It's not what you know, it's where you go. ELLA is Melbourne's new destination for good food and great drinks, local music and cool art.
This Friday lunchtime, Jess Locke will be stepping up to the mic to serenade you with her self-penned songs that draw you in.
Jess has come a long way since she taught herself how to play the guitar as a teen on the central coast of NSW. Her unconventional career path through low-fi home-made recordings and experimental gigs at venues including cemeteries and roundabouts has paid off. Big time.
In 2017, through her beguiling melodies and beautiful words, her album 'Universe' nabbed a four-star Rolling Stone review, a triple J feature album spot, a national tour and a performance at Falls. Critics and fans have fallen under her spell, and so have we.
Join us at ELLA, on the corner of Elizabeth and La Trobe in the CBD, for a wholesome afternoon of soulful live music and a bite to eat.
See you there, friends.
