After honing her craft in the US and Amsterdam, South London singer-songwriter Ellie Lawson returned home to release her phenomenal Lost Without You EP on 15th November.
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, and appearing on Ellen DeGeneres’ hugely popular TV show where Ellen extolled: “I play her music over and over again in my house…I predict she will be the hugest, hugest star.”

The tide turned, the music business began to implode and Ellie decided to respond to a call to work with leading trance DJs like Richard Durand and Ferry Corsten in Holland by co-writing and adding her vocals to some of 2010 and 2011s biggest European dance tunes, including ‘Safe From Harm’ with 4 Strings and ‘Wide Awake’ with Richard Durand.
Having worked with the likes of DJ Lethal and William Orbit, Ellie is now a seasoned pro but is still incredibly young for all she’s experienced. Another EP is planned for next year, with acclaimed Communion Records co-founder and super producer Ian Grimble (Benjamin Francis Leftwich, Everything But The Girl, Manic Street Preachers).
