In 2016, Ella quit her Creative Director job in San Francisco to move to Austin with her husband to pursue her dream of being a singer/songwriter and has been playing music full-Time ever since. “Kind of my mid-life restoration. Say NO to stress!” She’s not going back to work when she can go on tour and create music and creative content!
“I love playing with a band and hearing the sounds take shape and find their own path, but I love to play solo, keeping it simple and letting the songs speak for themselves.”
Ella Reid is the most identifiable singer and songwriter you will hear this year. Reid puts down music that can’t be easily compared to anyone working today. Her latest release, Big Girl Pants, is a perfect introduction to Reid’s world and unique musical vision. She easily blends pop melodies with country sounds, storytelling and the drive and glamour of rock and roll, giving fans songs they just can’t stop singing.
Her writing is more hook-and-melody heavy that rings of ever-evolving country and her lyrical vibe tends to be more positive and upbeat than most of her peers. These qualities make songs like “Suck It Up, Buttercup” instantly memorable!
She has won the coveted first place prize from the NSAI at the Frank Brown Songwriters Festival in Orange Beach, Alabama and has 2 songs currently licensed for commercial use!
