Unshakeably British, L. is singer songwriter Ellie Thompson whose music combines a heady mix of self-confidence and endearing vulnerability that few artists can effectively convey.
Having grown up on the Isle of Wight with a brief spell in Spain music has always been L.'s passion, she spent her later teenage years travelling the world, honing her talents by playing open mic nights wherever she could. On her return to the UK L. made the break for London where she has spent the last five years studying vocals and songwriting.
With experience gigging all over the UK, L. travelled to New York in October 2015 to spend a month playing a range of gigs across the city, culminating in her headlining a show at Greenwich Village venue The Path Cafe. She followed this success with the release of her debut single 'Her Majesty' on 3rd May 2016 before going on to play at this summer's world famous Isle of Wight Festival with her band. Her second single 'Our Time' is out now. L. is following the release of her second single with a return to the studio to write and record new material. Exciting new music is on the way!
A huge thanks to all the radio stations and blogs so far who have shown support for my music. Here's a little selection...
BBC Radio - BBC Introducing
L.'s second single Our Time gained support from the lovely Bridgitte Tetteh at BBC Radio in Berkshire, who described the single as a "big anthemic pop tune". L. was also interviewed about the single by Bridgitte in November, you can listen in below.
Vibe FM - Watford
Vibe FM in Watford have also supported L's latest single Our Time. Big thanks to Laura Alexadra for the spin! She says she "loves that tune"
the dutch guy
The Dutch Guy was the first blog to write about my music, describing my debut single Her Majesty as "Lasting, Lingering, Light-hearted, Likeable and makes this sister extremely Loveable..!"
