Ela Orleans is a Polish born musician and artist currently based in Glasgow. As a solo artist she uses voice, guitar, keyboards, violin and drum machines to create cinematic songs that recall elements of psychedelic music, experimental pop and ambient music. Orleans began making solo music in 2000 whilst working at the Dramatyczny Theatre in Warsaw. In 2009 she was selected for NYFA Mentoring Program for Immigrant Artists. She was also accepted to New York based Film Scoring Mentorship Program – Composing for the Screen 2009. Her music is both mesmerising and potent and surprisingly danceable when least expected.
