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.
Listen to “The One I Love”:
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.
