This autumn rising star Elli Ingram celebrated her critically acclaimed debut album, “Love You Really”, with an exclusive sold-out show at London’s Omeara. Having cemented her reputation as an extraordinary live performer, Elli now announces her first UK headline tour, kicking off early 2018.
Ingram, whose widely acclaimed mini-album ”The Doghouse marked her out as an artist of unusual complexity and power for one so young, finally released, via Island Records, the eagerly awaited Love You Really, proving conclusively what all the fuss was about for this 24 year old Brighton native. The three songs which heralded the release of the album ‘Table For Two’, ‘Better Alone’ and ‘Stone Cold’ and the accompanying visuals, as well as the stunning album cover, point to an artist of rare honesty who continues to provoke thought and challenge with her music.
No Brit School alumni, Elli developed her impressive vocals first in her bedroom, then gigging in her hometown of Brighton. Drawing comparisons to Amy Winehouse and Adele, she grew up in a musical house: her dad performing in a classic rock cover band, her mum listening to Joni Mitchell, reggae and ska and her sister playing piano. Now, having toured Europe with Chase & Status and sung to a crowd of more than 10,000 at Glastonbury, she says the stage is where she feels most at home: “It’s the best feeling. I feel relaxed and safe in a weird sort of way. Especially when it’s dark and you can’t really see anyone and it’s just me. I love it.”
Tickets on sale Wednesday 6th December at 9am, and can be picked up here.
