EDITORS’ NOTES

In 2013 Brighton’s Elli Ingram gained a following online with a smoldering cover of Kendrick Lamar’s “Poetic Justice.” Now she’s found a sound very much her own. Think: late-night jazz-club soul delivered from the cool kid at school. Much like Amy Winehouse, she’s an old soul with a fresh, relatable lyrical honesty. “Table for Two” tells a raw and impassioned tale of unrequited love, the smooth R&B of “Better Alone” is complemented by some even smoother sax, and “Sleeping Pill” is sharply punctuated with sass.

About Elli Ingram

R&B vocalist Elli Ingram, a native of Brighton, England, gained the music industry's attention with a smoldering cover of Kendrick Lamar's "Poetic Justice." Uploaded to YouTube in January 2013, she followed it that July with an impressive EP, the free digital download Sober, released through Chase & Status' MTA label with each production from either Felix Joseph or Joseph in tandem with Aston Rudi. Ingram toured with Chase & Status and was featured on the duo's album Brand New Machine. Signed to Island in the U.K., she subsequently released a three-track EP, another short-form showcase for her smooth but strong, vulnerable but swaggering style. Made in collaboration with Joseph and Rudi, it was titled The Doghouse. ~ Andy Kellman
