How did you meet Jake?
Jake contacted me via my artist page on Facebook after he heard my music on BBC Radio Introducing and asked if I was up for collaborating.
When did you start singing?
I’ve been singing songs since as far back as I can remember, but I started performing and gigging properly when I was 9 years old.
Who are your influences?
Tracy Chapman, Patti Smith, Suzanne Vega, Joni Mitchell, Alison Moyet, The Beatles, The Police, Lynden David Hall, Ian Dury, Ani Di Franco, Erykah Badu, Steel Pulse.. And soooo many more!

Probably ‘All I can Do’ or ‘Effortless’ from my debut album
What’s your favourite song in the whole world?
I couldn’t name one as I have so many favourites, but if I was to mention any it would most likely be ‘Woman’ by John Lennon or ‘The Promise’ by Tracy Chapman. Get me every time.

What’s next for Ellie Jamison?
I’d like to work with some more dance producers, maybe get some of my songs remixed or collaborate in general. I’m a bit mad for Drum and Bass and Hip Hop/ Rap too so I’d love to work with some more artists in those genres.
