Elles Bailey has a talent for crafting and seamlessly weaving rootsy blues, country, and soulful rock with a contemporary edge. What’s more fate has blessed her with a ‘smoky vocal’ style that perfectly fits her music, after a stint in hospital as a child changed her voice forever.

Her 2017 debut album Wildfire was tracked at Blackbird studios Tennessee. Produced by Brad Nowell, ‘Wildfire’ assembled a host of Nashville’s finest, including Grammy Award winning guitarist Brent Mason and three-time ‘Musician Hall Of Famer’ Bobby Wood. Blended together back in the UK with the likes of Jonny Henderson (Robyn Ford, Matt Schofield) on Hammond organ and Joe Wilkins on blistering guitar, the result is a unique trans-Atlantic coming together of styles.

Reviewers have been wowed by Elles and her debut; Maverick Magazine gave Wildfire top marks calling every song “Fresh and Original”.

2018 continues to be a busy, successful year for this talented singer-songwriter with Elles nominated for four different UK Blues awards, an upcoming European tour, appearances at key Country and Blues festivals, and a recent return to the studio in Nashville to record some eagerly-anticipated new material.
