Ellie Goulding Biography
Following in the footsteps of Adele and Florence + The Machine, Ellie Goulding capitalised on a huge industry buzz to become one of the UK’s most successful young female singer-songwriters. Born in Herefordshire in 1986, she first started penning her own material aged 15 and later began honing her eclectic mix of acoustic pop, folk and electronica whilst studying drama at the University of Kent. Spotted by manager Jamie Lillywhite at a talent contest, she then signed to Polydor Records in 2009, hooked up with producer Starsmith to record her debut album and supported fellow synth-pop chanteuse Little Boots on her UK tour. The demand for Ellie Goulding tickets grew at the beginning of 2010 when she was announced as the winner of both the BBC’s prestigious Sound of 2010 poll and the BRITs Critics Choice Award. While later that year she topped her homeland’s album charts with Lights, scored a string of hit singles (“Starry Eyed,” “Guns & Horses,” “The Writer”) and co-wrote songs for the likes of Gabriella Cilmi, Diana Vickers and Eurovision winner Lena. After releasing Ellie Goulding tickets for her first headline tour and an expanded edition of her debut LP, Bright Lights, she achieved her biggest UK hit with a cover version of Elton John’s “Your Song,” guested on Tinie Tempah’s single, “Wonderman,” and performed at various festivals including Glastonbury, Belgium’s Pukkelpop and Spain’s Benicassim. Championed by the likes of Rolling Stone, Ellie Goulding tickets then went on sale for her first North American tour in 2011, the same year she also performed at Prince William and Kate Middleton’s wedding reception, the Nobel Peace Prize Concert in Oslo and the White House’s National Christmas Tree lighting ceremony. And following an appearance on her then-boyfriend Skrillex’s Bangarang E.P. and the 700th episode of Saturday Night Live, she peaked at No.2 on the Billboard charts with the single, “Lights.” In 2012, she contributed a track to The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn – Part 2 soundtrack (“Bittersweet”), recorded a collaboration with Calvin Harris (“I Need Your Love”) and reached the US Top 10 with her second album, Halcyon, before releasing Ellie Goulding tickets for a world tour. In 2013, she appeared at the charity concert, Sound of Change, and opened for Bruno Mars on the North American leg of his Moonshine Jungle tour.
