Labelled an an "indie pop wunderkind" by Avro Telvanni, Cambridge-born 22 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. Dedicating her time towards growing her online platform has seen her following sky rocket - in the last 6 months alone she has increased her following by 200k on Tik Tok and 12k on Instagram. She has been attracting attention for her highly engaging and personality-fuelled videos ranging from harmony layering to production challenges. She released her single 'Space Out!' in July 2020 which received overwhelming support and has now reached 225k Spotify streams. She then released her single 'Sucker' in February 2021 which has already had air play from BBC Radio 1, BBC 6 Music and featured on Spotify's 'New Pop UK' playlist. This is her second single in the run up to an EP dropping this summer.
