Elie Rees – I Dream of You

Last night I headed to my first ever ‘Open mic’ night, organised by featured artist today, Elie Rees. I’d seen Elie appear before and I was looking forward to seeing her appear again – and luckily enough she was first up. I really enjoy watching Elie, her songwriting has a real unique air, powerful with great lyrics. The Essex based singer songwriter has an album on the way very soon and I can’t wait to hear it – she’ll also be recording an exclusive for us at Belles and Gals (a song I was really taken with).

Although you wouldn’t say Elie is a country artist she certainly covers that base – describing herself as ‘creative, edgy and raw’ and ‘Blondie meets Fiona Apple’, which is one of the best descriptions I’ve ever read!

Here is Elie with a great cover of the folk song “I Dream of You” by John Doyle.

I’ll be featuring another artist from the night in the next few days. If you’re local to Chelmsford, head along to the next night – full details here
