Ella is a 13-year-old aspiring singer/songwriter from DeWitt. She began a love of performing her music at open mic nights around Syracuse and sitting in for several gigs with her guitar teacher Dave Brown's band, Grit and Grace. She won 3rd place in the Indigo Hawk Singer Songwriter Series and also placed 3rd in the Bug Country Country Showdown this past August. She gained a wealth of knowledge and experience at the Redhouse Rock Camp, and their "mini-tour" of local venues including the Experience Stage at The NYS Fair. Ella has a true passion for music and looks forward to continuing to learn from local musicians who she looks up to and gaining more insight for songwriting and performing.
