Elli Ingram has won over our hearts with her honest song writing and advanced, powerful voice. Watch her dreamy live version of Better Alone below.
Better Alone, taken from Elli Ingram’s debut album Love You Really, was co-written by Jordan Rakei.
Elli developed her impressive vocals in her bedroom, then gigged in her hometown of Brighton. Drawing comparisons to Amy Winehouse and Adele, she grew up in a musical house: her dad performing in a classic rock cover band, her mum listening to Joni Mitchell, and her sister playing the piano.
Now, having toured Europe with Chase & Status and sung to a crowd of more than 10,000 at Glastonbury, she says the stage is where she feels most at home: “It’s the best feeling. I feel relaxed and safe in a weird sort of way. Especially when it’s dark and you can’t really see anyone and it’s just me. I love it.”
