Stella Ramola is the genre-splicing polymath that Christian music needs now. Raised across Asia and North America, and based in Chennai, Stella weaves her deep knowledge of international styles into a stunning musical tapestry that reveals new intricacies on every listen. Adding to the unique magic is the fact that Stella writes and co-produces all of her music herself with her first album being released at the age of 7. With her team of creative professionals, she is constantly pushing boundaries and challenging the way Christian music is made. Her 2020 album, Journey was met by applause as it led to the song, "It'll Happen” becoming a super hit. The song’s simple yet powerful message instantly resonated with listeners garnering over 500,000 plays across all music platforms. Journey was hailed with praise by Rolling Stone, “Stella breaks away from being neatly categorized due to the sonic treatment on Journey, her sublime voice breathing conviction into rock ballads, vibrant electro-pop, nostalgic disco, groovy funk and galloping rock.” Stella's graceful grit to make meaningful music touches the soul, heals the heart, and expands the mind.
In 2016, she went on a four-city tour in India, singing well-known Christian and gospel songs, encouraging young people to let loose, dance, and praise God in those concerts.
