Ego Ella May is a British-Nigerian award winning singer-songwriter. The critically acclaimed artist has an all-encompassing love of music, which she channels into her own genre blending R&B, neo-soul and contemporary jazz compositions.

At the heart of Ego’s writing is a deep passion and respect for jazz. Touching on her writing process and her connection to her craft, she explains: “Everyone’s ears are so different, so I let them be the judge, but the root of it all is jazz. I write what’s on my mind, or if I have a burning desire to write.  My favourite quote is “you have to read, to write” so I spend a lot of time reading novels, poetry and books about my history”. Incredibly honest self-penned, personal and observational lyrics are laced with tales of self-healing, protest, love and loss, global issues and more.

Following a win at the 2021 JAZZ FM Awards for Best Vocalist, several features and writing credits for the likes of Ari Lennox, Theo Croker, Kojey Radical as well as a sold out headline UK tour, Ego also released 3 parts of her critically acclaimed EP series - FIELDNOTES and received a 5 star review in the Telegraph newspaper.
