Mission Statement:

 

To support the whole singing artist - body, mind, and spirit

~ Ellen Crossley

My Story:

 

"Hello, singers!  Thank you so much for stopping by, and welcome!  

 

With many incredible years of singing in bands (corporate cover bands, original artist backup singer, my own original projects), I can't explain the joy and adventures that singing and the music industry have brought me.  

 

Along the way, I have also met and worked with incredibly talented musicians who have not only inspired me and taught me so much but who have also become some of my best and longest friend relationships.  These bands and projects have taken me to incredible locations, festivals, and venues, and we have been a part of many people's special occasions and milestone events.  What this industry gives back to my heart is unmeasurable.

Also, being a singer in this industry for all these years, I have been through my own ups and downs and had to push through and navigate various hurdles and learning curves to continue to develop to reach my goals.   Like anything worth working for, a vocal journey takes time, dedication, patience, and finding learning options and coaches that are a fit for you.

 

That being said, I  want to share with you my network, my community, and the skill set that I have built to help YOU reach YOUR singing goals.  If you want to develop your voice simply for your own singing joy or if you want to prepare for live performance or recording, I would love to support you in starting your vocal journey!  

 

 

Let's woodshed and let's have some fun!~"
