Delicate, bitter-sweet and soul searching are some of the words usually associated with the music of alt folk/rock quintet Ellen and the Escapades. Their upbeat and catchy debut single ‘Without You’, released on their own home grown label Branch Out Records, was lovingly packaged in hand stitched felt and greeted warmly by the likes of Steve Lamacq and Rough Trade in the summer of 2009.

Since then, Ellen’s dusky, captivating vocals and honest lyrics have helped push the band to new heights, including winning Q Magazine/Glastonbury’s Emerging Talent Competition and playing a total of 5 stages. Following that with more UK festival appearances including Larmer Tree and Summer Sundae, they then joined Paolo Nutini and Stornoway at the Pilton Party in September before selling out venues across the UK promoting their self-released EP ‘Of All The Times’.
