Labelled an an "indie pop wunderkind" by Avro Telvanni, Cambridge-born 23 year old Ellie Dixon creates self-produced, punchy bops with groove and a sense of humour. Producing from her bedroom studio, she has created her own brand of self-aware alt-pop described by She Wolf as "pop music with brains". Dixon fuses her bespoke blend of indie pop, rap, jazz and R&B as she expresses life lessons and frustrations through witty lyrics and ear worm melodies. Influences include; Easy Life, Still Woozy, BENEE and Anderson .Paak while oozing with her own personality, creativity and a love for the unconventional. Both her musical versatility and self-made, joyous visuals have been catching the ears and eyes of many, landing her Spotify editorial play-listing, radio play on BBC Radio 1 and BBC 6 Music, and backing from CD Baby.
In the last year, Dixon has taken the online world by storm. With her following growing by 1000%, highlights include an invitation from BBC Radio 1 to record a live session at BBC Maida Vale, her music catalogue reaching 3 million total streams on Spotify, a featured BBC Radio 1 Introducing Track of the Week (Green Grass) and the opportunity to headline the BBC Introducing stage at this year's Latitude Festival and perform on the Big Top stage at Camp Bestival.
Dixon's latest self-produced EP is set to drop on October 22nd 2021.
