At 24, Goulding has already secured substantial fame in England. Her very first studio album, 2010'sLights, debuted at number one on the U.K. chart, so fervent was her fanbase. As she took the stage, it became clear that no one, not even Goulding, could have anticipated the response from American fans on the first night of her tour.

Goulding’s crackling voice is capable of affecting a prostrate pose in the midst of the swirl that suggests the latter’s folk-tinged vulnerability. That’s most apparent on the stuttering synth-string thrum of “Guns and Horses’’ and a cover of Elton John’s “Your Song,’’ a sad number she somehow makes even sadder.

CC: On a different note, this is your first time coming over to America and doing a tour. What are some of your expectations for your tour here?
EG: I don’t know. I’m in Texas now and it’s been pretty straightforward so far. I think my first tour date will be a good decider or not and I’ll be able to a**** a reaction from people here. It’ll be an indicator for what I can expect.…

"I grew up listening to big pop songs with big choruses," she says. But Joni Mitchell is one of her major influences, and the song that first won her a singing competition was Tracy Chapman's "Baby Can I Hold You."
The album she made is an unintentional fusion of all of that, she says.

Late in the night, I caught most of Ellie Goulding's set, and the British dance-pop star can easily win over a crowd. The few studio songs I had heard hadn't totally wowed me, but live, with a pair of synths offering textures and a live drummer providing a kick, Goulding's likable personality seemed to be given…Continue

Goulding’ songs infuse heartfelt lyrics with catchy synths for an irresistible sound. Originally an acoustic singer-songwriter, the idea of pop music doesn’t scare Goulding. She has embraced electro-pop tunes, while retaining an earnestness in her lyrics that creates a honesty and intelligence that most of today’s pop music lacks. “I think…Continue

Goulding, from Hereford, England, has a classic British folkie's voice - the kind of tremulous soprano that evokes a wintry day on a fog-swaddled moor. But LIGHTS places her vocals and minor-key melodies against producer Starsmith's club-ready mix of synths and brisk, busy electro…Continue

Lights is a project that has taken on many forms since Ellie’s year plus time in the spotlight. She’s already a top-selling slash charting artist in the UK with BRIT Awards and BBC Awards under her belt. Her debut album in the UK (also titled Lights) arrived almost a year ago to the date. Then, at the close of 2010, she released Bright…Continue
