IT BEGINS WITH -
An endless passion for creating, for connecting,
for self discovery, for people, for life.
Performing artist Ellen Nasser was raised in a small Saskatchewan community named Saltcoats. Typical of rural life, Nasser took music lessons as a way to fill the long, hot prairie summer days and the cold winter ones that keep you stuck indoors. She began her musical career with the touring musical revue, Saskatchewan Express, as well as the Canadian Heritage Society’s Spirit of a Nation, a showcase of Canadian song and dance celebrating Canada’s cultures and history.
Nasser studied at the prestigious Canadian College of Performing Arts in Victoria, B.C. and honed her musical talents aboard Norwegian Cruise Lines. Multitalented, Nasser has also acted in TV series like Rabbit Fall and Corner Gas, as well as in stage adaptations of Evita and Toon Town with Saskatoon’s Persephone Theatre.
As a songwriter and recording artist, Nasser has five albums to her name and has completed a Christmas album that was released on December 7th/19 the evening she performed with the Saskatoon Symphony Orchestra.
To conclude a full 2019, Ellen Nasser released a comical Christmas video: ‘Am I the Only One’ on to YouTube and her social media platforms. Picture a ‘Home Alone Mom’ Catherine O’Hara, singing a song when she realizes she forgot Kevin! Getting lots of giggles and shares, Ellen is most happy expressing herself.
Ellen Nasser has released numerous songs to country radio including Sweet Millie, How Christmas Used to Feel, Almost Christmas, Something In Me and Eight More Days.
Most recently Ellen has released her “Stillness” Album of piano compositions.
Ellen loves to create, connect and enjoy life. She is always writing, performing and evolving. The truest loves of her life are hubby Johnny and their four babies: Bella, Millie, Sam, Walt and puppy Sofi.
