Elly Jackson rose to popularity as the lead singer-songwriter for the English synth-pop band, La Roux. Elly formed la Roux with producer/keyboardist Ben Langmaid in 2006. The combination of the splendid duo, Elly and Ben, made it big in the industry within a short time.
The first ever single La Roux released was Quicksand in December 2008. Then, they released their next single, In For the Kill in March 2009. In For the Kill was a big hit and gained the duo more considerable value of recognition and a greater audience.
It was then when the band decided to release their self-named debut album, “La Roux” in June 2009. The album peaked the chart of the best album and was certified with Platinum from British Phonographic Industry.
The turning point was after Ben decided to leave the band. It was a harsh time for Elly as she professionally began her career in music from La Roux itself. However, she didn’t give her guts up and released their second album in July 2014. Many songs from the album were chartbusters in the time.
Although Elly has time and again mentioned that she doesn’t get her actual due for the greater hit of her songs, the fact that she has marked some of the greatest ones already makes one believe the fact that she has already garnered a massive amount of net worth.
