Smashed Vinyl and The Green Door Store have teamed up to stick a much deserved spotlight on some of the best emerging musical talent from across the UK.
We start with the sublime Ellie Ford, whose mixture of soothing harp, enchanting vocals and up tempo backing band create something very impressive and exciting. It's traditional folk music with a modern twist. Not only is the music as sweet as honey to the listeners ears, it's also very clever. The way Ellie uses the instruments at her disposal to create the best sound possible is a masterpiece.
The sounds of Ellie Ford and her band take the listener away into a dream-like state in which you slip into your own fantasies. Her voice is like LSD but with addition of a harp.
Tracks such as July, Take Me To Shore and How Do You Know are some of the best songs you will hear this year. Ellie Ford is definitely Brighton's leading talent when it comes to Folk music. She is playing Brighton's Green Door Store on October 17th, click her for info. The show is free and we encourage you all to head down for what is surely to be an unmissable performance.
