Ellie Keegan – (Janice Long Presents…….)
Singer songwriter Ellie Keegan, is from Nottingham, currently in her second year at LIPA in Liverpool. She will be performing as part of the new Janice Long Presents section in our Folk On The Dock (Dock Stage). Following a busy summer, playing at highly acclaimed festivals such as Splendour, Y Not & Riverside Festival, Ellie is now focusing on releasing an E.P, that combines eclectic, soulful-indie tones, raw lyrics & melodies, creating an interesting yet familiar sound for the audience to hook onto.
Backed by BBC Introducing, Ellie has been able to use these connections to take her place in the music industry.
