At live shows, Ella leads a dynamic 6-piece band in soulful, high energy sets. Taking the stage as “Ella Forrest and the Great Pines”, the band combines the rich, melodious tones of the horn section with velvety vocals and groovy rhythms that will get you on your feet.

Ella Forrest currently released her debut EP “Butterflies” in the fall, which has received a tremendous amount of support throughout the province.  Each track on the 5-song EP showcases a soulful blend of sounds and a musical style effortlessly merging genres.
