Artist to Know: Ellie Goulding

December 19, 2010

Do you know who Ellie Goulding is?  I didn’t think so.  Consider this your formal introduction.  Goulding is an English singer & songwriter who has been gaining considerable buzz over the past year or two resulting in her debut album Lights which features some amazing lyrical treasures including my personal favorite “Starry-Eyed”.  She’s making her way slowly but surely to these parts of the world and bringing along her amazing songs but also a great knack for covers.

I discovered Goulding via a cover she did of Sam Sparro’s “Black & Gold” and she has since done some great covers including the latest one done on BBC Radio of Rihanna’s international smash “Only Girl (In the World)“.  Check out the stripped down version below.
