Spotted by Gordon G, long time Banana Klan Artiste development consultant, Ellie is a singer/ song writer from Farnham who first debuted at Roots Manuva’s birthday party 2009 at the Macbeth, London.
Ellie has a full band of her own called Rigolo and plays Guitar, teaches Ballet and is a very compelling performer.
Roots Manuva – “Ellie is my kind of Artiste she fits the anti label B.K. remit to a tie. Her natural influence
such as Nick Drake and Ottis Redding straddle easily with the often unconventional sound system platform
of Dub College. I remixed one of her songs “Everything about you” for an exclusive on line release/ dub plate and was amazed
at how adaptable her vocal timbre is to any sonic back drop.”
There is lots in store for on going Ellie Mae /Banana klan relations.
Watch this space for more exclusive Ellie Mae action, but in the meantime, check THIS this is just faze one. The part two remix of the remix is nearly finished and will be premiered on the Banana klan sound system .
