Hailing from UK, Ella M. opens up about loneliness living in crowded large cities like LA in her single “Myself” where she taps into the constant need to rely on others as a remedy to avoid that hollow feeling. “Myself” is a smoky, airy piece where Ella’s glass-cutting vocals smoothly pierce through you as she breaks into the vulnerable corners of our inner psyche. Stream below:

On her new single, Ella shared: “after moving to LA I started spending a lot of time either in the studio or writing in my house. It took me a long time to get used to being alone most of the time. I knew from a young age that I was very reliant on other people but, moving to a new city to work brought light to the fact that I use other people’s company to put a bandaid over my perpetual loneliness. This song is me expressing my need for love and intimacy as a way to distract myself from my deep-rooted feelings/problems.”

“Myself” is from her upcoming EP and 20% of all proceeds will benefit RAINN, an organization that helps victims of sexual violence and brings awareness. That’s a double win.
