Ellen Bonte’s songs mirror a wandering soul. The musician finds melodies while travelling and in the encounter. Since her first self-published record in 2002 the music has never left her.

On the boards

In 2009, she composes integrally the music for a theatre production, Jack and Jill by Jane Martin, which she then plays live during the performances in Münster and Dortmund.

Simplicity, subtlety, optimism

Intimate, tinged with humour, her music displays the absurdities of today in a subtle way and a claimed naivety. A remarkable pen, at the same time simple and the total opposite of simplification. A beautiful sonorous voice whose colour varies within a trilingual register. Her credo: the state of the contemporary world doesn’t offer us the luxury of being pessimistic.
