Local Artist Spotlight: Ella Jet

Ella Jet

If you’ve been to Ruby’s Elixir on a Saturday night between 6:30 and 9:30, you may have had the pleasure of listening to the spellbinding voice of St. Pete native, Ella Jet. Despite being just 18 years old, her self-written songs coupled with her folk rock vibe sound more like the wise words of an old soul.

In 2014 Jet was selected into the prestigious Grammy Museum’s Music Revolution Project and already she’s opened for National Acts: We The Kings, Vonda Shepard, Emily Kinney, In The Valley Below, The Prettiots, and Lovedrug. She’s also played support at Ruth Eckerd Hall for Matchbox Twenty’s Rob Thomas and her musical hero Bob Dylan.

Her debut CD “Black Wave Diary” will be released sometime this year and she’s formed a new band called Daydream that will be backing her as she performs the songs off of her new album. In her own words, “I like my music to show the simple beauty of a stunted sunflower growing up through the cracks of this crazy messed up world”.

Catch her Thursday, April 6th at The Ringside Cafe and Thursday, April 20th at The Ale & The Witch or Saturdays solo at Ruby’s Elixir from 6:30 to 9:30 p.m.
