Ellie & Nikon 

We are an acoustic duo obsessed with all things tie-dye.  Bringing you music with a dash of colour, a sprinkle of quirk and a heap load of happiness. 


We formed as Ellie & Nikon back in 2014 and have been writing together ever since. In 2016, Gabrielle Aplin (no.1 selling artist) found us on YouTube through our song ‘Oh Sally’. We played a few gigs alongside her and other great artists like Hudson Taylor, Orla Gartland and Hannah Grace.

We went on to record our debut EP ‘Devil’s Game’ which has four tracks: Oh Sally, Jerry, I Don’t Need Your Rhythm and Devil’s Game. We recorded this mostly at home, self-funded it all and released as an independently 31.8.2018. 

We have been blown away by the support and reaction to it.

We were 37th in the best-selling pre-order chart on iTunes prior to release. Then, we peaked at number 7 in the iTunes singer-songwriter chart and 102 in the iTunes all-genres albums chart.


Our second EP 'Only look back if it drives you on'

(Release date: 24.4.2020) has another four tracks. 

In This Life, Throw Me In, Still Searching and Just a Little Slow.

Only look back if it drives you on:

  • Number 3 in iTunes singer-songwriter chart

  • Number 89 in iTunes all-genre albums chart

  • Number 5 in iTunes best-selling pre-order chart

  • Featured as number one on singer-songwriter pre-orders

Our third EP 'Feeling Like December'

(Release Date: 3rd December 2021) was a winter EP containing some Christmas songs! We dedicate this release to our Uncle Gary who sadly passed away too soon. We are really proud of these songs.

Thank you to everyone who continues to support us!

Our whole ethos is to be who you are and be colourful.

This is why we wear tie dye.

Lots of love, Ellie & Nikon :) xx
