After school, Ellie studied at the University of Kent at the Department of Political Science and English. She acted solely through her own knowledge, completely without any help.

A chic voice, lovely accent truth Englishwoman and boundless charm did their job.

Next came a serious longplay "Lights". He got to the first place of the British charts. Only in the UK alone, the album has spread almost 700,000 copies.
The single "Gunts and Horses" gave the world the opportunity to see a slightly different Golding. It even contains “country motifs”. A beautiful clip has strengthened the popularity of the album, and the already famous singer has become a world-famous star.

2010 was really eventful for Golding, because in November a cover version of Elton John's famous song “Your Song” was released.Critics are usually the most cruel to covers, but Ellie passed this test successfully.

The song "Lights" completed the album of the same name, which is the fifth in a single Elli single. After her release, Golding became known as the “hipster queen”, which is considered to be a very, very respectful nickname.

It is quite logical that after a year of such hard work, it might be necessary to pause, get some rest, but not at all to Ally. In early 2011, the singer announced that she had begun to record a new album. In addition, she created songs not only for herself, but also for Dayana Vickers, Gabriella Chilmi and some others.

It seemed to Ellie that for a long time she could not yet enter into a new relationship, but having met “him” she could not remain with the same opinion. In 2012, Golding publicly announced her relationship with a famous producer, DJ and musician Scrillex.

Ellie especially notes that he has a special sense of humor, very similar to her own, and this also plays a special role. But unfortunately, this relationship did not last long due to the fact that they lived on different continents, and therefore seldom were seen.
