TRUTH | LOVE | MEANING | PURPOSE
An inspiring performer, cantorial soloist, and songleader based in Nashville, Ellie Flier has found her passion and purpose in writing Jewish music. Listeners can’t help but feel a palpable connection to her songs, whether calling for social justice or rising up in joyous celebration. An eclectic mix of Jewish day school, a college major in opera, and seven years as a Nashville songwriter gives Ellie a unique quality and sound as she deconstructs Hebrew liturgy to find deeper meaning in the context of the world around us today — and, of course, all her poetic lyrics are accompanied by beautiful and catchy melodies.
Named an Emerging Artist on Jewish Rock Radio and published in Ruach 5779: The Best of Contemporary Jewish Rock and Pop, her music has been enjoyed and performed all over the country. At home in Nashville, Ellie co-founded Music City’s “Jewsic City Shabbat,” a popular monthly unplugged service for young professionals. On the road she has performed at the URJ Biennial conference, served as a songleader on Birthright Israel, and led services at communities around the United States and abroad.
