Ella Vos is an Angeleno tried and true, a magnificent mother, and a vocalist who has fueled some of your favorite Indie Pop and Electronic records whether you know it or not.
After the release of her Kaskade collaboration, Ella allowed us to pick her mind and get the scoop on a few of her favorite things…
Favorite thing that came of 2020
In 2020, so many favorite things came about! First, I fell in love and got married, I released my second album, I wrote most of my upcoming third album, I went on 2 cross country camping trips, and learned how to rock climb.
Favorite part of working with Kaskade
Hearing him take a song from a simple guitar rhythm and beat to the masterpiece he created was truly incredible; he’s so freaking talented.
Favorite Electronic act of the last decade
Daft Punk, hands down, what else is there to say.
Favorite record to listen to on vinyl
James Blake’s “James Blake” is otherworldly on vinyl. My 5 year old agrees.
Favorite self-care activity/product
“Coffee Bath”! It’s not what it sounds like, I’m not bathing in coffee…Coffee bath is a morning bath while drinking coffee and listening to the news or a podcast.
Favorite thing about LA
The weather, by far, I don’t think I could live anywhere else in the world because the weather is just too good.
Favorite thing to complain about
Oddly enough, my favorite thing to complain about is the weather. I know it’s so stupid, because it’s SO NICE here, but I still love to say “it’s SO HOT” or “it’s SO COLD”. So LA of me I guess. 😉
Favorite small business to support
My best friend’s MOST CUTEST shop in Eagle Rock and Silverlake.
Favorite piece of recording/studio equipment
Oh where to begin, I guess if I have to pick one I’d say my Wurlitzer! It almost always inspires a song out of me.
Favorite thing that keeps you sane at home
On Disco Thursday nights, me and my husband have a dance party and jam in the studio and usually end up making some really fun songs.
Favorite lyric you’ve ever written
“Everytime I try to run from my mistakes, they catch up.”
It’s so honest and was such an effortless statement to write.
Favorite book you’ve read recently
I read Jeff Tweedy’s “How to Write One Song” at the beginning of this year and it was really refreshing to read about someone else’s creative process.
Favorite movie to rewatch
It’s not my favorite movie of all time but my go-to movie if nothing else looks interesting is Dumb and Dumber. It’s like comfort food for me.
Favorite DJ to see live
Favorite live performance you’ve done
I played Bonanza Music Festival in Utah one summer and the crowd was SO AMAZING. I wore this beautiful red kimono…I remember getting on stage and seeing bubbles floating in the air and everything was magical feeling and everyone was singing along to every song…it gave me goosebumps.
