It’s difficult to compare Ellie Goulding to any other female in the music industry right now. She writes songs that are earnest and playful, a stark counterpoint to the rush of raw pop music that seems to have eclipsed sweet-natured story-telling. Her British accent adds a particular charm to her soft vocals. This girl's got a vibratto so unbelievably delicate it might as well be a hummingbird’s wings fluttering.

Ellie Goulding recently dropped a cover for ALT-J's "Tessellate." Check it out and learn more about Ellie Goulding as's Artist of the Week.
