We quickly fell in love with Ellie Goulding back in 2009 and since then, everyone all over the world has too.

Since we first talked about Ellie the buzz about her music has grown.

Goulding is the second artist ever to be named the number one predicted breakthrough act of the year in the BBC’s “Sound of 2010”. She also won the Critic’s Choice Award at the BRIT Awards in the same year.

Her second studio-length album, Lights, was released in the UK last March and reached number 1 on the UK Album Charts. The US version was released just last week on Polydor Records and has already reached number one on the Top New Artist Album chart.

Last month, Ellie was nominated at the 2011 BRIT Awards for Best British Female Solo Act and Best British Breakthrough Act.

Her song, “Everytime You Go”,  was featured last year on the CW’s “Vampire Diaries”.  “Your Biggest Mistake” has also appeared in an episode of “The Inbetweeners”.

Here’s the video for Goulding’s song “Starry Eyed”

Ellie is currently performing at SXSW and then heading out on a short US tour until the middle of April. Make sure to check out her MySpace for dates and tickets because many of the shows are already sold out!
