Deep Ella


Rock with big hooks and catchy melodies.


Deep Ella recorded their first album after enduring what seemed to be a revolving door of line up changes. With the final line up in place, the band emerged from the studio stronger than ever to an eager fan base. The release of "last year's New Thing" quickly drew attention earning them nomination for Best Rock/ Pop in 2003 and Best Alternative in 2004, as well as Jim Beam's band of the week and outstanding reviews from various publications. Deep Ella's strong live show has earned them many support slots for national touring acts. Deep Ella has just completed its follow up to LYNT. “ How to get Free of Your Mind” set to be release in early 2005.

Flowing effortlessly through many styles and nuances this bands leaves an impression on the listener that they love what they do.
