Ella Hohnen-Ford has been studying jazz at the Royal Academy of Music on the junior and undergrad course since she was 16, consequently establishing a well rooted relationship and deep love with the traditions of the music.
Inspired by an eclectic mix of musicians spanning across many different genres, from Ella Fitzgerald to Joni Mitchell and Joyce, her take on standard repertoire is both fresh, yet well grounded in the tradition. In her first year of her degree she has studied with Nia Lynn, Norma Winstone and Dave Holland. Her band, TreeClimbers, recently sold out their debut gig in London and she is also making her debut appearance on a record for Jonny Mansfield's first album with his band ELFTET this September.
