"Houston Chronicle"

'Deep Ella has carved out its own brand of sticky melodies that has people listening.'

- Maurice Bobb

"Houston Press"

'With the loose, laid-back, bluesy feel that its name implies, local band Deep Ella succeeds by employing simple hooks and sweet, airy vocals that don't just speak of emotions but act as conduits for them. "Afterall" is both the band's best song and the one most likely to make it to radio. It embodies all the qualities that make up Ella's best work: delicate music, moving vocals and a confident message buried beneath the uncertainty.' - Ray Hafner

"The University Star"

'Comprised of spectacular guitar riffs, strong lyrics and beautiful harmonies. The melodic lines are moving and beautiful. Everyone should witness a live show from Deep Ella at least once because its honestly one of the few "true" bands left.'-Erica Neiswender

- The University Star (San Marcos)

"My Texas Music"

'Deep Ella brings a fresh approach to today's music. These guys are Houston's best chance at Alternative Rock superstardom. Well penned lyrics, and masterful orchestration make this a great disc.' - Lucky Boyd

"Houston Daily Cougar"

'Local band Deep Ella has been doing something right in the past year...the band currently has a fan base larger than ever expected in such a short amount of time. The band has its foot in the door of something interesting. Combining a wide array of musical genres, the result of the conglomeration of harmonies and melodies is breathtaking.' - Shiley Carter

"Rock Record Label SDR"

'With a nomination for best pop/rock band you may already have heard of Deep Ella. In fact most people already know this is a great band. Don't let that stop you from taking another listen. Dust off that CD or buy it if you don't own it yet...Flowing effortlessly through many styles and nuances this bands leaves an impression on the listener that they love what they do. Reminiscent of a post modern version of U2 or Live with a hint of English rock sensibilities with songwriting which is thoughtful and decisive, this is a good solid rock album from a good solid rock band.' - Rock Record Label SDR


Still working on that hot first release.



Deep Ella is an American alternative rock band from Texas. The brainchild of singer/guitarist Jeff Crowder, Deep Ella has found a unique sound all their own. A native of Houston, Jeff was inspired to form the indie pop group in the wake of a broken romance. Finding an unlikely middle ground between electro art rock and a pop-friendly sound, the brainy music group delivers emotionally driven rock songs with eclectic elements that are familiar but not a replicant. Deep Ella has recently had the pleasure of supporting national touring acts like Civil Twilight, Blue October, Hoobastank, Bob Schneider and the Paper Tongue.
