Elles’s trademark husky, lived-in voice may sound like this young songstress keeps up a 60-a-day habit, but was actually caused by a serious childhood illness. At the tender age of three, Elles contracted both viral and bacterial pneumonia. Ever-resilient, Elles recovered,but her voice had changed completely. An ENT visit revealed no permanent damage, but as the specialist prophetically observed, “If she ever wants to sing, she’ll be a natural blues vocalist!”
Now, the miracle girl with the made-for-the-blues voice has released her debut album, ‘Wildfire’, produced by Brad Nowell, on 1st September, 2017 which debuted at no 2 in the iTunes Blues Charts.
Reviewers have been wowed by Elles and her debut album - Maverick Magazine gave ‘Wildfire’ top marks (5/5) calling every song 'Fresh & Orginal'
"It’s a fact that very few make it to the big stage,” Blues In Britain reminds us, but “Elles Bailey has the necessary talent, the drive, and now the product."
2018 has stared with a bang, with four U.K. Blues Nominations, slots at London Blues week and The AMAUK Festival and she’s currently embarking on a headline European Tour.
