Artist information:

Ella Hohnen-Ford

Ella’s open ears and interest in a broad variety of styles has produced an unorthodox and genre-defying approach to writing and interpreting music. She is drawn to redefining the role of vocalist and narrator, blending her skills as an improviser and storyteller in her music.

Born and raised in London, Ella is one of the few singers to graduate from the Royal Academy of Music Jazz course and did so with First Class honours in 2020.

Throughout the pandemic, she has continued to create musical opportunities and seek out inspiration. She hosts a weekly livestream gig to her Youtube channel and has built an online community of thousands.

Freddie Benedict

Freddie’s voice has brought him many opportunities. He’s recorded for Spectre, Maradona and Johnny English 3, acted in The Alltogether with Martin Freeman, played Danny in Grease and Sky in Guys and Dolls. He’s a leading animation voice in Azur and Asmar and Planet 51. As a choral scholar at Kings College London, Trinity Head Chorister and with Trinity Boys’ Choir, he has sung at the Royal Albert Hall, the Royal Opera House and Glyndebourne, as well as churches and cathedrals all over the UK, Italy, Germany, Nigeria and Poland.

As a soloist, he sang 1st Boy in The Magic Flute three times, Boy in Elijah at the Royal Festival Hall and Cobweb in A Midsummer Night’s Dream in Baugé, as well as Lloyd Webber’s Requiem in Krakow. Gigs with Trinity Big Band, Kings Big Band and his own jazz quintet, London Red, have included the Spice of Life, the Hideaway, Jazz After Dark and Ronnie Scott’s. He regularly sells out Crazy Coqs, Piccadilly. He studied classical singing at the Katarina Gurska Conservatoire in Madrid and his current teacher is Bertie Rice. He is now studying for a master’s degree in jazz singing at the Guildhall School of Music and Drama. In the past, he has added his baritone and beatboxing talents to acapella group, All the King’s Men, who were nominated for 4 CARAs and has now joined NoVI, whose success as European ICCA champions took them to Carnegie Hall in 2017. As a singer with NYJO, he has been delighted to perform for HRH Prince Edward on two occasions.


Johatsu’s music takes inspiration from contemporary composers like Nils Framh, Olafur Arnalds, Max Cooper, and Thom Yorke, to create their own brand of ambient and ethereal piano pieces
