Spring has arrived and we can now start dreaming about those hot summer days that we drive around with our windows down blasting music on a road trip with a loved one. Ellis Schoel‘s newest single “Will You Still Remember?” is out now on all platforms, and will for sure bring us to that state of mind. The video will follow mid-April.
“Will You Still Remember?” was written by Ellis Schoel, three-time Grammy-nominated producer and songwriter Johnny Black, and Grammy-nominated engineer Mike Piazza in early 2020 at Black and Piazza’s home studio in Nashville, Tennessee. It is a song that talks about young love and wanting the feeling of the early stages of love, when everything is perfect, to last forever. Drawing influence from the pop and folk genres, “Will You Still Remember?” is reminiscent of the works of artists such as Ed Sheeran, The Lumineers, and Shawn Mendes with its big choruses, high-energy production, and emotion-packed lyrics that are incredibly relatable. Schoel says of the song:
“This song is perfect to be listened to during summer driving with the windows down, at a party with friends, or when you’re dancing alone in your kitchen. It’s a straight-up good time.”

I grew up in Alberta, but spent most of my life in British Columbia – I also spent a lot of my summers in Britain as I was lucky enough to have immigrant parents with the capital to go visit our relatives. The amount of time I spent overseas makes it hard for me to say I feel fully Canadian, but it does make me feel typically Canadian as so many of us have mixed parentage. My parents defined another divide in me as I feel inexorably pulled to both science and the art; my father being a doctor and my mother being a school teacher. I studied both in university and now work on making healthcare software during the day, then write/read/draw/paint/dance in my evenings. My global wanderings, my education, and the fact that my appetite for media could be described as ‘voracious’ means my frame of reference is pretty varied. It’s hard to say that I have a favourite music genre, rather I am always seeking sounds that convey a sense earnestness an honesty.
