Ellaree Simmons and Her Music

Tell us about yourself and your music

I am an artist who writes from experience, therefore my songs are personal. I like to write from my heart that way people can get to know me through my music.

Talk to us more about your latest release

My latest release called Weathered the Storm is an EP based off of my current relationship. I wrote these songs based on my love for the man in my life. Most are R&B, there’s a pop song on there and even one gospel song!


What inspired you to write this release?

What inspired me to write this release is the emotional feelings I have for my man. He in turn inspired me to do this release just not for him but for me as well, to do something I had never done which was to share my music with the world.  It is a great feeling!

Describe the writing and recording process

The writing came pretty easy, I never really have a problem coming up with a song. Since I am also a poet it just flows. The recording process was a little bit more challenging because I wanted the sound to be just right.

Any plans to release a video?



Any plans to hit the road?

No, I do not have any upcoming plans to hit the road but I’m hoping in the near future that something will come up.

As an indie artist, how do you brand yourself and your music to stand out from the rest of the artists out there?

As an Indie Artist, I stand out from the rest by my unique voice. It’s very different and distinct. It is not your typical R&B voice you hear on the radio every day.

Who have you been listening to lately?

I have been listening to Beyoncé, Faith Evans, and Keyshia Cole

Who are your biggest influences?

Beyoncé definitely because I like that she’s just being herself. I also like Fantasia because like me she can sing both gospel and R&B which is something I enjoy doing. Actually I started out singing gospel then switched over to R&B. I switched over when I was inspired to write love songs to my man.

Tell us about your passions

My passion is God first, my man, singing and writing poetry and books. I also have a poetry book out on Amazon called Inspirational Poems and an autobiography on there as well entitled Quiet Storms in the Walls.

What else is happening next in your world?

What is happening next in my world is that I’m currently working on releasing a double album this year. One CD will be gospel and the other R&B. The gospel CD is song I’ve written over the years previously. The R&B songs on the album will be from last year and this year.
