It’s been three years since bass player and vocalist Ellen Andrea Wang released her critically acclaimed debut album Diving.
Newly signed to Jazzland Recordings she will release her second album «Blank Out» on 15th September.
Wang has never been afraid of mixing and blending genres in new and unprecedented ways. Her music has a tasteful blend of jazz and pop elements, and she manages to balance the lyrical with the rough, the acoustic with the electric and creating an urban unique sound. Wang’s band includes some of Norway’s most talented musicians; Andreas Ulvo on keys and Erland Dahlen on drums. Short time after her solo debut Wang joined the band of legendary drummer Manu Katché (Sting, Peter Gabriel, Joni Mitchell). The the last year Wang has also played with artist as Sting and Marilyn Mazur beside her own bands (Pixel, EAW)
The Guardian mentioned Wang as one of the five best young female jazz musicians.
«A commanding presence in any ensemble she plays in, her soft tone and vocal precision are always counterbalanced with heavy and assertive grooves from her double-bass, interlocking with drummers, jazz, pop and groove alike.»
