Musician

Ellen Honert

Ellen Honert, a native of the Netherlands, always knew she would be a singer. She studied piano early on and then jazz voice at the Dutch Conservatory of Music but dropped out because she felt she was losing her personal voice. Cycling home from a Tuck and Patti concert in Amsterdam, she ran into the American musicians on a canal and they invited her to a jazz camp in California. Honert used this opportunity to launch her musical career in the US. After a stint of gospel singing at Glide Church in San Francisco, Honert joined V Soul, a group of singers from Glide, which toured the Netherlands. In 2006 Ellen teamed up with renowned Bay Area producer Frank Martin, who invited a host of stellar musicians, including Tuck and Patti, to record "Breath of the Soul," Ellen's first CD

Ellen Honert: Hummingville

Read "Hummingville" reviewed by C. Michael Bailey

Ellen Honert: Breath of the Soul

Read "Breath of the Soul" reviewed by Jim Santella


The contemporary refrains from vocalist Ellen Honert on Breath of the Soul run smooth and sleek, and with a distinctive eloquence. She favors smooth jazz with a soulful message that comes from within.

Ellen Honert: Breath of the Soul

Read "Breath of the Soul" reviewed by C. Michael Bailey


Ellen Honert possesses a perfectly balanced alto voice that easily modulates between the many highs and lows she employs in her singing--and Breath of the Soul requires much of this from her. Softly Latin in overall character and instrumentation, this music provides a humid and languid blanket for Honert's sensual craft. In addition to her vocal ...
