Ellie Goulding, the Lady with the Golden Voice
Her voice strikes the soul like lightening and appeals like pleasure. Her dynamism of style invokes the climax of satisfaction. She’s been on fire ever since she was 9 (when she started playing the clarinet) till 2009 when she met her record producers and got signed with the Polydor Records. It was at this juncture that her career officially began and it kept getting better. It’s all about Ellie Goulding, the singer, songwriter and multi-instrumentalist whose reach has long ranging tentacles and whose fame will reign in the foreseeable future.
Goulding was born 30th December, 1986 in Hereford, England. Her debut single “Under the Sheets” was released by the independent label Neon Gold Records. She released her debut album “Lights” in March, 2010 and it reached number one on UK Album’s Chart and number six on the Irish Album Chart. In August 2010, she released “Run into the Light” which contained the remix of the songs from “Lights”. She covered Elton John’s “Your Song” in the UK. In October 2012, she released her second album titled “Halcyon” and repackaged it as “Halcyon Days” in August 2013.
Goulding’s voice has been described as “something special” and this is likely because she has been influenced by Bjork, Joni Mitchell and Lauryn Hill as well as contemporaries such as Adele and Beyonce. Although, she sings pop well, she can sing folktronica skillfully.
Goulding’s latest album “Delirium” shows how much she has evolved over the years and her usual dark aura is missing from this album which is far more from melancholic. This album was released in 2015. A feature track “Love me like you do” was a huge hit as it held record for the most streamed track in a week in the UK and US. It was also featured in the soundtrack of the movie “Fifty Shades of Grey”. It earned nominations for Grammy Award’s Best Pop Solo Performance and British Single of the Year and Best British Video Awards.
Goulding has performed in the Wavestock Festival in Wales, Lollapalcoza in Chicago, annual Nobel Peace Prize Concert in Oslo, Norway, White House during the National Christmas Tree Lighting, Firefly Music Festival, in the 2015 AFL Grand Final and at the wedding reception of Prince William and Catherine Middleton at Buckingham Palace.
The British singer contributed the track “Bittersweet” to the soundtrack of the “Twilight Saga; Breaking Dawn – Part 2”. She appeared on the soundtrack for the film “The Hunger Games; Catching Fire”. She also performed a duet with finalist Luke friend on the X Factor. She is the second artist to top the BBC’s annual “Sound Of…”and in the same year won the Critic’s Choice at the Brit Awards. Ellie loves running and plans to run a marathon. She is on a vegan diet and a notable philanthropist.
Ellie Goulding is a musician who has quite translated from being dark and fame shy to being bold, daring and fearless. Surely, there will be more from her to come.
