Ellen Demos

I was born in Boston Massachusettes. My early education included formal training in voice and classical piano. In my early twenties I found I had more interest in blues and jazz then the classics and began working with various jazz and ethnic ensembles in the Boston area. This included exposure to Indian music both classical and fusion and African drumming and dance. I later became interested in Brazilian music and worked in the New England area fusing jazz and Brazilian influences. I also worked in improvisational theater at that time. In 1979 I moved to Los Angeles and continued studies in vocal technique, composition and arranging. During this time I was also active in the recording industry doing commercial work and private projects. I also performed with big bands and small ensenmbles and formed the Brazilian band “Pastoria” with saxophonist Mike Mcmullen. It was via this liason that I made the move to Europe.
