A solo female singer-songwriter with a strong personality and a cutting-edge style, 21-year-old Ellie Goulding, brought up in Hereford, could fit in well with the current pop scene.

If Kate Bush, Bjork and Stevie Nicks shared a flat in Shoreditch in 2009, but were a little bit more sane, this noise would emerge. Goulding's distinctive high-wire voice carries passionate lyrics, occasionally being cut and spliced with club-friendly electro results.
