Bio

This singer/song writer has recently been approaced to write songs for pop star Britney Spears and Bad Boy recording artist, Cassie!

Born in Italy to Eritrean parents, Ellee’s love affair with entertainment began early on as a child. The green-eyed belle began auditioning for commercials in Rome and appeared in several television spots and print advertisements before the family immigrated to Canada. There she began supplementing her impromptu sets with a rigorous schedule of classical ballet training.

While in junior high, Ellee recruited three close friends to form all-girl group Koality. The girls went on to perform in and around her hometown of Calgary for the next few years, eventually parting ways during high school.

Ellee returned on the scene in 2000 appearing as a finalist in hit Canadian reality TV show “Popstars”. With the experience further propelling her drive she set to work on her demo -- co-producing, writing, arranging, mixing and engineering the entire 12 track effort. During this time, the singer/songwriter continued to perform extensively
as one third of newly formed hip hop group Aftershock. A chance meeting between another member of the group and Jamaican reggae music stars Tanto Metro and Devante led to Aftershock opening for the duo’s Calgary show date, subsequently garnering the group local and international radio airplay with their hit single
*Gangsta Chick*. The group disbanded amicably in 2002.

In 2003 with her demo completed, Ellee embarked on a six month pilgrimage to her parent’s native homeland, Eritrea. There she continued to work on various music projects, releasing the single *Money Don’t Matter* and performing at several shows
throughout the capital Asmara, with performances alongside Dutch neo-soulster Tasha’s World and national singing star Wedi Tekabo. With the assistance of several European embassies and local sponsors the trip culminated in Ellee headlining a music festival to raise money for the country’s orphanages.

In 2004, Ellee re-located to the UK, settling in London to record new material. She has since performed at favored London hotspots, 10 Room, Aqua Lounge and private members club Mercury.
