Ellie Goulding Announces American Dates
Currently nominated for two 2011 BRIT Awards (for "British Female Solo Artist" and "British Breakthrough Act"), Goulding is gearing up for the Stateside release of Lights.
"I'm really excited to come to America and visit new places and see new countryside," she says. "I feel ready to introduce my music and see what people think of it there. I'm hoping they'll like it and be inspired, the way I was when I first heard certain artists. I want to create that excitement you get when you've discovered something special and feel happy to have ever come across it in the first place."
Having already conquered her native Britain with the best selling debut album of 2010, Lights -- premiering at No. 1 on the U.K. album chart, four hit singles she co-wrote, and a BRIT award -- singer-songwriter Ellie Goulding is ready to make a similar splash in America with her sparkling electro-folk-pop sound. This past December "Your Song" hit #2 on the charts and #1 on the iTunes Chart and the video has received over 7 million views. The focus track, "Starry Eyed" has already received over 13 million views on YouTube.
This past September, Ellie made her maiden voyage to the US in support of her EP, An Introduction To Ellie Goulding.
