Elles is a smoky-voiced human dynamo, who straddles the worlds of Americana and the blues, garnering accolades in both. 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. The album charted in both the Official UK Country Charts & Americana charts, has gained over 4 million streams since its release and reached No.1 on the Amazon Blues Bestseller chart. 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 in 2021

As a self-confessed ‘rolling stone’ – Elles continued her wide-ranging headline touring throughout the UK and Europe in 2019 and early 2020 as well as being special guest support for Grammy Award winner Mike Farris, The Kris Barras Band and King King. She also shared the stage with Beth Hart at Ramblin’ Man, The Temperance Movement at Swing Wespelaar and appeared at Nashville’s Americana Fest as part of the ‘House of Songs’ collaboration.  She featured at selected festivals throughout the summer of 2021 including Love Rocks, a headline slot at Cheltenham Music Fest and the British Country Music Festival and she is back out on the road for Autumn 2021.

The first offering ‘Cheats & Liars’ from Elles new album Shining in the Half Light, due in 2022, dropped on August 20th and has earned airplay and critical praise. The single enjoyed a world exclusive on ‘The Blues Show with Cerys Matthews’, on BBC Radio Two and was added to Planet Rock’s A-List and was the most played track on Planet Rock in September 2021.

“Incredibly listenable, filled with passion and that feeling of injustice,” said Music News, awarding ‘Cheats and Liars’ 5 stars, “one of the best singles I’ve heard this year and it suggests her upcoming album will be something very special.”

2022 is looking bright – a brand new studio record, touring Europe and joining Joe Bonamassa on his 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.
