X-Factor national finalist Ellice is a passionate, determined and gifted new country pop/rock singer, with an emotive style and wonderful voice. Since winning a local talent competition aged eleven, she has devoted the intervening years to developing her vocal capabilities and pursuing her dreams. In conjunction with playing gigs, concerts and charity events, she has also been devoting time to her full time education with additional studies in the performing arts. Hailing from Hereford, she is in the respected line of creative artists and singers that have begun their careers in this lovely Cathedral city, a diverse list that includes Ellie Goulding, The Misers, Pete Farndon, Martin Chambers & James Honeyman-Scott of The Pretenders, Mott The Hoople and Little Big Stuff.
The experience of being in the X-Factor boot-camp ultimately gave Ellice a new determination to never settle for less than the very best. “It was fun, but my heart has turned away from the glitzy attractions of show business and pop singing. I want to establish a more long-term career singing the music I love and that I’m passionate about; and I love different styles of country music. There are so many great artists that have influenced my singing and performing styles these past few years….. Miley Cyrus, Eva Cassidy, Kirsty Lee Cook, Faith Hill, Christina Aguilera, Mariah Carey. I am now finding my own voice, and expressing the music and songs that I love in my own way, and finding the unique artist within me. And I’m having great fun pursuing my dreams!”
