Elles Bailey brings ‘The Road I Call Home Tour’ to Blue Sky Café.
Rising star Elles Bailey continues her onwards and upwards ascent of the mountain of country rock heading for the high ground and peak, and is announcing ‘The Road I Call Home Tour’ that will hit the road itself this Autumn 2018.
Prior to this, Elles will be playing festivals, HRH Crows and The Carlisle Blues Festivals, in September, but is looking forward to undertaking her own headline tour thereafter. ‘The Road I Call Home Tour’ is my biggest headline tour to date,” says Elles herself, “and I am so excited to play some brand new cities, some old favourite places and share this new album I’ve been working so hard on.”
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. 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.”
Do not miss the chance to experience this rising star, with her unique voice and amazing new material, in her natural habitat of live performance, taking some new songs to new cities.
