20 year old rising star Elli Ingram, whose Sober EP marked her out as an artist with a sound and voice of rare depth for one so young, makes her Island Records debut with the release of the haunting song "When It Was Dark". "When It Was Dark" is the first taste from a collection of songs, released on March 3rd, that Brighton born and based Elli has been writing and recording over the last few months. If you think of Elli's forthcoming album, due later this year, in terms of a three course meal, then consider "When It Was Dark" as your first appetiser, an amuse bouche if you like.
The accompanying video was directed by the award-winning Emil Nava, (Ed Sheeran, Tinie Tempah, Jessie J) who was so blown away by Elli's talent when he worked on the "Mad Love" video, that he has committed to be working alongside Elli on all visual aspects of the campaign from here on in.
You can see what all the fuss is about when Elli performs two live dates in February, the first at the Bermuda Triangle in Brighton on February 11th and the second at Old Queens Head in Islington the following night February 12th.
General sale from 9am on Friday 24th January.
