Eleanor Rose "Ella" Edmondson (born 22 January 1986)[citation needed] is an English singer-songwriter. Her primary instrument is the guitar although she can also play the piano.[1]

Early life

Eleanor Rose Edmondson is the eldest of three daughters of comedians Ade Edmondson and Jennifer Saunders. She has two younger sisters, Beatrice and Freya.[2] The majority of Edmondson's childhood was spent in Richmond before her family relocated to Devon.[3] She attended Exeter School[4] where she wrote songs as part of her music GCSE.[5]


Edmondson became a fan of death metal because it was the only music that her father didn't like.[3] She went through a goth phase as a teenager and became a satanist. She worked as a snowboarding instructor in Canada, a barmaid and a painter and decorator before deciding to focus on music full-time[2][3] after being encouraged by her father. She "got the bug" after supporting Jools Holland at the Plymouth Pavilions.[6]

She received her first guitar as a Christmas present from her father and taught herself to play by copying him.[3] Her first gig was at 16 supporting Thousand Natural Shocks in Exeter.[7] She made an appearance in an episode of her mother's sitcom Jam and Jerusalem in 2006 performing "Breathe".[8] In 2007, she released her first EP, Blame Amy,[9] and appeared on the compilation Folk Rising.[10] Her debut album, Hold Your Horses, was released on 16 February 2009,[8] on her father's Monsoon record label.[6]

In 2010, she toured as the supporting act to her father's punk-inspired folk act The Bad Shepherds.

Personal life

Edmondson married Dan Furlong on 30 September 2010 and together they have three children.[11][12]
