Maybe it’s their sincere lyrics or humorous stage presence that makes first time listeners become devoted fans of ELLSWORTH after only two songs. Maybe it’s the way ELLSWORTH presents themselves, so natural and authentic, with the fluidity of their gender finding its moment on stage and in their music. Either way, ELLSWORTH “has a remarkable way of cracking open your soul and finding the hidden corners of your heart you've too long forgotten or didn't even know existed” (Sway Wild, Dave McGraw and Mandy Fer).
With a uniquely powerful voice and a knack for lyrical storytelling, ELLSWORTH is an artist on the rise in Denver and around the world.
Currently, ELLSWORTH is a finalist in the 2022 Great American Song Contest, and they recently placed their song, Growing Pains, in the Disney+ show Diary of a Future President. “[ELLSWORTH has] a stunningly pure voice, boundless enthusiasm and a way with words that hugs deep into our hearts. They are a singer-songwriter that is finding their feet and it feels like they will only get better and better through time. Having talent is one thing but being sincere, putting in the hard work and going for your dreams through undoubted trial and error, is how you become truly great at what you set your mind to” (AnR Factory, London, UK).
