Ellie Goulding

One of the most popular young singers around at the moment, Ellie Goulding is a singer-songwriter from England. Her soprano voice is instantly recognizable thanks to its delicate vibrato quality. The originality of her voice has been highly praised, as well as her ability to adapt to multiple genres, including indie pop, synthpop, folktronica and electronica.

Her article Lights (released in the US in 2011) was an international success, and increased Ellie's fan base considerably. Since then, she's been collecting awards everywhere, including a Brit Award in 2014 for Best British Female. Her most recent album, Halycon shows a more mature, reflective side to the singer's work, with a note of hopeful redemption.

As a child, Ellie first picked up the guitar at 14, and started writing songs a year later. Despite not coming from a musical background, she quickly became a passionate performer. She was initally influenced by electronic music, which can be heard in her earlier work which combines synthetic beats with catchy pop riffs. In the past few years she has performed alongside some of the music industry's biggest names. She was invited to sing at the White House and also at the wedding reception of Prince William and Kate Middleton in 2011!

Ellie is a keen sportswoman, and is a regular runner: participating in many charity races. Her personal style is edgy - never afraid to take a fashion risk, Ellie usually pulls it off with finesse! She's a regular on the British festival scene, and loves to hang out with other talented young musicians such as Lorde and Katy Perry.
