We are delighted to reveal Ella Eyre as FAULT Magazine Issue 18′s opening feature for the ‘Sounds of 2014′ section. Ella’s soulful voice, bold style and energetic stage-presence encompasses everything it means to be RAW on and off the stage.
At just 20 years old, Ella Eyre is already making waves with her soulful voice, phenomenal stage presence, and bold style. A graduate of the BRIT School, she cut her teeth on tour with Rudimental, featuring on their no.1 single ‘Waiting All Night’ in 2013 …
FAULT: You’ve got a distinctive personal style, from your clothes to your already famous hair. What about the relationship between music and fashion?
Ella: It’s really interesting because my Mum was a fashion designer for about twenty years and so she’s always sort of forced clothing on me! I was a real tomboy so I’ve always just wanted to be comfortable, but also to look good. My motto is a kind of ‘simple but sexy.’
What do you want to say with the album? Are core themes starting to emerge?
I wrote my album over the course of three years so it’s a lot of growing up, and a lot of experiences that I had to deal with. As I said, it’s not that my experiences are more important than anyone else’s, I just want people to listen and relate and tune into the feeling of each track.
Your debut single ‘If I Go’ came out in July. Can you tell us a bit about it?
‘If I Go’ is basically about being with somebody and feeling caged in a way, or feeling that it’s not healthy. It was a question of me going, ‘this isn’t working at the moment, before I commit fully can I go away and do what I want to do, and come back to it…It’s not that I don’t want you now, it’s that I want you later. [laughs.]
