Asa part of our series about rising music stars, I had the distinct pleasure of interviewing British singer-songwriter Ella Rosa. With a knack for confessional, honest, and optimistic storytelling, Ella’s new single “Good Times” showcases Ella’s ability to interweave her personal, intimate moments to create music that is both universal and evocative.

Bridging pop and R&B, therapeutic, optimistic lyricism, and an effervescent melody, “Good Times” further demonstrates what everyone has learned about Ella: she has a sheer talent for crafting music that’s timeless yet undeniably relevant. Listen to “Good Times” here:

Thank you so much for joining us in this interview series! Can you tell us the story of how you grew up?

Ofcourse. Thank you for having me. My upbringing is kind of a long story, so I will try to keep it short…I grew up in Reading, England, until I moved to New York City and started studying Opera. I moved back to London and stayed there for 3 years before moving to Los Angeles to become a full-time artist.

Can you share a story with us about what brought you to this specific career path?

I have always wanted to be involved in music in some capacity and realized that performing fueled me. When I started studying Opera, it fed my hunger for performance, but I started becoming curious about collaboration and songwriting which lead me to studio work and the pop world…And here I am!

Can you tell us the most interesting story that happened to you since you began your career?

When I was younger, I always told my friends I was going to move to LA and be on The Hills. And just a couple of months ago, my song was aired on the most recent Hills episode!…full circle moment!

Can you share a story about the funniest mistake you made when you were first starting? Can you tell us what lesson you learned from that?

When I first started performing, I thought it would be a sexy idea to wear extremely tall Stilettos for a show. Little did I know I would later roll my ankle on stage in the middle of one of my songs. The takeaway from this exciting accident…I am only wearing platforms on stage, at most.

What are some of the most interesting or exciting projects you are working on now?

I am working on a new EP that is reminiscent of old UK Drum and Bass music. I think it is the most exciting project I have worked on yet. I am really excited to see how it makes everyone feel.

We are very interested in diversity in the entertainment industry. Can you share three reasons with our readers about why you think it’s important to have diversity represented in film and television? How can that potentially affect our culture?

I think that entertainment is a reflection of contemporary culture. And having a representation of diverse religion, race, and ethnicity, only deepens our understanding of various people and values.

What are your “5 things I wish someone told me when I first started” and why. Please share a story or example for each.

1) Be kind, but firm — As a female in a male-dominated industry, I found it very challenging to ask for things that I deserved, until a mentor of mine demonstrated a very gracious and effective way of doing it.

2) Maintain Loyalty — I was very close with a childhood friend who entered into the music industry with ill intentions and used people as stepping stones instead of collaborating with them with the intention of mutual growth. After being involved in this, I really caught “The Ick,” and learned to steer clear of this type of behavior.

3) Stay Curious — Keep your mind wide open to new experiences, and always continue searching and developing your understanding of what is alluring and intriguing to you. In high school, I was babysitting this child and he would always ask the question, “Why?!” And it always got on my nerves. But I quickly realized that his curiosity always led him to a very interesting insight, and opportunity to learn something new.

4) No goal is too lofty — While this sounds cliche, it is really incredible what can unfold when you do not shut down your own ideas. A book that helped me realize this is “Change Your Mind, Change Your Life.” It provides insight into the world of neuroscience and the human brain! I recommend this to everyone!!!

5) Create To-Do Lists of achievable, action-oriented items — I used to get super overwhelmed and anxious about the endless things that needed to be done. And the minute I started writing things down, it not only gave me a sense of accomplishment, but it helped me stay accountable and prioritize the most important things in my life.

Which tips would you recommend to your colleagues in your industry to help them to thrive and not “burn out”?

Preparation, Organization, and Steadfastness. Know what you want, understand the path that will lead you there, and EXECUTE.

You are a person of enormous influence. If you could inspire a movement that would bring the most amount of good to the most amount of people, what would that be? You never know what your idea can trigger. 🙂


None of us are able to achieve success without some help along the way. Is there a particular person who you are grateful towards who helped get you to where you are? Can you share a story about that?

My Grandparents have given me a world of knowledge and the ability to be unconditionally myself, without wavering to the ideas of others.

Can you please give us your favorite “Life Lesson Quote”? Can you share how that was relevant to you in your life?

“Do not act for the fruits of action.”

Do things because you want to. Not because of what you can get out of it.

Is there a person in the world, or in the US whom you would love to have a private breakfast or lunch with, and why? He or she might just see this, especially if we tag them. 🙂

NAI PALM. Pleeeeeeease!!!! Pretty Please will you have private breakfast or lunch with me?!
