S1 Ep 5: Ellie Rowsell
This week i sit down with the lead singer of Wolf Alice, legend Ellie Rowsell. We spoke about her fronting one of my favourite rock bands and get to know how her journey through music. We hung out in the bands studio and used boxes of Van’s they had recently been gifted to balance the mic’s on. Her choices were meaningful and entirely unpredictable which was a testament to her taste and range in creativity. Its a very cool and inspiring episode which will leave you wanting to dive into to all her albums and rec’s.
