“Ella is an outstanding young jazz musician… committed and innovative improviser” — Nick Smart (Head of Jazz, Royal Academy of Music)
Ella Hohnen-Ford is carving out her place in the UK’s vibrant improvised-music scene.
Equally at home as a composer, lyricist and performer, Ella appears in a wide variety of musical projects: from folk and free music, to traditional jazz and singer-songwriter as a bandleader and side-woman.
Her group, TreeClimbers, is an ensemble born out of friendship and a love of songs. Featuring vibraphonist Jonny Mansfield, double bassist Will Sach, guitarist Tom Ollendorf, drummer Boz Martin-Jones, and vocalist Ella Hohnen-Ford, the collective draws on influences from Joni Mitchell to Bjork, creating a bespoke and empathic sound to frame Ella’s self-penned songs.
