PRAISE FOR ELLA JANES:
''Ella has a unique quality to her voice that had the other guests in my studio pleasantly suprised - even one who a claimed not to be 'a folky fan'. There's a subtle frailty which gives the songs a real emotion. I would be happy to have Ella back on the show at any time.'' (John Govier, BBC Radio Devon)
"Ella Janes is an accomplished musician and has a unique style which is instantly likable and engaging. Her songs are fresh, original and very honest, and passion oozes with every chord she plays." (David Durant, Head of Live & Unsigned Music, Brooklands Radio)
''At 21, Ella is a consummate professional, with a talent that belies her age. She has the ability to take a dark, cold and miserable night outside, and turn it into something magical and entertaining. Her live show is always evolving, and she's not afraid to try new things. A class act.'' (James Knights, Scarlet Soho)
