Esmè - Ella

Esmè - Ella
Esmé is a Sydney based singer/songwriter. In 2017 she self released her debut single ‘Come with me’ which won the attention of Triple J presenters, Sony 301 and MTV Australia, who gave her the opportunity to open for Amy Shark at Australia’s first ever MTV unplugged 2018. Her second single ‘I wonder’ was a soft release and an artistic exploration, produced by Nick Herrera (Hiatus Kaiyote). This track helped to define Esmé as a complex songwriter with a poetic mind and showcased her unique vocal tone. Jackson Langford (purple sneakers) noted her sound as ‘alienesque’.

In October 2018 Esmé flew to Brooklyn and spent two weeks straight writing and recording with a creative team of 3 producers from both the UK and US including Royce Wood Junior (NAO), Twilite Tone (Kanye, Gorillaz) and Chris Penning. She left with a full body of work featuring hip hop inspired beats, swelling synths and string arrangements, jazz influenced vocals and thought provoking lyrics. Her first release is due in May 2019.

Esmé draws upon influences from the speakeasy era, injecting soul into her phrases and inflections with her breathy tone and narrow vibrato, sometimes reminiscent of Erykah Badu.

About this track...

Each one of her songs is personalised with artistic production work, painting a colourful picture in audio as her voice floats above broken hip hop inspired beats, swelling synths, orchestral movements and deep melodic bass lines. Her music leans into the realm of electro pop alongside artists such as Charlotte Cardin, Jordan Rakei, Billie Eillish.
