New York City NY — Tuesday, July 21st, 2020 —
As in any profession, people hit their strides at different times in their life. After building a strong professional foundation singing and writing jingles, Ellen Woloshin took a leap of faith and left that arena to take on the role of performing singer/songwriter.
The daughter of Madison Avenue jingle giant Sid Woloshin, Ellen who followed in the family footsteps, wanted to make her own way independent of the jingle industry. Now, with two albums under her belt and hundreds of live shows, she has demonstrated that it’s never too late to alter your path.
“Woloshin’s pure alto voice has emerged as a fine, elegant vehicle in its own right, adept at expressing sentiment without pitching into sentimentality.”
– Piers Ford, Art Of The Torch Singer
“None of us knows enough about his own beauty”
-David Schickler, Kissing In Manhattan
in addition to performing her own songs, Ellen has also written for artists like Dionne Warwick, LaToya Jackson and Ben Vereen and is currently working on a third release which has been delayed due to the pandemic. Her music has been heard on the BBC and she was a finalist in the 12th annual International Unisong Contest in the song and performance category.
Though she started her career in jingles, it is as a singer-songwriter that Woloshin has truly distinguished herself. Her personal appearances have reached from the college circuit to gigs in her hometown of NYC at the famous Knitting Factory and as part of the “Battery Park Concert Series” to performances at the Bluebird Café in Nashville. Ellen has opened for such artists as Laura Nyro, Bill Stains and Jim Dawson.
Possessing an easy-listening soft as silk warm as toast alto voice, her songs are personal yet universal (with a hint of women songwriters from the past) giving them a welcome freshness. Her broad range of live and recording experience and early work in jingles has created a strong professional foundation.
