Ellen Woloshin shares the ballads of ‘Pop Torch’


Growing up studying piano and performing in choirs, Ellen Woloshin moved away from a career in classical music, instead falling into the family business of jingle writing, working with multiple brands and building a profession. Her career then moved toward performing and songwriting, emerging as one half of the duo Woloshin & Griffin. Alongside this and a developing solo career, Ellen has written for artists like Dionne Warwick, LaToya Jackson, and Ben Vereen, as well as appearing on radio throughout the UK, and performing across the US.

Ellen Woloshin‘s third album is ‘Pop Torch’, providing fans with another graceful evening of jazz standards, original music and fabulous arrangements. Reimagining tracks made famous by the likes of Bing Crosby, and Fred Astaire and taking a jazz rendition of music from Keith Whitley and America. This approach to creating natural-feeling pop ballads with a heavy dose of nostalgia is a testament to Ellen’s songwriting ability, able to morph these sounds into totally different contexts that feel as though they are a match made in heaven. Alongside a band comprised of adaptive acoustic guitar, rich piano and effortless grooves of a double bass, Ellen makes her presence known within each arrangement, delivering spellbinding vocals whether it’s a heartfelt, slow outpour or a fast-paced bounce.

Ellen explains the album further, adding, ”If you take a bunch of disparate beads and string them together to make a necklace, what would the finished product look like? That’s the concept behind this album. I took songs from various genres and decades, some of my own, some by others, with the hope that in the end, that necklace would come together as a unique statement of its own. I hope you enjoy the result!”
