Ellie Lawson, singer songwriter is the first to tour high street fashion stores.
Independent Folk-pop artist Ellie Lawson is touring 9 Quiksilver stores in the UK as part of her sponsorship deal with Quiksilver Women. Ellie is a new breed of artist who is working with a brand to release music and build her career in a non traditional way. The pioneering singer who was previously signed with Atlantic records in the USA was championed by chat show host Ellen De Generes and has tracks produced by William Orbit. She will be gathering the crowds by performing with her acoustic band in shop windows on her "Through the Glass" Tour
Ellie will be visiting The Quicksilver store in Brighton on the 12th June 2010, 13/14 Duke St, Brighton, 1pm and 5pm
The socially conscious singer-songwriter who is working with the charity War Child has her own label called 'Create your Own reality' and previously sold 25,000 records touring with the USA book retailer Barnes and Noble. She is currently selling albums and raising finance with her 'create my next album with me' campaign via her shop at http://www.ellielawson.com. Lawson's performances include opening for the BBC presenter Jimmy Doherty's festival 'Harvest at Jimmy's Farm' last September in Suffolk where KT Tunstall and Jose Gonzalez headlined. She has also previously played at the Abbey Road studios as part of the Brit awards and performed on the Ellen DeGeneres show where Ellen predicted live on air that Ellie would become 'the hugest, hugest star.' Gibson are proud to support Ellie Lawson who plays an EJ-200 acoustic guitar and we wish her every success with the imminent Quiksilver tour dates.
