Family and early life Edit
Ellie Gauld was born October 2nd, 1990, in a Lovian working-class family with already three children: Jonathan (b.1986), Martha (1988-1991), and Steven (b.1989). The father Humbert Gauld is a construction worker who splits his time between the quiet Lovian building sites and the Californian coastal cities. His wife, Patricia, has been a housewife since the birth of Martha in 1988. The couple's second child died of leucemia at the age of three.
After Ellie's birth, Patricia Gauld would give birth to two more children: Holly (b.1992) and Gilbert (b.1994).
When she was younger, she survived the Charleston circus fire.
Ellie attended school in Noble City. She enrolled Blackburn University in 2008, where she studies history.
Music career Edit
Together with Em Rothschild, Martha Van Ghent and Nicky van Huizen, Ellie founded Fox Force Four in October 2009, an all-female jazz improvisation ensemble. The band broke through nationally at the 2010 Jazz Portland event.
Gauld plays the saxophone, clarinet and bass clarinet. Although she used to, she no longer sings on some of the Fox Force Four tracks.
