I am a calm and focused acoustic and electro harpist, comfortable in classical, hip hop and improvisation. I read charts and sheet music fluently and am comfortable working by ear and coming up with my own ideas. I co-write songs with my band Ranagri and Ian Crabtree and have contributed harp to tracks by Deacon, Tertia May, Subculture and Ruti.
I can record at home with my contact condenser mic AKG C411 and a Shure Beta 87A, or at a local studio. I work every week in London and Birmingham and live near Cambridge, UK. A quote about my session work in the field of hiphop, reggae and pop from Ivor Novello winning producer Cassell the Beatmaker: "Working with Ellie is a breath of fresh air. She always brings an inspiring musical elegance that she is very good at applying to any genre, bringing a new fresh element to the way you can use the sound of the harp to elevate your music." Cassell the Beatmaker; songwriter, producer Plan B, Akala; drummer with The Streets.

Ellie is AMAZING! I didn't really have much of a direction with what I wanted, but I knew I wanted some Harp sprinklings on a particularly challenging song. I reached out to Ellie with the track and a playlist for inspiration, and she just cracked on a hit the nail on the head. We've worked on loads of bits since and will continue to do so. Couldn't recommend her enough!
‘Ellie has done lots of in situ tracking for me on her electric harp. She plugs it directly into the interface so the tone is really pure and the bass on it is fantastic. Ellie takes pride in finding the right additions to make the finishing touch to a track or she’ll inspire you with her bass lines from earlier on in the writing process’
