Lichfield Arts Presents Elles Bailey
Lichfield Arts has a fine tradition of bringing quality new acts to the Guildhall stage, and that strong trend continues with the welcome debut of the critically acclaimed singer-songwriter Elles Bailey.
They say you get a lifetime to write your first album & the blink of an eye to make your second. Elles Bailey wins either way, and she's followed up the widespread success of debut Wildfire with the stunningly mature and highly personal synopsis of a year that changed her life with the no.1 selling brand new album 'Road I Call Home'.
Like its chart-topping predecessor, 'Road I Call Home' features co-writing contributions from high-calibre collaborators, including British hit-making legend and Ivor Novello Award winner Roger Cook, storied Memphis and Nashville giant Bobby Wood, as well as Dan Auerbach (of Akron, Ohio powerhouses The Black Keys) on the infectious 'Little Piece of Heaven'.
The album has already had 500000 streams on Spotify (her total streams run into millions) and has received curated playlist support as well as picking up tons of Spotify algorithmic plays on releaser radar. From relatively humble beginnings, Elles has by dint of hard work and talent smashed through and past much bigger artists and more prominent industry players - not least major record labels - by taking time and effort to understand the brave new world that is today's landscape, being brave, breaking the rules, making a few mistakes (always part of the learning process) and just powering through obstacles and doing whatever it takes.
