Ella Muse is a Canadian 12 Piece Indie Band from Southern Ontario with roots in Smooth Jazz, Funk, Soul, Gospel, Motown, and Country. For over 16 years Ella Muse, formally “Xperience Muzic” has featured a dynamic cast of musicians and singers performing power ballad originals to well-loved cover tunes of some of the world’s most impressionable artists such as Leaonard Cohen, Joni Mitchell, Michael Jackson, Stevie Wonder, Tim McGraw and more. Performances are always family friendly and musically engaging with inspirational lyrics and fun and interactive audience engagement.
Ella Muse regularly performs at festivals, concerts, charity galas and local venues. The band derives the most value and excitement however through its co-venture and partnership with a community organization #SameTeam which inspires hope in impoverished and underprivileged neighborhoods and communities through the sharing of acoustic live music in concert.
The warm and unique sound of Ella Muse is attributed to Founder and keyboardist Lavelle Lindo who started performing solo violin at age 5. That initial love of music led to stints with the Victoria Youth Symphonic Orchestra and Canadian University Orchestra, as well as playing trumpet with a prestigious Concert Band in Alberta. After relocating to Toronto, Lavelle continued to hone his love for music through composition and performance, branching out to include Bass Guitar and Keyboard, as a musical director with various indpendent artists, choirs, and theatre productions.
The members of Ella Muse are talented and accomplished musicians, artists, and singers who have come together to promote a positive world community through the creation of sweet soulful music.
