Ella Vos in Denver: WHOA
Ella Vos has been on her Words I Never Said tour since it began in Austin on February 23. It ends on March 30th at San Diego’s Casbah concluding a West Coast swing. If you missed it (shame on you), she performed on Colfax at Lost Lake Lounge on March 19th to an ecstatic and sold out crowd. We’d just like to say, Wow. With a really terrific, solid opening by Freya Ridings, the show was set up for gorgeous. “Hailing from London, 23-year-old singer-songwriter Freya Ridings self-released her single “Lost Without You,” a pop ballad about an intense, regretful moment that changed her life. Her debut single “Blackout” premiered in May.”Her debut live album ‘Live At St Pancras Old Church’ is out now and you can listen here.
Combining the power of delivery and aesthetic with the power of lyrics, Words I Never Said “was inspired by challenges she faced as a new artist and mother. Her songs often touch on taboo subjects, like postpartum depression (her viral hit “White Noise” has over 18M streams to date), abortion and women’s reproductive rights (“You Don’t Know About Me” has over 9.5M streams to date), and each have strong messages of hope and empowerment.” Toss in the brilliant accompaniment she’s touring with and the intense and well choreographed light show and you have a performance that makes the sublime danceable.
We especially loved her entrance. Magical.

And we’re not the only ones who think this “emerging singer, songwriter and visual artist from Los Angeles” is killing it. You can check out the accolades from everyone, from Huffington Post, NYLON, Coveteur, PopCrush, Sweety High, DuJour Magazine, Earmilk, Cool Hunting, Milk.xyz and more here. While we won’t belabour the point, except to say you need to catch a show when you can, we highly suggest copping an album and swimming into the elegant puddles of sound and emotion that Ella Vos has created.
Listen to her new album here. And enjoy the photos. We almost forgot to take pictures because we were enjoying ourselves way too much.
