Elle Hayes


Elle has been singing from a very early age performing for all of her toys and friends on a daily basis. Taking part in musicals and plays throughout her school years, enjoying the performing and singing, and assisting backstage with props/costumes etc, but soon realised that theatre was not where she belonged and that singing was her real desire.

She started jamming with friends from the age of 18, and was encouraged by her family to apply to a music course. In 2002 she registered at the Academy of Contemporary Music in Guildford, studying contemporary vocals, music theory and harmony, live performance, aural perception, technical studies and business. Elle qualified with a merited Higher Diploma and moved to South London.

Elle went on to provide session vocals for artists, recording lead and backing vocals, gigging with local groups and attending any and every open mic night she could get to. She joined the team at UpTempo music shop in 2008, working the shop floor and teaching. Shortly after this she and her family moved to Oxted.

In 2009 she assisted Matt in creating and setting up Idol Hands Music & Design Ltd, and soon after began teaching performance and vocals. From here Elle has continued her work as a session singer, recording vocals for Moonshine & Molly’s debut album Timeline, delivering backing vocals for local bands Randy & the Rockets and Moonshine & Molly.

Now our full time Manager, she is travelling all over the country gigging with girl trio The Lovettes, gigging acoustic duo Manhattan & Mary Jane, and vintage covers duo The Whiskey Sours.
