At only 22, Ellie Goulding has become a driving force of the latest crop of young gifted artists populating the charts in the UK. She’s a singer-songwriter who mixes heartfelt emotion with other-worldly atmospherics and cool electronica, using her guitar skills in every song. Her debut album, Lights, was released on the back of a tide of critical success, having topped the BBC Sounds of 2010 as well as scooping the Critics Choice award at this year’s Brits. Ellie’s sound is a mesmerizing mix, with her fingers on her guitar, her feet in a night-club and her head in the heavens, taking her listeners on a wonderful journey between dance-till-you-drop euphoria (Starry Eyed) to wistful, journeying space-folk (Guns and Horses). Ellie Goulding will be a performer at our next Jack Daniels Set.
