Bio

The sound is quiet, unassuming and sometimes uneasy; an odd-shaped window into a childhood spent in transit, and imagined histories of the countryside. The first album was made in coastal Victoria, under the guidance of Paddy Mann (Grand Salvo) and mixed by J. Walker (Machine Translations). The songs are clipped accounts of pulling apart and coming together; acoustic guitar and voice fleshed out with loose arrangements of banjo, mandolin and a bunch of other stuff.

'A subdued banjo ballad that moves at a glacial pace' is a sentence I'd always hoped to write in an Unearthed review. Thanks Ellen!

Mixing grand atmospherics with the intimacy of a girl singing and playing banjo. Accomplished, shimmering and well-executed. Three for three.

My heart breaks everytime I listen to Ellen. If you don't already own 'Turncoat' I suggest you go and fucking buy it before you realise you've wasted your time listening to other things.
