brighton Electric. While in the UK, Ella learnt from the best in the business, working with Grammy Award Winner Terry Britten (who has written with Tina Turner, Cliff Richard Olivia Newton-John and Michael Jackson), Phil Pickett (Boy George and the Culture Club, Sailor), Nick Coler (who has written with Girls Aloud, Sugababes and Gabriella Cilmi) and David Lowe (TV and Radio composer for BBC).
From her first musical note, played before you see a single image, your mind already wanders into a great western film scene with Nancy Sinatra as the leading lady. Ella Fence touching the senses and evoking emotion.
With new music on the horizon, you don’t want to miss a step of this jetsetter’s journey.
Ella also takes on another alter ego, Snow White, in a dark, twisted, reinvented version of the fairytale, a collaborative major production between La Boite Theatre Company, Opera Queensland and Brisbane Festival in September 2016. Click here for more details.
Debut Wanderlust EP is available on iTunes or at www.ellafencemusic.com.
“Ella Fence unleashes her extraordinary vocal presence, a beguiling mix of freak folk, alt country and old time chanteuse” – Blank Gold Coast Magazine
“I had Ella come up onstage and plug in her Martin and do a song of hers… with her wild, swooping voice. Then I politely borrowed her acoustic and we did “Doesn’t It Remind You of Something”, and she was, of course, brilliant” – Ken Stringfellow.
“Your music is hypnotising” – Soho Radio, London UK
“Like a lone conductor standing in front of a tsunami of sound, Ella Fence seems to bend the tides of strings and strums to do her sonic bidding. In other words, it’s a pretty good track aye?” – Alex Dyson, Triple J, on leading single Unknown Water.
