Get to Know Addison Ella!

Where are you located now and where are you originally from? I am located in Houston, Texas and that is where I am originally from! Born and raised.

Who has been your greatest influence? That’s such a hard question because I have so many influences in my life, but I would have to say that my parents have always been such support for me as well as my best friend, boyfriend, siblings, and many other people who are close to me that encourage me to pursue what I am passionate about and always have my back. I also take great inspiration from my favorite sing/songwriters, actresses, and models.

What is your latest and greatest? I released my first single Touch The Ocean through Horizontal Trees Music on July 31st and since then I have been songwriting, sharing my voice on social media, and working on new songs coming soon!

Are you performing LIVE soon? I have done a few small scale live performances but I am definitely open to the idea of doing larger scale live performances! They will for sure be a part of my near future as an artist.

What are you most looking forward to in 2022? I am looking forward to new music, new opportunities, and my growth as a singer and songwriter. I also act and model outside of music so I’m hoping for more opportunities with that as well!

How did you deal with all the changes in the past two years that the music industry has gone through? Personally I am new to actually being a recording artist so I haven’t had to deal with any changes in the music industry, but I expect to experience and get through changes and obstacles in the future as best as I can!

What would you say to your younger self if you could? I would say to have courage and just go for it because you never know what opportunity might come your way! I would say this because I started doing covers on my Youtube Channel starting in May 2020 which led to Horizontal Trees reaching out to me about a song they had already written that they thought would be perfect for me to record and release! Soon after we recorded it I took a trip up to Maine, filmed an official music video, and now I can call myself an official artist. Life is so crazy awesome and I am so grateful for everything I have been given and experienced thus far!

On a scale from ONE to TEN, how driven are you? Honestly I would say around nine or ten because I’ve always been the type of person to really go for whatever it is I have my mind set to doing. I’ve always been a firm believer in the phrase “you get for what you work for and not what you wish for”. I think it’s important to dream, but it’s also important to be realistic and realize how much work it takes to get you where you wish to be. I like to apply this to all aspects of my life and really put in the effort!

When you're not feeling motivated how do you get back on track? I definitely try to keep a positive mindset and be patient with myself. It can be hard because I’m a struggling perfectionist, but I have support from amazing people in my life that keep me afloat when I feel myself start to sink! Usually I first try and take some time to mentally reset for the sake of my happiness and mental health, and then I try and picture what it is I’m working towards and sometimes take inspiration from successful individuals that I admire!

How much do you believe LUCK plays a role in success? As a starting musician, I know that luck plays a huge role in the music industry, but I’m a firm believer in hard work being essential to reaching your dreams. I’m not sure what the future has in store for me but I’m going to keep dreaming, keep working, keep doing the things I love, and stay strong!

How can we stay up to date with you? I plan to sing, act, and model for a long time and I’m always active on my social media pages so that’s how you can always keep up with me and what I’m doing! I also do my best to show a lot of the stuff that goes on behind the scenes in my life to really give people insight into what it’s really like being a beginning artist on top of college, modeling, and acting.
