Ella Janes is an independent folk musician, whose love for writing first took the form of short stories, later combining with her passion for music to become songwriting. Her sound draws faithfully from 60s folk artists such as Simon & Garfunkel and French songstress Françoise Hardy, whose music she discovered during her time living abroad in Nantes (France) in 2013. The following year, she supported Simple Minds at Alnwick Castle, before emerging on the London music scene as a resident of Ronnie Scott’s in Soho.
In 2017, Ella was invited to appear at the TEDx event ‘2037: The Future is Our Present’ in Rome, where she performed a series of original songs exploring areas of science and philosophy. She also composed for TEDx Dresden’s 2018 conference 'Listen', where she performed in late August.
Ella opened for Jools Holland at eight dates on his 2018 Summer and Winter UK tours, finishing with a show at the Royal Albert Hall in London on 1st December. She opened 2019 with her new single 'Passenger Plane' and is set to release new original music throughout the year.
We want to encourage more people to come and see shows at Forest Arts, more often. Pay What You Decide not only allows you to pay what you can afford, rather than a fixed ticket price, but also removes the financial risk of buying a ticket for a show in advance without knowing whether you are going to enjoy it or not.
Tickets will be available to book in advance as usual, but there is no obligation for you to pay until after you have seen the show. You can then decide on a price which you think is suitable based on your experience, which means if you haven’t enjoyed it at all, you don’t have to pay anything.
All money collected will help us pay the artists who have performed, and we therefore hope you will give generously.
Please ensure you have arrived and collected your tickets 15 minutes before the show starts in order to secure your seats. At the end of the show, you can decide what to pay by leaving a cash donation in the envelope on your seat.
