Bristol based Elles Bailey (28) seamlessly weaves rootsy blues, country and soulful rock with a contemporary edge and her trademark ‘smoky vocals’ taking the lead. Her husky toned, lived-in voice sounds like she has a 60-a-day habit, but was actually caused by a serious illness when she was three. To save her, surgeons had to place a tube in her throat for seventeen days to allow her to breathe, affecting her voice giving it that 'blues feulled' quality that is getting her recognition wherever she sings.
