Medicine Man - Elles Bailey
LCM Song Of The Day: ‘Medicine Man’ - Elles Bailey
The excellent rocky and bluesy ‘Medicine Man’ is the first single from Elles’ highly anticipated forthcoming second album ‘Road I Call Home’ due for release in March. Highly recommended
Elles’ new material follows on from her successful and critically-acclaimed debut album, ‘Wildfire’. Maverick Magazine awarded ‘Wildfire’ top marks (5/5) and predicted that “If Bailey can follow this album up with something equally as good as ‘Wildfire’, there’s no reason why she can’t hit the heights (Taylor) Swift did”. With her new material, Elles proves that she can successfully continue that climb.
Live venues and performance are important to Elles Bailey, crowned “The Blues Princess” by Blues in Britain. She’s brought her genre-crossing music to fans in her own headline tours before, and also played festivals and toured with other artists, like Jo Harman, Wille & The Bandits, and Eric Gales. She’s also, this year, been promoting the work of small, independent music venues, like Little Rabbit Barn, for whom Elles recorded a special set of downloadable tracks to support them.
Bristol-based Elles Bailey has a talent for crafting and seamlessly weaving rootsy blues, country, and soulful rock, with a contemporary edge. Her music draws on these roots and Ingredients, blending and transcending them, with each song given a unique flavour and texture by Elles’ unique, super-smoky, utterly unforgettable voice. Bluesdoodles dubbed her “The Voice of the Blues”, whilst Music News observed that “A childhood illness gave her a remarkable tool and she uses it to its very best effect. One of the best things I've heard."
