At only 21, Ellie yields powerfully quaint songs with thought-provoking mature themes. Embedding heavy lyrical inspiration from the early greats like Joni Mitchell, Leonard Cohen and Nick Cave, Ellie has produced her own folk-driven contemporary style. Traces of Katie Melua, John Martyn and Laura Marling creep into her melodies.
Being a self-taught guitarist and lyricist, Ellie adopted a soothing disposition towards the composition of the guitar around her voice, letting the accompaniment of the guitar express the sentiment of the song as much as the lyrics do.
Over the years, Ellie has encountered a range of singing styles including musical theatre and choir and her voice has developed into a mellisonant swirl of warm, dulcet tones and a secure sense of her own voice.
