Emerging Rockhampton singer/songwriter, Bec Ellen is influenced by performers such as Amy Winehouse, Lady Gaga, Jessie J, The Pretty Reckless and Stevie Nicks. Music to Bec is the freedom to tell stories, convey emotion, be vulnerable and relate to others through a powerful and personal medium.
Bec has never really lived the life of a normal teenager. In 2012, she started getting sick; by her first day of high school, she couldn’t even function. For two long years Bec battled constant nausea causing weight loss, fatigue to the point where getting out of bed was a struggle, and skin so sensitive it hurt just to be touched. After many, many doctor, hospital visits and inconclusive tests she was diagnosed with Chronic Fatigue Syndrome (CFS/ME). Bec had to give up her goal of completing school in her final year to focus on getting well; no formal, no graduation, and no celebration.
But there was always music and Bec wouldn’t change this for anything because, through isolation, illness, anxiety and depression, she realised her passion for creating music and performing would be a part of her life forever. Bec believes her struggles have given her a unique perspective on life and wouldn’t be where she is today if it wasn’t for music. Bec turned to music to help fill her days and the artists she discovered resonated with her in a way nothing else had before. She picked up her Dad’s guitar and started playing and writing songs and quickly realised that her purpose was to give the same sense of understanding, passion and the comfort she received through this medium to others. Well on her way to recovery, Bec says music gives her purpose and she sings every day.
Bec’s first music video for her song ‘Love Isn’t Easy’ can be found on the YouTube channel for Blue Eagle Productions, who created and produced the visual piece. ‘Love Isn’t Easy’ along with several other original songs will soon be recorded for her first EP being released later in 2018.

Love Isn't Easy
Her lips taste
Like the sugar cakes
His mum made when he was twelve
Her hair falls in waves
Like the ones they saw
On their very first date
And I wish I had someone to know like that
But love isn’t easy
Love isn’t easy when you’re tryna find it every night
Love isn’t easy when you’re tryna fight the fight
Love isn’t easy so you can stay or leave me
But I, will never stop wanting you
His ex-girl still has
His picture saved
On her phone
She goes out
Just to forget that she’s alone
And I wish I had someone to miss like that
I thought I found a love
But it turns out
He’s not mine to hold
We all stand
on the line
between love and dishonesty
