PODCAST: A Vital Conversation with the Rising Jazz/RnB Singer-Songwriter Star.
'This was recorded on the evening (GMT) of 6 June, in the wake of widespread protests against policy brutality and systematic anti-blackness, as highlighted by the murder of George Floyd.
Ella decided that, due to the current social situation, she didn't want to talk about or promote her music. Ella instead shifted focus to the movement that is taking place.
Note: There is a little bit of Ella's history discussed at the beginning of the interview, just to help bring listeners who may not be familiar with this rising star just yet, up to speed.
This is such a sensitive, multi-layered and massive subject and as such I hope that Mark Williams Mark Anthony and myself (the Influenced Podcast team) have done it justice.
We hope that, even with such distressing, sensitive and multi-layered subjects being discussed, you can still find enjoyment in the show, we are sure you will find inspiration in it.
We thank Ella M. both for her time and for her choosing to shift the focus from promoting her own music and brand to that of the work being done to dismantle police brutality and systematic anti-blackness.
Ella, I think I speak on behalf of the whole Influenced Podcast Team when I say you are welcome back to the show whenever you like.'
