Today we’d like to introduce you to Tawny Ellis.
Thanks for sharing your story with us Tawny. So, let’s start at the beginning and we can move on from there.
I am an artist, a singer-songwriter. I have a new record coming out on July 24th. “Love Life” is a very personal record, I have been working on it for about three years. I was born in Savannah, Georgia and was a military kid living all over the place most of my childhood.
I came to LA with my dreams of playing music and have been making music ever since. This will be my 4th full album release. I live in Silver Lake. I am also a visual artist working in clay and casting in bronze. I am happy as long as I can be creative!
Great, so let’s dig a little deeper into the story – has it been an easy path overall and if not, what were the challenges you’ve had to overcome?
I am a very independent artist. I like to call my own shots but it is challenging, the music business is not the easiest career to navigate! I stick to the creative work and do my best to get the business side of things done as well. I’m learning more as I go but I keep the focus on the art!
Can you give our readers some background on your music?
I write my own music, I play the lap Steel Guitar and I play an instrument called the Omni chord.
Is there a characteristic or quality that you feel is essential to success?
I don’t try to fit into any box of genre. I think it’s wonderful to be inspired by other artists but the most important thing you can do is find your own original voice! I do feel like I have found mine, more so on this record than ever before!
