|Guns and Horses||Interview||Lights|
Ellie Goulding is radiant on the big stage, with piercing lights and full orchestration firing behind her starry pop tunes. Yet somehow, the British songwriter seems even larger than life when it's all taken awaythe production of her performance stripped to nothing but her unparalleled voice and a few instrumental accents. At a private session at The Bowery Electric, Ellie took the guitar and accentuating voices behind her to dazzling heights, revealing that the true power of her refrain rests in her bare vocal flourishes and harmonies. Playing a selection of songs from her debut album Lights, including the effervescent "Starry Eyed", Ellie left the room in awe of both her songwriting and the way her voice brings each track to another level. It's an inspiring, anomalous session, and definitely one you'll want to share with everyone you know.
