UK Song of the Year – Americana Awards UK 2020
Album of the Year – 2020 UK Blues Awards
Artist of the year – 2020 UK Blues Awards
2020 started with a bang for the super-smoky-voiced, hard-working, far-touring chanteuse Elles Bailey when “Little Piece of Heaven” written with storied Memphis and Nashville giant Bobby Wood, & Dan Auerbach (of The Black Keys) picked up ‘UK Song of the Year’ at the UK Americana Awards. It’s taken from her chart topping sophomore album ‘Road I Call Home’ which was released to rave reviews and awarded ‘Album of the Year’ at the UK Blues Awards. The album charted in both the Official UK Country Charts & Americana charts, has gained over 2.4 million streams since its release and reached No.1 on the Amazon Blues Bestseller chart. Adding to Elles’ string of awards she also picked up the high accolade of ‘Artist of the Year’ at the UK Blues Awards.
As a self-confessed ‘rolling stone’ – Elles continued her wide-ranging headline touring throughout the UK and Europe in 2019 and early 2020 as well as being special guest support for Grammy Award winner Mike Farris, The Kris Barras Band and King King. She also shared the stage with Beth Hart at Ramblin’ Man, The Temperance Movement at Swing Wespelaar and appeared at Nashville’s Americana Fest as part of the ‘House of Songs’ collaboration.
2021 sees Elles playing many more international stages including taking to the high seas for the Joe Bonamassa ‘Keeping the Blues Alive at Sea’ cruise alongside the man himself, Joe Bonamassa, King King, Walter Trout and many more.
Miss Bailey really does call the road home & when she arrives near you, don’t think twice, get there. A great evening and a long musical friendship will be waiting.

As a singer-songwriter Phil King has the whole trinity: a beautiful, soulful singing voice; deft skills at playing the guitar and the capacity to write elegantly worded and powerful songs. His latest studio album The Wreckage received excellent media attention with Radio 2’s Bob Harris describing him as “Absolutely Brilliant” and a “Song Weaver”.
Last year saw the release of his new album “Phil King – Live” recorded live at Bristol’s Wardrobe Theatre.
