Ellen Winter is a performer, composer, and theater-maker hailing from the woods of Fairfax, Virginia currently camping out in Brooklyn, NY. She and Chris Littler wrote, directed, and composed the 36 Questionsa musical podcast, produced by Two Up, starring Jonathan Groff and Jessie Shelton.  

She is a founding member of the Electric Eye Ensemble and Daughters of Elysium. She sings, hits keys, and composes with Chamber Band, a coffee-fueled nerd-rock group that belts of love, capitalism and dragons with three national tours under their belts. Their third album, Governor's Square, inspired by HG Wells, will be available Fall 2017. 

Since its origin in 2015, she has had the joy of working as a guest artist in the UArts Polyphone Festival. She's collaborated with César Alvarez, Heather Christian, The Bengsons, and Dave Malloy.
