February 22nd, 2012  |  by Nels Thoreson   |  Published in Songs of the Day

Today’s “Featured Artist and Song of the Day” showcases Hereford, England’s own, Ellie Goulding, with her song, “Lights,” off her album, Lights, which was released through Polydor Records.  The album has received much deserved critical acclaim, and topped the UK Album Charts.  Goulding’s work spans many genres and she plays a number of instruments, including guitar, piano, drums, clarinet and tambourine.  The featured song has been remixed by many artists (Bassnectar, MK Charlee Dub, Max Gordon, Shook, and others), and has been played in many venues throughout the world.

Goulding also has an incredible cover of Elton John’s, “Your Song,” which shows her diversity as an artist.  That will be featured soon in an upcoming article of The Troubadour’s Road.  Goulding has been on a whirlwind of tour dates recently, and currently, has no upcoming tour dates, but when they become available, they’ll be published here.

These words find their place in the song, “Lights,”

“I had a way then losing it all on my own
I had a heart then but the queen has been overthrown
And I’m not sleeping now the dark is too hard to beat
And I’m not keeping up the strength I need to push me

You show the lights that stop me turn to stone
You shine them when I’m alone
And so I tell myself that I’ll be strong
And dreaming when they’re gone

‘Cause they’re calling, calling, calling me home
Calling, calling, calling home
You show the lights that stop me turn to stone
You shine them when I’m alone
…”
