Elles Bailey + Chantel McGregor
Straddling the worlds of Americana and the blues, Bristol-based Elles Bailey is a smokey voiced, human dynamo who has powered her way to the forefront of the British blues and roots scene in a career already feted with awards and acclaim, including topping her native genre charts: #1 in the Official Blues charts; #2 in the Official Americana charts; and #4 in the Official Independent Charts. In a landmark breakthrough for an independent artist, she also appeared on the RADAR of the UK Charts, reaching #11 in the mid-week album charts, and finishing just a handful of sales away from the UK’s Top 40 at #42. For a fully independent artist, without the clout of a major label-it’s one hell of an achievement.
She shares the bill with Yorkshire blues rocker Chantel McGregor, who has also drawn great critical acclaim, including Guitar World Magazine (USA) declaring her 2019 ‘Bury’d Alive’ as the 11th best guitar album of the decade.
