Hi! I'm Ellen McSweeney. I'm a musician and writer fascinated by the music of our time, and its connection to the human quest for truth, connection, and freedom. I'm also a student of yoga and meditation.

I perform as a violinist and vocalist, compose music collaboratively and alone, and am writing a book about how musicians' lives and careers are transformed by trauma and loss. 

I'm also a consultant, serving artists, scholars, and organizations all over the country.      >> Full bio
