Ella Vos (born Lauren Salamone)[1] is an American pop singer-songwriter based in Los Angeles.[2]

Career[edit]

A classically trained pianist, Vos worked as a keyboardist for BØRNS before deciding to pursue a career as a singer-songwriter after the birth of her son in 2015.[1][3][4] She first gained attention as a vocalist on the 2016 EDM track "Rolling Dice" by Just a Gent.[5][6]

Her first solo single, "White Noise", a song about being a new mother, was released in October 2016.[1] Rolling Stone described it as "a seductive, gauzy, downtempo offering."[5] The Boston Globe called her single "You Don't Know About Me" "one of the most highly charged sociopolitical songs of 2017."[1] In 2018, she teamed with Icona Pop, VÉRITÉ, and Mija to remix "You Don't Know About Me" in support of the ACLU.[7] Her debut album Words I Never Said was released on November 17, 2017.[8][9]

In 2017 she toured the US, and performed at the Bonnaroo Music Festival.[10] In February 2018 she embarked on the North American Words I Never Said Tour, with Freya Ridings.[11]

In 2018 she was named a Vevo dscvr Artist to Watch.[6] Her stage name means "she you" in Spanish.[1]

Her five-song EP Watch & Wait was released on January 25, 2019.[12][13]
