Ella Thompson


As lead-singer for GL and Dorsal Fins as well as a performing artist in her own right, Ella Thompson is an energetic songwriter, a rich and powerful vocalist who uses her talents to give listeners their own perception of self. Thompson’s debut record “Janus”, which takes its name from the Roman god, translates this perfectly into song. Her electro-melancholy piles in as much optimism as it can muster without forgetting a necessary dose of reality and draws on a rich range of influences such as Hitchcock, Brian Eno, St Vincent, Grimes and a hint of The Shangri-las. Such talent recently saw Ella invited to perform alongside by Mark Ronson as part of his Australian tour.
