Ellen Whitt is a singer/songwriter from the Czech Republic with a sound, style and a sophistication which belie her young age.

“Never Stopped Dying” is the latest single from Ellen Whitt, released worldwide to all major streaming services on July 3, 2021. With a sound that lands somewhere between Indie-Folk and Alt-Country, the singer delivers a heartbreaker of a breakup song. Ellen strums her acoustic guitar and sings with a confident tone, lyrical maturity and depth of soul that would be remarkable for a singer of any age. The song’s title is reference to a vase of flowers which serve as a metaphor for the death of her affection for a philandering lover.
The recording pairs the natural beauty of Ellen Whitt’s vocal with an economical and expertly executed organic ensemble of guitar, bass and drums. The writing and production brings to mind the pioneering classic Americana of early Emmylou Harris and Gram Parsons. It’s a beautifully understated sound that sets the perfect stage and leaves plenty of room for Ellen’s soulful Country tone and poetic lyrics.
