Eli Cripps Eli Cripps Manchester This British-born, African-raised singer is nothing short of eclectic. Her influences range from musical poets such as Leonard Cohen and the ‘First Lady of Song’ Ella Fitzgerald to John Legend’s soulful sounds and Femi Kuti's afrobeats/jazz fusion. Following her recent journey on BBC’s The Voice UK, Eli is currently working on her debut album and is set to release it in 2017. Eli describes music as her “first love, last love and all the loves in-between”. If you like what you hear, spread the word! As she says 'Happy Listening!'
