Ella Edmondson is a contemporary singer songwriter based on Dartmoor in Devon. She has been playing her trade around the UK for a few years, whilst honing her performing and song writing skills. Ella has recently finished recording her debut album `Hold Your Horses' produced by Andy Seward (Kate Rusby, Roddy Womble, Eddi Reader). The album includes stunning performances from a host of award winning UK folk musicians, who between them have been largely responsible for the enormous popularity of the genre today. Guest Appearances include John McCusker, Kate Rusby, Andy Cutting and Jim Causley.
`Hold Your Horses' includes the track `Breathe', which was originally recorded for the BBC in 2007 by John McCusker and Andy Seward. It was featured on the program `Jam and Jerusalem', written by her mother Jennifer Saunders. The track also received plenty of attention from Mike Harding at BBC Radio 2.
This being her debut album, it would be fair to say that ALL Ella's experience to date has been gained on the road, performing with many great names of today and yester-year. Ella has already shared the stage with such legends as Midge Ure, Martin Carthy, Jaqui McShee's Pentangle, and Jools Holland. Of today's rising stars the likes of Julie Fowlis and Rachel Unthank have also recently requested Ella open for them.
