Irish Giants of Bass | Ellen O'Reilly

Stephen McGrath's Basscraft

Since the day she switched from guitar to bass aged 17, Ellen O’Reilly has been one of the busiest bassists around. Combined with a powerful lead vocal, this has made her a go-to musician for live, recording and TV work alike. Having been initially self-taught, Ellen decided to take her playing to the next level and won the prestigious Ernieball/Musicman Bass Scholarship to study at the Institute of Contemporary Music Performance in 2011. She then went on to win the “Best Bassist” award and leave with an Honours Degree in Popular Music Performance. Ellen began appearing at the Ernieball/Musicman stand at the London Bass Guitar Show from 2012-2017 demoing both solo and performing with a trio. She was also gaining notoriety for not only her solid bass playing, but her powerful vocals and toured with artists such as Sarah Harding (Girls aloud), Dona Oxford and Erika among others. This led to her touring Europe, the Far East and appearing on many UK TV shows.
