Hailing from the San Francisco Bay, singer/songwriter Ella Dawn Jenkins creates melodic folk-pop via the project EllaHarp. Jenkins takes pride in a DIY approach, handling songwriting and production duties — in addition to designing her own harp, clothing, and jewelry. The first single from EllaHarp’s sophomore album of the same name, “Screaming Into the Void” is a great introduction to the artist’s lushly melodic sound. Minimalist click-laden percussion accompanies a serene harp sound and Jenkins’ calming vocals. Following up her debut album Who Asked You Back, which reached #4 and #2 on Roots Music Reporter Top 50 Folk and Top 50 Contemporary Folk Album Charts, EllaHarp seems likely to continue the momentum with sophomore album Screaming Into the Void.
“Screaming Into the Void” and other memorable tracks from this month can also be streamed on the updating Obscure Sound’s ‘Best of February 2020’ Spotify playlist.
