From the ELLE Interview:

“I suppose it’s a reflection of how my life has been,” says singer-songwriter Ellie Goulding of the breathy, sugar-coated edge of her electro-folk-pop hybrid. Growing up in bucolic Hereford, England, “all I had was my guitar,” says the 25-year-old, whose main venue was folk night at the local coffeehouse. Spotted by a scout at a music competition at her university, Goulding moved to London and fell into “a whole new world of electronic music.” The blitz that followed was literally anxiety attack inducing (“My heart just wouldn’t stop pounding,” she says): Her first effort, Lights, was the UK’s biggest and fastest-selling debut album of 2010; fan Prince William asked her to serenade his nuptials; and by 2011, she was playing sold-out arenas on tour with Katy Perry. Her in-the-works second album will be more vocals-centric, orchestral, and “a lot more raw,” Goulding says. “Everything came so quickly the first time around, I think I found it hard to deal with. Now I’m ready to smash it.”—Maggie Bullock
