A Name to Know -- Ellie Goulding

One of most talked about artists this past year or so has been Ellie Goulding. Even though she hasn't released a full length album or EP yet, she is clearly on the brink. She has recently been signed by Polydor Records (UK), and is set to have her first single "Under the Sheets" released in the next few weeks. If you haven't heard of Polydor Records, they have signed the Pussycat Dolls, Jonas Brothers, Gavin Rossdale, the Cure, Snow Patrol, etc...

Ellie's sound might best be described as folk meets electronic-- thanks to her collaboration with Starsmith and Frankmusik. Her unique covers of Bon Iver's Wolves and Passion Pit's Sleepyhead are arguably as good as the originals, and her cover of Sam Sparro's Black + Gold is unquestionably. Her original material is even better... thanks to her smooth vocals and wide range. Don't take my word for it. Take a listen.

I would say "buy the cd here" -- but she hasnt released one yet. No worries. I'm sure its coming soon.

Here is a clip of a new song, "The Writer," that Ellie is working on with Starsmith.
