Review: Ellisa Sun Sings Us a Fairytale with New Single "Once Upon A Time"

Ellisa Sun cuts her heart out and leaves it on the stage, which is why she never wears white.

Originally from Los Angeles, she decided to hit the road in 2018 and embarked on her nationwide Dreamboat tour, playing 170 shows in 365 days while living in a 30-foot Winnebago. After the tour, Ellisa relocated to Nashville, Tennessee.

Inspired primarily by R&B, soul, jazz, and bossa nova, Ellisa’s music is a unique blend of genres that creates a textured sound with raw, heartfelt lyricism. Ellisa’s music can be heard on the Sony Pictures Television show L.A.’s Finest, starring Gabrielle Union and Jessica Alba and the Hulu show Dollface, starring Kat Dennings and Brenda Song. Her song “Evening” was recently featured in the show Kung Fu on the CW.

Ellisa launched a wildly successful crowdfunding campaign last year with ifundwomen and successfully raised $15,000 to support her upcoming record, which will feature 8 original songs and a team of Nashville’s finest musicians, producers and songwriters.

Ellisa recently released her new, jazzy single "Once Upon A Time." With enchanting lyrics like I’ve been counting sheep, but I can't sleep, you always creep into my dreams, "Once Upon A Time" is a lyrical fairy tale listeners are sure to fall in love with.

Ellisa's voice is warm and captivating, almost like a warm blanket on a cold night. Her vocals hug our ears, allowing us to escape reality - even just for a few minutes. We highly recommend adding "Once Upon A Time" to your current playlists!
