Description

ABOUT THE ARTIST:

From Menopause to Marijuana! …Peace to Politics! …Poignant to Provocative! …

Ellen Bukstel writes and sings about it all! This type of happy-sad, life-embracing, fear-overcoming emotional schizophrenia truly captures the spirit of modern independent music making—whatever the artist feels in that moment, she shares…and whatever else Ellen is, she’s not shy about it. For Bukstel, music is a way of expressing her joys, her sorrows, and her passions —bringing her listeners to tears and laughter and sometimes both at the same time.

Renowned as an activist who puts her passions to song, Ellen has been commissioned to write songs and produced numerous multiple award winning fundraising music videos which have collectively helped to raise almost one hundred million dollars since 2006 and are being used as tools to raise awareness of important social issues such as Housing the Homeless, Assistance Victims of Domestic Violence, Human Rights and care for Children with wide spectrum Autism and Elderly with Cerebral Deterioration.

Ellen expresses her imagination with her beautiful voice, guitar, and keyboard. Her award-winning songs chronicle the joys and sorrows of a colorful tapestry still being woven…She conveys love and a depth of concern for the ever-increasing threats to our world and to our own individual rights. All this is related to the audience through a brave, though the humorous and earthy connection between the world of musical performance and that of the social “bard” or “Troubadour” from which the most powerful and relevant strand of folk music derives its roots. It’s not an act. It’s real.
