Full of sass and taking the power back from heartbreak, Elles' vocals sit beautifully on top of the blues driven guitar. 

"I love the expression 'when you like a flower, you just pluck it, but when you love a flower, you water it daily. The latter allows the flower to grow and blossom, whilst the former allows it to wither and die."" 

Elles says: 

"This song is written about someone who trampled all over my heart and I totally lost who I was in that relationship. And if I am being honest, I never actually walked away, so I decided to re-write that story 14 years later, and this time I am the one who walks away!"

Beneath The Neon Glow sees Elles intertwine British roots, Americana and blues across ten powerfully, uplifting tracks. 

"I might be new to some people, but I have been around for quite a long while. I'm not here for a flash-in-the-pan moment. I want a long-term career in music. 

"I love what I do. I love that I get to take it around the world. So if I can continue to do that, and just play to larger audiences and continue to grow, that's exactly what I'll do."

Elles Bailey makes an in-store appearance (Live & Signing) at Brighton Resident, on Wednesday 14th August 2024. Tickets on sale HERE.
