Over the years, Ela Stiles has built a name for herself as an adept musician in Sydney’s often strange and varied music scene. Moving beyond her work in local favourites Songs, she became a driving force in Melbourne outfit Bushwalking, releasing two records with the band while still based in Sydney and working on numerous projects.

Her debut solo album is available on Fire Records outside of Australia now!

There’s a mountain-spring purity and soaring strength in her voice that invites comparisons with Sandy Denny and Maddy Prior Uncut
