EllaHarp

Half Moon Bay, California

An instrument like the harp doesn’t exactly inspire imagery of driving bass lines and mainstream appeal, and that’s what San Francisco Bay Area based harpist, singer/songwriter Ella Dawn Jenkins, aka EllaHarp is working to change.

Armed with a fresh take on contemporary blues, the musical lineage of composer/arranger Gordon Jenkins, and a unique instrument she designed for the purpose, EllaHarp is pushing the harp out of type-cast genre constraints and doing things differently.

Since the independent release of her 2018 album (‘Who Asked You Back’, released 2.3.18), EllaHarp has toured 7 states with more than 90 live performances, from Bay Area festivals and radio to Irish pubs in Honolulu to ‘The Bitter End’ in New York City to opening for Grammy winning singer Mya at ‘Music Box’ in San Diego.
