Who Me

Who I Am

More often than not, it’s the simple things in life that make us happy. Long walks on the beach, waltzing through the rain on a warm afternoon, a cup of coffee in a quaint loft overseeing the big city. Here you’ll find moments of bliss, ones that leave their imprint for years to come and stay beneath our skin for a lifetime. But as with all things in nature, even the simplest of forms have layers of complexity. And singer-songwriter Ellen Once Again is about capturing that essence, and preserving the moment so it can be relived over and over. Based in Dallas, Ellen Hinton, better known by her stage name Ellen Once Again, was introduced to music in early childhood. “I grew up in a musical family,” she explains. “We sang at church, at home, in the car – so from a very young age I knew it was something that I wanted to do.” Different from most kids, Ellen preferred tinkering on the piano than playing outside, and soon developed a love for musicians like Whitney Houston, Stevie Wonder, Bill Withers, and Nina Simone. “I was really introverted growing up. I discovered that writing songs helped me express myself and my feelings.” Over the years Ellen has established a reputation for her pop-driven melodies, lively vocal performance, and Lily Allen-esque flair. Soulful, bubbly and vintage at heart, she’s released four EPs, and her songs have been featured on hit television shows like Glee, Dance Moms, and Mistresses, along with others such as Manhattan Love Story and Hand of God. In 2015, her song"I'm Feeling Lucky" was used in a Hershey's Kisses Deluxe commercial, and her song "Chasing Rainbows" was featured in a Friskies TV spot. She’s also been written about and praised in numerous publications, including PopSugar, The Fort Worth Star-Telegram, American Songwriter, as well as various tech blogs for her clever transposition of music and technology. Ellen’s latest single, “Love Myself,” was released in the summer of 2016, and she has plans to enter the studio soon to begin work on new material. “I want people to be encouraged and inspired when they listen to me,” she says. “It’s about spreading love through music.”

  • Love Myself Lyric Video


    Here’s a little video we made for Love Myself from my new EP. I wrote this song about wanting to do something great but feeling helpless with everything that’s going on in the world. It can be a daily struggle learning to love yourself, not hold yourself back because of fear, and to be brave enough to put yourself out there to love others not knowing what you’re gonna get in return. At the end of the day, I’m learning that love truly makes the world go round. I hope you like it!

    Ellen Once Again, ‘Love Myself’

    “I’m braver than I give myself credit for,” Ellen Once Again (the musical moniker of Dallas-based singer-songwriter Ellen Hinton) sings on the title track of her new EP, Love Myself. Although she’s speaking of mustering the courage to love herself so she can love others, her bravery also manifests itself in her unabashed embrace of the pop idiom, which is being forever twisted and warped by North Texas artists. Playing around with proven formulas is fine, but every so often, you want some handclaps, lilting layered harmonies and habit-forming melodic hooks, delivered by a vocalist in full control of her abilities. Ellen Once Again effortlessly delivers such pleasures repeatedly over the course of these four songs, which linger long after the final notes fade.
