Congratulations to Los Angeles singing lessons client, recording artist Lio Nicol on her very first music video, a new take on Leonard Cohen’s iconic tune Hallelujah. Her originals are great, as well! She took Skype online singing and voice lessons as well as in-person singing lessons in San Diego.

Taipei R&B singer and “Super Idol” Second-Place Winner Hawawa Yang (超偶3 楊蒨時) (links: China US) Congratulations to Ellie’s Mando-pop client Hawawa on winning second place in the popular Taiwan franchise TV talent show, Super Idol!

Congratulations to Recording Artist Aeode (link), pop/indie/folk A former singing lessons client in San Francisco who just got back from Los Angeles where she won TWO 2012 Artists In Music awardsAlbum of the Year and Best Folk/Acoustic Act.  She also won at the LA Music Awards for Adult Contemporary Artist of the Year.  I am proud of her and her accomplishments since the time we had singing lessons in San Francisco.  Visit her site to hear her music, see her videos and buy her music!

Congratulations to multi-platinum Recording Artist and International Super Star Prudence Liew (劉美君, 刘美君) (links: ChinaUS) Canto-pop …for her 2012 album Stolen Moments. She took singing lessons and voice coaching in San Francisco from Ellie and then went on to playing two sold-out shows at the Hong Kong Coliseum (13,000 seats) and being nominated and winning lots and lots of international awards and nominations including: CASH Golden Sail Music Awards (2008), Golden Horse Awards (2008), Hong Kong Film Awards (2009), Ming Pao Weekly Magazine Awards (2009), and Chinese Music Awards (2008, 2009 & 2010). Prudence is an awesome entertainer and a great person to boot and being her voice coach and giving her singing lessons in San Francisco was fun!

Congratulations to recording artist Lio Nicol (link), country/pop …who recently completed a 12 week course of private voice lessons in San Diego.  On her final session of vocal training, we got her hitting a high G (G6 – that’s the second G from the top of the piano for those of you watching at home ;)), in the so-called “whistle register”.  She’s definitely going to be nailing a Bb above that pretty soon!  I am super proud of her and her hard work toward relieving her vocal strain and increasing her range. She is continuing with online Skype singing & voice lessons with me from Montana and then hitting Los Angeles!

Congratulations to Neha Jiwrajka (link), jazz
After going on to finish grad school in jazz singing at New England Conservatory of Music, Neha has just completed her debut CD and it should be available soon!  Neha took singing lessons from me and then went on to make the audition for the post-grad programs in jazz voice at both the New England Conservatory of Music and the Manhattan School of Music.  Ellie’s students have a 96% admittance rate to the school, conservatory, or musical theater “part” of their choice after a year of study – this goes for classical, jazz, or musical theater.  I am very very proud of Neha, the San Francisco singing lessons and voice coaching we did, and her subsequent accomplishments. In fact, I just learned that she is now a Metropolitan Opera Guild Teaching Artist and is on her way to NYC! Nice!

Congratulations to student Steve Bulger and 145th Street Blues Band (link), hard-driving blues …on their recently-released 2nd album Where The Blues Live  (nominated by the 2012 San Diego Music Awards as Blues Album of the Year)! It’s a great CD!  The also WON the regional International Blues Challenge for Southern California and went on to compete in Memphis, TN against some of the best blues acts in the country!  Also see their gig page for upcoming blues shows (popup).  I have been Steve’s voice coach and given him singing lessons for a number of years in San Diego.

Ellie recently named one of the top voices in jazz …worldwide by French jazz writer and publisher. Maximillien J De Lafayette. I am amazingly flattered! Thanks so much!

Congratulations to Recording Artist Tracy Johnson in San Francisco (link), indie/pop/singer-songwriter …on her 2012 EP (sound samples) Sometimes Love is Fire which will be her 3rd release – or buy it on iTunes. Also, congrats on having her song “Old Enough To Know Better” on the TV show “Keeping Up With The Kardashians“.  Her 2nd cd “Dreams in Cold Weather” was featured on MTV’s “Real World Laguna Beach” and “Real World Denver” plus the film “Winter of Frozen Dreams”. She was the L.A. Music Awards‘ “Female Singer/Songwriter of the Year” and has also been a San Diego Music Award nominee for “Best Pop Album“.  I am really proud of Tracy – she is an awesome artist and person and I am so proud to have given her singing lessons and been her voice coach in San Diego!  ADDED: OK I can’t even keep up with Tracy’s song placements.  She just got a bunch more.  I dunno if it is through her manager who also managed Jewel or some other thing but her songs are reallllllly popular with TV and movie producers!  Check her FB page for the latest!
