Already a success in her native England, 23 year-old UK singer and songwriter Ellie Goulding is set to show the rest of the world her own unique sound. Described as "electro-folk-acoustic-pop," Ellie's songs mix heartfelt emotion with other-worldly atmospherics, spinning electronica into dreamy warmth.
If you see her live, leave your expectations at the door. She does everything from playing the guitar to ripping the drums to incorporating her electronic influences as she works the crowd. She has opened for big acts like Little Boots and Passion Pit, and performed at many UK festivals including Glastonbury, Festival, V Festival, Lovebox and T in the Park.
Ellie has received numerous accolades from her motherland in the form of The Critics Choice Award at the 2010 Brit Awards & topped the BBC sound of 2010 poll. Produced by Starsmith, Goulding's full length release Lights shot to #1 on the UK chart in March 2010.
