After signing with Polydor Records, Goulding released her debut extended play, An Introduction to Ellie Goulding (2009).[1] Her debut studio album, Lights (2010), debuted at No. 1 on the UK Albums Chart and was later reissued as Bright Lights, spawning three successful singles: a cover of Elton John's "Your Song", "Starry Eyed", and "Lights". Her second studio album, Halcyon (2012), was preceded by the lead single "Anything Could Happen"; a repackaged edition of Halcyon, titled Halcyon Days (2013), produced the single "Burn", which became her first No. 1 single in the UK. She then collaborated with DJ Calvin Harris on two singles: "I Need Your Love" and "Outside".

After the release of her third studio album, Delirium (2015), and its lead single "On My Mind", Goulding earned a Grammy Award nomination for her single "Love Me like You Do", which was recorded for the soundtrack of Fifty Shades of Grey (2015).[2] She subsequently took a hiatus from 2016 to 2020, struggling with an anxiety disorder and media scrutinity over false claims on her personal life.[3][4] Her fourth studio album, Brightest Blue (2020), became her third album to top the UK Albums Chart, and her fourth consecutive RIAA–certified album. It spawned several singles, including the hits "Close To Me", "Sixteen" and "Hate Me".[5] She reunited with Harris on the single "Miracle", which spent eight non-consecutive weeks at No.1 on the UK Singles Chart in 2023.[6] Goulding's fifth studio album, Higher Than Heaven (2023), debuted at No. 1 in the UK, her fourth chart-topping album, making her the British Female with the most Number 1 Albums in UK history, tying with Adele.[7]

Goulding is the recipient of numerous accolades, including three Brit Awards (including the prestigious BRIT Billion Award), a Billboard Music Award, 17 BMI London Awards, and two Grammy Award nominations.[8] She was honored with a Decade Award by the Variety Hitmakers Awards in recognition of a decade of "undeniable hits".[8] TIME100 honored her with the Impact Award for using her platform to protect the environment.[9][10] Goulding has sold more than 27 million albums and 216 million singles, and amassed 43 billion streams worldwide,[11] making her one of the most successful British female singers of the 21st century.[12][13]

Early life

Elena Jane Goulding was born on 30 December 1986[14] in Hereford, Herefordshire, England to Arthur and Tracey Goulding, and was brought up in the small village of Lyonshall, in Herefordshire. She has a brother, Alex, and two sisters, Isabel and Jordan. When she was five years old, her parents separated.[15] Afterwards, she had little contact with her father, a funeral director.[16] Goulding and her siblings were raised by their mother on a council estate,[17] with Goulding describing the family as "super poor".[18] She stated that she has a "difficult" relationship with her mother.[16]

Goulding began playing the clarinet at age nine and learning guitar at age 14. She attended Lady Hawkins' High School in Kington, Herefordshire and, by the age of 15, started writing songs. She took A levels in English, politics, drama and music, and passed the first 3 with "A" grades but failed music.[19][20] After enrolling on a degree in Drama and Theatre Studies at the University of Kent and remaining until her final year, she met Jamie Lillywhite. He became her manager and introduced her to the producer Starsmith, who would become her chief collaborator and the primary producer of Lights.[21]

I play the guitar and I play the bass and piano and then I'm singing a lot of vocals. It's very classically influenced because I love classical music. There's a lot going on, it's a big soundscape and one big film. The second half is my kind of alter ego songs."[124] On 21 May she released single "Power" and on 30 June single "Slow Grenade" with Lauv.

Björk performing
Goulding has listed musicians such as Joni Mitchell (left) and Björk (right) as her influences.

Goulding's music has been described as electropop,[144][145] synth-pop,[146] indie pop[147] and folktronica.[148][149] She is a soprano[150][151][152] and is noted for her high piercing vibrato, breathy tone and emotive delivery.[153][154] In a review for Halcyon, Neil McCormick of The Daily Telegraph described her voice as "something special", continuing; "Her tremulous vibrato and slightly hoarse timbre have the feel of something primal and folky, her birdlike high notes conveying a childlike wonder while darker tones imply ancient depths of sorrow. She sings like she is strung out on the melody, warbling from a place of desperate emotion. It really is that rarest and perhaps most accidental of gifts: an original voice". He then continued in regards to her vocal layering stating, "producer Jim Eliot puts her voice front, back and centre, banking up choral walls of vibrato, fashioning hooks from cut up samples of chirrups and chants, and creating unusual textures from trills and warbles".[155] During an interview with Carson Daly, Goulding described her own voice saying;

I think sometimes it sounds like my voice is like, out of control... I have to really control it because it just kind of goes everywhere. Like, sometimes stuff comes out that I don't expect. A lot, actually [...]. It's so funny because my favourite thing to do is imitate opera singers, but I've never had a singing lesson. Oh, I had a lesson just to teach me how to breathe better, but I never really had a singing lesson.[156]

Will Hermes of Rolling Stone compared her voice to that of Dolly Parton, stating that her upper register was dazzling whilst also complementing her skill in vocal multi-layering.[157] Megan Farokhmanesh of Paste magazine stated "Goulding has a lovely voice, but occasionally her soprano-strung vocals hit a note that rubs the eardrums the wrong way" although she praised Goulding overall for her "talent for gorgeous high heart-tugging vocals".[152]

