Bristol-based singer, songwriter and bandleader, who has powered her way to the forefront of the British blues and roots scene in recent years, unveils her eagerly-awaited third album Shining in the Half Light. Crammed with vibrant originals brought to life with her A-list touring band, it's yet another significant step forward in a career already feted with awards and acclaim. Shining in the Half Light is Bailey's first full length album recorded in the UK & features Joe Wilkins on guitar, Jonny Henderson on ivories, Matthew Waer on bass duties and Matthew Jones on drums. It was recorded in deepest Devon in December 2020 at Middle Farm Studios and produced by Dan Weller, best known for his long working relationship with Enter Shikari.
Elles wanted this record to feature 'gospel style vocals' so in steps Izo Fitzroy, an incredible artist in her own right, who arranged the stunning background vocals on the album, and performed them alongside Jade Elliot and Andrusilla Mosley.
'Blacktop Companion' features 3 fully produced unheard tracks from the 'Road I Call Home' recording session in Nashville, 3 'live in the studio' alt band versions of songs from Road I Call Home, 2 acoustic versions of Miss me when I'm gone and Medicine Man and a cover of Levon Helms 'When I Go Away'.
For me, 'Blacktop Companion' marks the continuation of this epic “Road I Call Home” adventure that I have travelled for the last year or so, and it tells a lot more of the story! It also highlights the incredible live band that I have had the pleasure of touring this record with, and I am so grateful for their talents, humour and for just being wonderful human beings!'
Elles Live band are: Joe Wilkins - Guitar and Bvs, Matthew Waar - Bass and Bvs, Jonny Henderson - Organ and Bvs, Matthew Jones - Drums and Bvs

The Wildfire story continues….
I have been overwhelmed at the support that “Wildfire” has received since its release and I am eternally grateful to you- my family, friends and amazing, incredible fans for getting behind the music, listening to the songs, coming to the shows and sharing this journey with me. You are truly fantastic!
I am delighted to bring you this ‘Wildfire Deluxe Edition” featuring three brand new tunes that I am so excited to share and some alternate ‘almost unplugged’ versions of existing favourites that took on a life of their own in the studio. It of course includes the 12 original tracks from the first release and is an 18 track CD.
I hope you enjoy the songs as much as I have enjoyed making them for you.
