Ellie Goulding

Biography

‘Halcyon’ is the follow-up to Ellie Goulding’s hugely successful debut album ‘Lights’ which was released in 2010 and has gone on to sell one and a half million copies and generate five million single sales worldwide.

The Hereford-born singer songwriter first came to prominence when she topped the BBC Sound of 2010 Poll and was simultaneously awarded the Brits Critics Choice Award. She is the only artist other than Adele to have received both accolades.  On release ‘Lights’ went straight to number one in the Official UK Album Charts, cementing Ellie Goulding’s status as the breakthrough artist of 2010. ‘Lights’ went on to become the biggest and fastest selling debut album of 2010, spawning playlist staples ‘Starry Eyed’, ‘Guns And Horses’ , ‘The Writer’, ‘Your Song’ and ‘Lights’ (the latter two featured on repackaged album ‘Bright Lights’) and has topped triple platinum status in the UK with sales of over  850,000 to date. A devoted live following has meant every UK tour date Ellie Goulding announced has sold out.  Early 2011 saw Ellie Goulding receive nominations for two Brit Awards – British Female Solo Act and British Breakthrough Act – confirming her prominence at the forefront of the British music scene.
