So On It

By: Laurie Gallardo

File this in the “you just never know” department. It was about three years ago that UK artist Ella Mai was posting covers of songs on Instagram, never guessing that these covers would catch the attention of producer DJ Mustard, who signed Ella Mai onto his label. Following a number of EP’s, last year she released her bold R&B self-titled full-length debut.

Thus, we have “The Debut Tour.” Ella Mai performs in Austin tonight at Emo’s, 2015 E. Riverside Dr. The bill includes opening performances by Kiana Ledé, and Lucky Daye. Doors at 7 p.m. So recommended.

-As of this writing, Ella Mai’s show tonight is SOLD OUT.
