Born in Kristianstad, a small town in the south of Sweden, Ella Tiritiello was raised by music lovers on a potent diet of powerhouses including the likes of Diana Ross, Adele and Sia. “I loved to sing their songs in my room, but I never wanted anyone to hear, mostly because of my stage fright. I couldn’t see myself standing in front of people and singing.”
Today, Ella stands as a young artist who’s already overcome her biggest fear. In 2021 Ella was selected by the Tim Bergling Foundation (Avicii’s father) to sing, perform and release Avicii’s “For A Better Day” alongside the Royal Stockholm Philharmonic Orchestra, she rose to the challenge and performed to 16,000 people. A huge undertaking for any artist, let alone a 14-year-old with stage fright.
Her effortless vocal talents and authentic stage presence instantly won over the crowd as her confidence blossomed before their eyes.
Despite only just turning 16, Tiritiello has already put herself firmly on the map. With her debut single “Say Something” already at over a quarter of a million streams and a knock-out live performance at the prestigious ‘Brilliant Minds’, this year has already been a big one for the rising teenager.
After impressing with her debut single earlier this year, the 16-year-old has returned with her honest and straight-arrowed follow-up single, “Take It Personal.”
“Take it Personal” comes as a reminder that honesty is always the best policy. Sharing more Ella explained: “The inspiration came from how you often say to people to not take it personally and ‘it’s not you, it’s me,’ but maybe sometimes it’s better to just keep it straight.“
