Ego Ella May
South London raised, and the child of Nigerian parents, Ego Ella May, is set to make her mark with her eagerly anticipated long player, ‘Honey For Wounds’, which she describes as “music to heal to”.
As is apparent through her own writing, Ego Ella May has a high level of admiration for people who show their vulnerabilities through music, which she uses as a source of inspiration; “It’s so easy to lie to yourself and others, so I really admire people who have the audacity to be truthful”. Her song writing takes influences from equal measures of reflective moments of solitude, her interest in mental health and wellness, observations made while taking part in community-based charity initiatives and a desire to make the world a better, more honest place.
Along with writing from the heart, live performances are just as important to Ego Ella May for connecting with the people who enjoy her music. Ego Ella May has received high praise for her captivating performances, which have seen her headlining BBC Introducing’s Futuretense, London’s Roundhouse, a Boiler Room appearance with Moonchild and supporting Alfa Mist, Nai Palm (Hiatus Kayote), Oscar Jerome and the legendary Omar and more.
