Ella Fence is a singer-songwriter and virtuoso musician whose music seamlessly combines elements of guitar-based rock and roll with avant-garde influences, creating a unique and dynamic sound. She has been recognized for her talents, earning a nomination for Australian Women In Music’s “Best Development Artist” in 2019 and accumulating eight Gold Coast Music Award nominations, winning two. With over four million streams on Spotify, Ella is an artist to watch. Her sound is often compared to the likes of St. Vincent, PJ Harvey, and Florence and the Machine. In late 2023, Ella will be releasing her debut album internationally. She has collaborated with both Australian and American producers to create an unfolding body of work that showcases her renewed interest in guitar-based rock and roll and avant-garde elements. Her new music is personal, authentic, and avoids the superficiality of today’s pop sound. Her sound is literate and sensory, unapologetically demanding, with soaring vocals and piercing guitar playing that is sure to make an impact on the mind, body, and soul. Ella is known for her relentless touring schedule, performing throughout the country and winning over audiences with her wild and fierce shows. She also does major supports for other artists including Kate Miller-Heidke, Regurgitator, Hope D, Baker Boy, Katie Noonan, Montaigne, Stonefield, Jack River, Grinspoon’s Phil Jamieson, Pink Matter Band, The Peep Tempel, Boo Seeka, Ken Stringfellow, Alex Lloyd, and Tia Gostellow. Ella is an artist who is not afraid to challenge the status quo and push boundaries. Her music is designed to disturb the comfortable and comfort the disturbed.
