2019 was a hell of a year for the super-smoky-voiced, hard-working, far-touring chanteuse Elles Bailey. On 8th March, she dropped her eagerly-anticipated second album ‘Road I Call Home’ to rave reviews, with the album charting in the Official UK Country Charts & Americana charts, gaining over 1.9 million streams since its release and reaching No.1 on the Amazon Blues Bestseller chart Like its chart-topping predecessor, ‘Road I Call Home’ features co-writing contributions from high-calibre collaborators, including British hit-making legend and Ivor Novello Award winner Roger Cook, storied Memphis and Nashville giant Bobby Wood, as well as Dan Auerbach (of Akron, Ohio powerhouses The Black Keys) on the infectious ‘Little Piece of Heaven’ which has been awarded ‘Song of the Year’ at the 2020 UK Americana Awards. As a self-confessed ‘rolling stone’ - Elles genuinely does call ‘the road’ home. She’s continued her wide-ranging headline touring throughout the UK and Europe and was also special guest support for Grammy Award winner Mike Farris, Martin Harley, The Kris Barras Band and King King. 2018/19 has also seen Elles Bailey move up the festival listings becoming a featured artist at key festivals including Black Deer, Swing Wesplaar, Ramblin’ Man Fair, & The GB R&B Festival. She also headed stateside for the International House Of Songs Summit in Arkansas and played Nashville’s Americana Fest. 2020 sees Elles touring the UK in March, Germany in April and playing many more international stages including taking to the high seas for the Joe Bonamassa ‘Keeping the Blues Alive at Sea’ cruise alongside the man himself, Joe Bonamassa, King King, Samantha Fish, Walter Trout and many more. She’s also picked up 3 UK Blues nominations 2020 for Artist of the Year, Band of the Year, & Album of the Year. “Absolutely Superb” Bob Harris BBC Radio 2

Striking six-part harmonies, energetic rhythms, catchy songs, and a fiercely formidable live act – Morganway have made quite the impression on the UK’s rising Americana scene. This Americana rock band is “like no other band out there right now…reminiscent of Fleetwood Mac” (Entertainment Focus). The band released their self-titled debut album in August 2019 to widespread acclaim (including praise from Whispering Bob Harris). Their single ‘Let Me Go’ won Classic Rock’s Track of The Week, followed by a string of successful summer festivals (Glastonbury, Black Deer and Millport Country to name a few), and a sell-out national tour. They were described by Maverick Magazine as “One of the best and most exciting prospects to emerge in a long time.” 2021 saw the band sign with booking agent Midnight Mango and win ‘Best Group’ at the British Country Music Awards. With the release of brand new music and their most extensive UK tour yet, 2022 promises to be an even bigger year for Morganway, joining and celebrating the resurgence of a live music scene we've all been waiting for.
