Episode 29 – Ella Fuchs (Ella & Nik)

Softly spoken, sensitive, and soulful – that’s not only the way to describe Ella Fuchs as a guest, but also her music too.

Ella & nik live in Berlin

Originally from Berlin, Germany, Ella still strolls the streets, spreading her guitar-driven melodies of love and loss. With early beginnings in a somewhat musical family, Ella soon discovered that music is not only a good personal outlet for problems, but a way to connect with people, to have fun, and to tell a story.

One-half of the duo Ella & Nik, Ella and I talk about how to get started in music, the competitiveness of the scene, and who the music (of anyone) is actually for.

Quick editorial note: the sound quality in this episode is a little all over the place. Unsure why this is the case, but I suspect it has something to do with the filters used to create a ‘podcast voice’ in Adobe Audition. This will be fixed for the next episode.

Also in the episode

Not much else this time, due to illness (trying to save my voice). But I am playing live on 20 Nov 2019 – tickets available here.

Also, I quickly ran through some of our upcoming episodes with Tidal Wave, Forest Island, and the Acoustic Guitar Project (certainly worth checking out in advance).
