ENJOY an evening of rootsy blues, country and soulful rock with the sublime vocals of songstress Elles Bailey.

Bristol-based blues princess Elles Bailey is heading to Bridport Arts Centre on March 3 with a band of brothers for support.

She seamlessly weaves rootsy blues, country and soulful rock with a contemporary edge and her trademark ‘smoky vocals’ take the lead. Her husky toned, soulful voice sounds like she has a 60-a-day cigarette habit, but was actually caused by a serious illness when she was three.

Her two EP’s, both produced by Brian Banks, (Michael Jackson, Lionel Richie) Who I Am To Me (2015) and The Elberton Sessions, released last year, were released to critical acclaim, and her debut album is set to drop this Spring.

No stranger to the music scene, over the last three years, this captivating, hard-working songstress and her talented band have built up a loyal all-age fan base through relentless touring, throughout both the UK and Europe.

She’s opened for acts like Wille & The Bandits and shared festival line-ups with Lisa Simone, The Mystery Jets & Wilko Johnson.

2017 looks set to be a very busy year for Elles with over 30 dates scheduled in the run up to her debut album release in April.

Her festival diary is also filling up very quickly. Elles will feature at The Great British Rock and Blues Festival in Skegness.

Like many artists today, Elles is breaking down the barriers of traditional genres, taking inspiration from many and fusing them together to bring audiences her own unique sound, which is earning her a legion of devoted fans, young and old, from across the UK and further afield.

Elles Bailey’s touring band are Joe Wilkins on guitar, Zak Ranyard on bass, Andy Sutor on drums with guest appearances from Jonny Henderson on B3.

*Elles Bailey and support, live at Bridport Arts Centre Friday, March 3 at 8pm.