Goulding has listed Joni Mitchell, Kate Bush, and Björk as influences, as well as contemporaries such as Amy Winehouse, Katy Perry, Lady Gaga, Beyoncé, Burial, Taylor Swift, Bon Iver, and Rihanna.[158][159][160][161][162][163] She also expressed admiration for rappers Kanye West, Drake and Nicki Minaj.[164] Goulding's musical style has been compared to that of Kate Nash, Lykke Li and Tracey Thorn.[165]

Goulding's debut album Lights (2010) experimented with genres including indie pop, synthpop, folktronica and indietronica. The album contained "sparkling pop with a folky heart and an electronic edge" and was noted as being infectious.[166] 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".[167] Goulding toured the United Kingdom with American folk singer Lissie in 2010.[168][169] Goulding's second album Halcyon followed in the same vein, including genres such as indie pop, synthpop and dream pop. She 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.[170]

Personal life

She dated English radio DJ Greg James in 2010. Their relationship ended in 2012 after 18 months together.[171] In the same year, after collaborating on a song called "Bittersweet" for the Twilight: Breaking Dawn Part Two soundtrack, Goulding started dating DJ Skrillex. The two split nine months later, citing the long distance nature of their relationship.[172] Goulding later was in a relationship with actor Jeremy Irvine. They broke up in August 2013.[173] Goulding was in a relationship with Dougie Poynter of McFly between 2014 and 2016.[174]

On 7 August 2018, Goulding and her boyfriend Caspar Jopling announced their engagement.[175][176] The couple were married at York Minster on 31 August 2019[177][178] and Goulding was baptised in order to get married.[179] Jopling is the grandson of former Conservative MP Michael Jopling.[180] In February 2021, Goulding announced that she and Jopling were expecting their first child.[181] She gave birth to a son in April 2021.[182][183] In February 2024, Goulding and Jopling announced their separation.[184][185]

Goulding's best friend and personal assistant is Hannah Suzanne Lowe; the song "Army" was dedicated to Lowe and to Goulding's fans.[186][187] On Michael McIntyre's Big Show, she revealed that she is also close friends with Princess Beatrice of York.[188]


Goulding ran the inaugural Nike Women Half Marathon in Washington, D.C. on 28 April 2013, earning a time of 1:41:35.[189][190]

Goulding has spoken several times about her experience with mental health conditions. In 2016, she discussed panic attacks caused by the studio environment that prevented her from working.[191] In 2017, she discussed ongoing confidence issues and severe anxiety she had experienced. She spoke of an increased confidence within herself which reduces the nervous flutters she experiences.[192] She has said that a fitness regime and boxing at the gym has helped her overcome panic attacks and anxiety.[193] In December 2023, whilst guest editing the Today programme, she revealed that she had suffered from post-natal depression following the birth of her son in 2021.[194]

Public image

Goulding's personal life has been highly subject of intense media scrutiny, as well a victim of constant false rumours spread by British tabloids, which has affected her public image and her mental health.[196] Goulding stated that the media coverage of her life felt like "being strapped to a space shuttle".[197]

After the release of the song "Don't" by Ed Sheeran, Goulding was rumoured to be the subject person behind the lyrical content, which Goulding denied multiple times, clarifying that she has never dated Sheeran.[198][199] The media coverage and subsequent slut-shame received over the false claims, lead Goulding to step out from the spotlight on a five-year gap.[200] She has expressed her disappointment and frustration with the unfounded allegations, stating: "I was made to feel like a terrible person and I really struggled with that because I know I'm not."[201][202]

In 2024, Goulding released a statement on her Instagram stories condemning the false narratives surrounding the end of her marriage, calling out the tabloids for violating her privacy which has damaged her mental health,[203] she denounced the several unethical practics that the media has played to get unwarrented information on her, including paying locals from Costa Rica to snitch information on her.[204] Goulding also opened up about becoming a "paranoid wreck" after being contestly stalked "over, and over" by an older man, as well having to deal with a male paparazzi with "a long lens camera wrapped on a towel".[203] She concluded her statement saying that she "never asked for this level of intrusion".[203] Goulding confirmed on her X account that she knows the identity of her stalker.[205]

Other ventures

SERVED cocktails

Goulding acquired a significant stake in premium British hard seltzer brand SERVED for an undisclosed sum in June 2021.[206] Goulding said she was attracted to the brand due to it being based in her childhood home of Herefordshire, as well as for the brand's eco-friendly ethos.[207]

In July 2022, the Advertising Standards Authority (ASA) banned a series of Facebook posts from Goulding promoting SERVED hard seltzer. Goulding's posts claimed the drink was low in calories and contained no sugar, which the ASA ruled were not permitted nutrition claims for alcohol products.[208]

In January 2023, SERVED announced that it had entered into a partnership with Morrisons part of the supermarket's ‘Growing British Brands’ accelerator programme, which aimed at promoting "innovative and sustainable British producers". SERVED products are now available for sale 498 Morrisons stores, as well as listings in other parts of the business including Morrisons.com, and wholesale channels like Amazon.[209] Later that year, SERVED also launched a series of Ready To Drink cocktails, including Mojito, Passion Fruit Martini, and Piña Colada flavours.[210]

She said, "It's that stigma of what a homeless person is — they abuse drugs or abuse alcohol. It's just not true, some people come from very normal backgrounds, very normal situations and something goes wrong. It can happen to all of us."[222] As a patron of the Marylebone Project, Goulding attended the opening of a 24-hour drop-in centre for homeless women in London in November 2021.[223]
