Ellie Ford announces new album and Brighton in-store

Ellie Ford

Brighton-based musician and songwriter Ellie Ford will release her second full-length album in May, Light.Repeated., and to celebrate the arrival of her sophomore record, she will be holding a special in-store performance at Brighton’s Resident on Monday 13th May at 6.30pm.

Light.Repeated. sees Ellie veering into a spectrum of musical genres as she touches on jazz, folk, and trip-hop, creating a bold and artistic piece of work that follows on beautifully from her 2016 debut album The Other Sun.

While this could be considered an adventurous album, as Ellie breaks free from any genre expectations, it does retain the beautiful arrangements that featured on the first full-length record and, unsurprisingly, this is due to the retention of the same band that featured on The Other Sun.

With Fred Hills on drums, Andrew Stuart-Buttle on violin, Harry Haynes on guitar and Freya Bowes on clarinet, Ellie’s harp-playing abilities are taken to higher grounds, as the eight tracks take many unexpected turns, to produce a rewarding result for any keen listener.

To secure your spot at the in-store show in May, all you have to do is pre-order the new album on 180g vinyl LP and you’ll receive two free guestlist spaces.
