Ellie Gill

LEAD VOCALS

Yorkshire-born Ellie was brought up in a musical family and learned to sing at an early age. Her first influences came from country, bluegrass and folk music, but she has since developed her own brand of soulful jazz and blues. Ellie’s voice has been compared to Mary Hopkin and Joan Baez, and she is also a fine songwriter. Her simple melodies and thoughtful lyrics provide great material for the Band to interpret. Ellie’s solo album “Eye to Eye” was recorded at Legal Studios and is available in our shop.

Originally from Nottingham, Kate is a graduate of the University of Surrey where she studied music.

Kate has travelled extensively as a pianist, singer and composer and has produced two albums of her own music. Kate loves tennis and horses and holds her private pilot’s license (the result of a major mid-life crisis!)
