About Jamie Elless

Jamie Ava Elless (b.1998) is an interdisciplinary composer, performer and designer from Birmingham, currently based in London. She draws inspiration from medieval European music, worldwide folk traditions, ambient and drone music, sonic storytelling, and queer liberation politics.

Recently her music has been workshopped and performed by: Britten Sinfonia; Riot Ensemble; Psappha; Trinity Laban Symphony Orchestra; Terra Invisus; Delia Stevens; James Banner; Steph Clark; and Rebecca Burden. Jamie completed her BA and MRes degrees in Music at the University of Nottingham, studying as a Henry Thomas Mitchell vocal practice scholar under the supervision of Elizabeth Kelly and Duncan MacLeod.
