Elles Bailey

 “Spellbinding – Elles Bailey is on the road to stardom – just make sure you don’t miss her journey” Fireworks 

2020 started with a bang for the super-smoky-voiced, hard-working, far-touring chanteuse Elles Bailey when “Little Piece of Heaven” written with storied Memphis and Nashville giant Bobby Wood, and 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 2.4 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’ at the UK Blues Awards.

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.

 

2021 will see Elles playing many more international stages including taking to the high seas for the Joe Bonamassa ‘Keeping the Blues Alive at Sea’ cruise alongside the man himself, Joe Bonamassa, King King, Walter Trout and many more.

 

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.
