My name is Ella Capobianco and I’m 21 years old. 2020, I completed a Bachelor of Performance from the University of Wollongong. As this degree was focused on theatre and acting, I have an immense appreciation for music. Growing up, I listened to soul & R&B which has resulted in Mary J.Blige, Angie Stone, and Lauryn Hill being artists I love and adore. For me, music ignites this elusive energy whether I’m singing or songwriting. Singing has been my focus for many years but during quarantine, writing became my platform to escape which was something incredibly special and meaningful to have experienced. www.facebook.com/gemmanavamusic
