We had the good fortune of connecting with Ella Rosa and we’ve shared our conversation below.

Hi Ella, how has your background shaped the person you are today?
I am from Henley on Thames in England, and I moved to New York City when I was 11. After living in New York for 8 years I moved back to England but and to London to pursue music writing and performing. Once I took a trip to LA for a week I realized I had to spend more time there and decided to move full time. All this moving around taught me how to be resilient and kind to new people

Alright, so let’s move onto what keeps you busy professionally?
I think pursuing any creative roll to a high standard is pretty challenging as you have to establish your Stio first and then execute. It took me a very long time to develop the sound that I have today and be confident in it. One lesson that I’m learning every day is that collaboration is key I’m supporting others through the journey is very important
