    Delicate, bitter-sweet and soul searching are some of the words usually associated with the music of alt folk/rock quintet Ellen and the Escapades. Their upbeat and catchy debut single Without You, released on their own home grown label Branch Out Records, was lovingly packaged in hand stitched felt and greeted warmly by the likes of Steve Lamacq and Rough Trade in the summer of 2009. Since then, Ellens dusky, captivating vocals and honest lyrics have helped push the band to new heights, including winning Q Magazine/Glastonburys Emerging Talent Competition and playing a total of 5 stages at last years festival. Following that with more UK festival appearances including Larmer Tree and Summer Sundae, they then joined Paolo Nutini and Stornoway at the Pilton Party in September before selling out venues across the UK promoting their self-released EP Of All The Times. The band's recent support slots include Fanfarlo, Alessi's Ark and First Aid Kit, and Ellen and the Escapades are currently writing and recording material for their first album, and are in the middle of a busy festival season that has included appearances at Glastonbury, Lounge On The Farm and 2000 Trees Festival so far. 2011 is shaping up to be a great year for this wonderfully wholesome band. facebook.com/ellenandtheescapades soundcloud.com/ellen-and-the-escapades myspace.com/ellenandtheescapades
