Ella Fence has signed a world wide management deal with UK’s Rugged Management, continuing her epic rise on the back of her debut EP.
Director of Rugged Management, Phil Pickett contacted Ella shortly after the release of EP Wanderlust. Ella says she came to Phil’s attenention through the record’s producer Dan Swift who “showed the EP to Phil at a music conference in Cannes, France called MIDEM.”
“What made him really excited about the project though, was the Unknown Water film clip that local company Double Deuce produced,” Ella said. “I couldn’t be more grateful for those guys.”
“This year has been so incredibly empowering and freeing,” Ella said, reflecting on 2015 to date.
“I’m so overwhelmed by the support of the Gold Coast community and music industry. It’s a network of people who acknowledge that we’re all on our own journey and genuinely want to help each other, absolutely magic.”
After the EP’s official launch party at the Soundlounge in August, Ella will head back to the UK to reunite with Dan Swift and start work on her new EP.
The Gold Coast launch party for Wanderlust takes place at The Soundlounge on Friday 14 August on the Gold Coast.
