Los Angeles, CA – BMG Recorded Music is excited to announce the new partnership with indie label, Tiller Inc., and the signing of Swedish pop singer-songwriter, Ellen Krauss! With her self-taught talent and captivating way of delivering norm-challenging messages, the outspoken 18-year-old pop promise is a fresh example of the young DIY generation. Ellen’s new single, “On The Bus,” a teenage love song about unrequited love, is out today and is available to stream and download HERE.

Before releasing any music, Ellen received praise from music icons Carly Rae Jepsen, Max Martin, and Laleh when she was awarded Rookie Artist of the Year at the Denniz Pop Awards in Sweden. Her debut single and LGBTQ acceptance anthem, “The One I Love,” has already racked up over one million total global streams since its release in April and was added to over 1,500 playlists so far, including Spotify’s New Music Friday (Sweden).

Since the age of four, Ellen has been one with the guitar and spent the majority of her youth secretly writing songs in her room at home in Stockholm, or in South Africa where her family occasionally lived, drawing inspiration from diverse artists such as Ed Sheeran, King Princess, Dire Straits, and Bruce Springsteen. She is a playful, charismatic, and emotional storyteller who uses her songwriting to challenge the norms that today’s youth is fighting. She is outspoken about LGBTQ equality, women’s rights, and pushes back against the traditional social structures that a young girl should fit into.

Ellen will be releasing more music throughout the year, with her first EP currently in the works. She also just made her U.S. live debut last night in Los Angeles at the Hotel Café. Keep up with Ellen on her socials for more music, touring updates, and additional exciting news to be announced.

Los Angeles, CA – BMG is excited to welcome Jocelyn to the recorded music family! The Omaha-based singer/songwriter unveiled her debut single, “Speak Up,” last week, which is available to stream/download HERE. The official music video is also out today and can be viewed HERE.

“You may not know Jocelyn yet, but you will.” – Omaha World-Herald

The uplifting and infectious track was co-written in Los Angeles with producer/composer, Denny White, (The Fray, Tiësto) and chronicles a personal bullying experience she endured and how she worked to overcome it. With its righteous chorus, catchy guitar work, driving bass, and bombastic beat, listeners can hear traces of her major influences – from Shawn Mendes and Gabrielle Aplin, to Ben Howard and Ed Sheeran.

“ ‘Speak Up’ is about turning negativity into positive energy instead of letting the bullies drag you down,” says Jocelyn. “It’s about realizing that you are your own individual, so speak up and live by example.”

Jocelyn’s powerful voice, mesmerizing stage presence, rhythmic guitar playing, and tireless work ethic puts the heart into Heartland, utilizing her natural talent and mature perspective to connect with listeners no matter what venue she plays. Her career began to take off when a viral video for her original song, “Just Like Everybody Else,” went viral and brought her worldwide attention. Soon she was performing on TV for Steve Harvey’s Showcase” at the world-famous Apollo Theater and for Darius Rucker on an episode of “Celebrity Undercover Boss,” in addition to garnering notice from media in her hometown. She’s also become a staple in her local music scene, recently winning Best Pop Artist and Artist of the Year at the Omaha Entertainment & Arts Awards.

Jocelyn is currently working on her first full-length album and will be releasing more music throughout the year. In the meantime, stay connected with her on her socials below.
