About Ellisa Hartman

Campbell River, Canada

Ellisa Hartman is a multi-talented young performing artist/musician ready to leap into a high-profile role in the Canadian and international music scene. Her artistic presence, unique voicing and instrumental styles enable her to lead or support in many genres, always adding ‘that certain feel’ to the moment. At 23, she has written a portfolio of significant songs that would be the envy of many established musicians. Drawing on the spirits of Lightfoot, Joni Mitchell and Sarah McLaughlin, her music moves all who hear it.

Arising from a musical family, her singing and performing started at age 6 and currently includes 100’s of stage performance in community theatre, music venues and clubs. Her vocal prowess is enhanced by experience in range of instruments with a unique form of finger-style acoustic guitar figuring prominently. Her abilities to blend moments of unorthodox time signature into her songs and covers make musical points that few can match.

Raised on the west coast, her other interests centre around the ocean, She is a master diver and lover of all things marine. Her marine photographs display an empathy and depth of understanding that is reflected in her music and world awareness. This awareness has grown through extensive solo travel in some of the challenged areas of the globe, and yet a sense of fun and joi de vivre permeates her music.

Supported by a successful business team, her current aspirations are focussed on building networks and alliances to help her musical passion move into a career, seeking cooperative projects that allow the music to become a lifestyle and enhance her life and those of the people around her.
Ellisa Hartman opens this Tidings concert night with a set of guitar-based songs that soulfully blend blues, jazz and acoustic sounds - fitting, as she cites among her varied influences Eva Cassidy, Tracy Chapman, Etta James, Ella Fitzgerald, Bonnie Raitt, Billie Holiday, and Jann Arden.

"Ellisa Hartman is a highly promising young Victoria singer-songwriter. Her strengths include a gift for vocal phrasing and an ability to write melodic, hook-laden songs with thoughtful introspective lyrics. Fans of Sarah McLachlan and Chantal Kreviazuk will easily succumb to her charm and artistry," says Adrian Chamberlain (Victoria Times Colonist).
