About Me


Ellen Hinton, best known as Ellen Once Again, is a Texas-based singer-songwriter who has spent the last decade writing songs that include messages of hope, love, and self-worth.  In addition to her music career, Ellen is also a worship leader and a mother.

“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 more than playing outside. “I was really introverted growing up. I discovered that writing songs helped me express myself and my feelings.”

Over the years Ellen songs have been featured on hit television shows like Dance Moms, Shameless, and Hand of God along with movies such as “Fallin Inn Love” and “To The Bone”.

The sunny single “I’m Feeling Lucky” was used in a Hershey’s Kisses Deluxe commercial, and the empowering track “Unbreakable” was featured in a Dove and Target spot.

Ellen has also been written about and praised in numerous publications, including The Fort Worth Star-Telegram, PopSugar, American Songwriter, as well as various tech blogs for her clever transposition of music and technology. In 2020, The Dallas Observer featured her song  “Be Okay” as well an interview discussing the pandemic and having hope in uncertain times.

Ellen’s latest single, “Survivor,” was released in 2021, and she has plans to work on new material. “I want people to be encouraged and inspired when they listen to my songs,” she says. “It’s about spreading love through music.”

What’s Going On?


Be Okay (New Music)

This song is about dealing with anxiety which I think is important during this time. I hope that it will encourage you during this unique season of quarantine and uncertainty.

“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…”

PRESTON JONES - Pop Music Critic

“Ellen Once Again is an artist who expresses herself in a soulful pop sound that is both original and addictive.”

And I'll rise up
High like the waves
I'll rise up
In spite of the ache
I'll rise up
And I'll do it a thousands times again ~Andra Day
