Amy May Ellis grew up in the middle of the North York Moors. It was there, in a small venue called the Band Room, that she played her first shows, guesting for artists such as Michael Chapman, Alessi’s Ark, Hiss Golden Messenger, Tiny Ruins, Ryley Walker and Willy Mason.
Since 2018, Ellis has released a series of 4 EPs, each exploring an element; Weathered by Waves, We got Fire, Where my Garden Lies, and When in the Wind have all received support from BBC 6 Music, BBC introducing, Uncut Magazine and Rough Trade. They have also fuelled headline tours around the UK and Ireland and landed Ellis a spot at Brighton’s Great Escape festival.
Now based in Bristol, Ellis is recording her debut album, which is set for release on Lost Map Records in 2023.
