Ellie’s story is a modern tale of overwhelming talent being discovered while young travelling America. This led to a whirlwind courtship by the US entertainment industry including being signed by Atlantic Records, taking meetings with Rap mogul Russell Simmons, Billboard Magazine and working with the likes of DJ Lethal and William Orbit to name a few. After appearing on Ellen DeGeneres’ hugely popular TV show Ellen explained, “I play her music over and over again in my house…I predict she will be the hugest, hugest star.”
Ellie has most recently been working with leading trance DJs like Richard Durand and Ferry Corsten in Holland by co-writing and adding her vocals to some of 2011s biggest European dance tunes, including ‘Safe From Harm’ with 4 Strings which was #1 on Beatport for 5 weeks consecutively, ‘Wide Awake’ with Richard Durand which was #1 in Music Week’s Cool Cuts Chart in 2011 and her recent release ’A day Without Rain, which is the first track on the new Ferry Corsten Album..
Ellie Lawson was also awarded the coveted title of being an ambassador (since 2008) for the Quiksilver brand alongside a select few up and coming acoustic artists like Ben Howard and Leddra Chapman.
It is now her time to come into her own and enjoy the sort of success in the UK she undoubtedly deserves. Working on a new EP with acclaimed Communion Records co-founder and super producer Ian Grimble (Benjamin Francis Leftwich, Everything But The Girl, Manic Street Preachers) Ellie clearly has a big year ahead of her.
