- Ellie Goulding's Bio & Pics
Ellie Goulding's debut album Lights (2010) experimented with genres including indie pop, synthpop, folktronica, and indietronica. Lights contained "sparkling pop with a folky heart and an electronic edge" and was noted as being infectious. The album incorporated "acoustic guitar" and "retro-synthpop" compared to that of Little Boots and La Roux, while the production contained "folkie origins under a welter of busily cycling synths and programmed beats". Ellie's second album Halcyon followed in the same vein, including genres such as Indie pop, synthpop, and dream pop. Goulding revealed that the album's musical direction had taken a "very dark and very weird" sound. She also stepped away from the electronic sound of her previous album and moved to a more tribal and anthemic sound containing a bit more piano and vocal.

Goulding states that she is influenced by a wide range of genres from R&B, electronica, heavy metal, folk, hip hop, pop and classical. She listed Beyoncé, Ani DiFranco, Imogen Heap, Björk, Joni Mitchell and Lauryn Hill as influences, as well as contemporaries such as Florence + The Machine, Marina and the Diamonds, Katy Perry, Lana Del Rey, Lady Gaga, Rihanna, and Owl City, stating that she is "blown away" by them. She also expressed admiration for rappers Kanye West, Drake, and Nicki Minaj. Goulding's musical style has been compared to that of Kate Nash, Meiko, Lykke Li, and Tracey Thorn.
