After moving to Los Angeles at the age 20, Ella rapidly started to work within the music industry. She is now working with high level artists as a music producer/recording engineer and bass player. A couple of people Ella is working with lately are award-winning band KingQueen (HMMA Awards, Hollywood in Media Awards) and artist Tamara Kumbula (Preach Records, RocNation Artist), both based in Los Angeles, CA.
Ella started working with KingQueen after a meeting with the band’s drummer who asked Ella if she could produce/record his drums and play bass for their upcoming singles and their EP. Ella accepted and started the process of recording for their single “Roller Coaster”, which after its release at the end of 2020, was nominated for “Rock Song Of The Year” at the 2021 Hollywood in Media Awards” and won “Best Band” at the International Music Video Underground awards in Paris. Ella was also part of the recording of their next single “Live It Up”, which got them signed with Curtain Call Records and released it at the beginning of 2021. Ella is now finishing the recording of the band’s next EP that will be their first EP released with Curtain Call Records in the spring of 2022.
Apart from producing, recording and playing bass. Ella has also been working on multimedia and film productions as a music composer for the last 5 years. Her most recent work was with Diana M. Putri (Winning Award Fashion Designer as “Best Designer” at the New York Fashion Week 2016) at the LA Fashion Week in November 2021. Ella was recommended to Diana’s team to work as a music composer for her runway’s show introduction video that was named “Cyber Couture''. Ella said “One of my friends called me one day and asked if I wanted to be part of Cyber Couture and composed original music for Diana. I had a lot of fun working on it. It was a beautiful experience seeing my music being played at a Fashion Show as prestigous as LA Fashion Week”
A couple more film productions that Ella has been part of as music composer are “Listless” by The Focus Group (Official Selection at the IFF Boston and Manhattan Film Festival) in 2019. As well as, “Oblivion” by The Five Sands (Official Selection at the Philadelphia Independent Film Festival and Jelly Film Festival Finalist) in 2020. “Listless” was also aired for the first time in June of 2021. First seen on DirectTV, AT&T U-Verse, Google Fiber, Frontier Communications, and Hotwire powered by SHORTS TV (Worldwide Network).
Ella was born and raised in Lima, Peru by a non-musical family. She started to find herself loving music at the age of 12 when she first picked up a guitar that her mom gifted her while at Pepe Torres Academy, where she learned to play the guitar. Ella was also mentored by Gregory Sanchez, a recognized piano player from the National Conservatory of Music in Lima. She also studied Music at the prestigious UPC (University of Applied Sciences) before she decided to move out of her hometown to pursue her dreams as a professional music composer, producer and musician in Los Angeles, California.
Back in Lima, she never thought she would be working with high level musicians and artists and be part of the music industry in the US. Now, she is one of the most outstanding musicians in Los Angeles and is accomplishing all her dreams.
Her hard work definitely paid off!
