'Exquisite beauty offered by Ellie Wilson’s controlled violin’ Mojo Magazine
Ellie Wilson is an East London born and based composer/violinist, and member of ‘Britain’s most exciting new folk band’ (Uncut Magazine) and 4-time BBC Radio 2 Folk Award nominees, Stick In The Wheel. She is currently working on her debut album, with many of the works developed at a residency hosted by the Britten-Pears Foundation in the former home of composer Imogen Holst in Aldeburgh, Suffolk, and at home in her East London flat. Her compositions draw on contemporary classical, folk, post-rock, and electronica, with almost every sound created using just the violin.
