Reading & Leeds 28-30 August 2009  

Ellen and the Escapades

Ellen and the Escapades are an alternative folk quintet, picked by BBC Introducing in Leeds after they uploaded some cracking tracks. They released their first single Without You earlier this year on their homegrown record label, Branch Out Records. Having been played by Alan Raw on BBC Radio Leeds, it was picked up by Steve Lamacq on BBC Radio 2, and Tom Robinson on BBC 6 Music.

All five members of the band studied at Leeds College of Music. Fans of Bob Dylan and Carole King as well as modern acts like The Coral, their sound is nostalgic, but not old fasihoned.
