Elles is a smoky-voiced human dynamo, who straddles the worlds of Americana and the blues, garnering accolades in both. Despite the Global pandemic, 2020 started with a bang for the far-touring chanteuse when “Little Piece of Heaven” written with storied Memphis and Nashville giant Bobby Wood, & Dan Auerbach (of The Black Keys) picked up ‘UK Song of the Year’ at the UK Americana Awards. It’s taken from her chart topping sophomore album ‘Road I Call Home’ which was released to rave reviews and awarded ‘Album of the Year’ at the UK Blues Awards. Adding to Elles’ string of awards she also picked up the high accolade of ‘Artist of the Year’ two years in a row at the UK Blues Awards 2020 and 2021 and a nomination for Artist of the Year at the 2022 UK Americana Awards.
Her brand new studio album ‘Shining in the Half Light’ , recorded in those ‘silent’ days during the 2020 lockdowns, drops Feb 25th 2002 with the first three singles having garnered huge support from BBC Radio Two and Planet Rock. Cheats & Liars, Sunshine City and The Game have all been added to the Planet Rock A list playlist, with 11 weeks collectively at the top spot on the UK Airplay Charts. The title track Shining in the Half light received its first play, along with an interview with Cerys Matthews on the Radio 2 Blues Show on 7th Feb 2022.
As a self-confessed ‘rolling stone’ Elles continues to do everything she can to call the road her home and 2022 is looking bright; this year sees Elles play festivals across the length and breadth of the UK and into Europe, and taking to the high seas to play the Joe Bonasmassa - Keeping the Blues Alive at Sea Cruise.
Miss Bailey really does call the road home & when she arrives near you, don't think twice, get there. A great evening and a long musical friendship will be waiting.
