Hailing from Essex, the young singer-songwriter crafts her unique vintage-pop sound from her love for classic rock, jazz and soul. Taking her cues from the silky production of acts like Lana del Rey, and incorporating elements of synth, indie and alternative – Elle Novella’s music is deeply inspired by household names like Kate Bush and Fleetwood Mac.
Following the release of her debut single ‘Shake Me’, Elle has already received BBC Essex airplay and was featured on talkRADIO where she performed live and was interviewed by host Bob Mills. She has also supported Kosheen and has played as a guest act for Open Mic UK. Elle’s debut single was also added to Liberty London’s in-store playlist. Elle Novella returns bigger and better than ever with the release of ‘Poison’, dropping May 15th.
Elle recorded her debut EP with rising producer Anthony Trueman and engineer Felix Davis
(Lana Del Rey, Youngr). An English Literature graduate, Elle has always had an interest in art
and storytelling. This is visible through her unique and poetic lyrics. Elle changes identities and narrative point of view with every song. As a writer she masters the craft of shedding her own ego, diving into the soul of another person and experiencing the world from that point of view.
With Elle Novella set to release ‘Poison’ May 15th via AWAL. She’s definitely one to watchout for.

'Isn’t it fabulous...I am certain that this woman is going places’
- Ollie Winiberg, BBC Essex
‘I’m really into that sound, that kind of vintage pop'
'I am a big fan of the quirky groovy melodies which showcase many grandiose production skills. Moreover, the chorus is as expected very powerful. Furthermore, I also adore the well-written lyrics and the sublime vocal performance!'
- Music of the Future
'deeper pop with husky vocals that create the story of the song in such a fantastic way...Elle’s then goes straight into the chorus which is more modulated and silvery which shows Elle is an artist that can do anything'
