Ellen Braun is making herself known on the Canadian indie folk music beat, both as a solo act and with her band, Trundled.
Her song, “Inchoate”, made it to the top 100 in CBC’s 2018 Searchlight; she attended two prestigious residencies in 2018 and 2019 at the Banff Centre for Arts and Creativity; she travels to Nashville regularly to work, co-write, and record with music industry legends (including Beth Nielsen Chapman, Verlon Thompson, and Byron Hill); her new single is featured in award-winning Alberta filmmaker, Leanne Allison’s, wolverine documentary, "Chasing a Trace"; and in June 2019, she recorded a full-length Trundled album, "High Water" (currently being released) with acclaimed and multi award-winning producer, Daniel Ledwell.
She has performed live on the radio for CKUA (an outdoor broadcast, live on stage at the 2019 Canmore Folk Festival); on CBC radio (including several interviews on the Homestretch with Doug Dirks as well as with Russel Bowers on Daybreak Alberta); Canmore's local radio station (including a local sing-along of Ellen's song "Okay" at the beginning of the pandemic, which was taught to the community and broadcast for people to sing along out their windows and off their front porches), Mountain FM; and live performances on CJSW, the University of Calgary campus radio.
Ellen has a powerful voice and a big heart and she consistently connects with audiences of all kinds.
