Eleanor McEvoy is one of Ireland’s most accomplished female singer/songwriters. Respected as a fine multi-instrumentalist in both traditional and contemporary music, she is best known for writing “Only A Woman’s Heart”, the title track of an anthology album that’s gone on to be the best selling recording in Irish History. Eleanor’s strong Irish accent adds to her renditions of her quirky, perceptive songs, ranging from love ballads and story-telling to left-of-centre takes on the vagaries of life. Her song “Sophie” about a girl suffering anorexia has become an internet phenomenon with over 1,500,000 hits on YouTube. Never one to shy away from the big issues, her new album revisits some of her previous songs from past albums that have not been available as downloads, and a few new songs from live performances that have become favourites with her audiences here in Australia. Eleanor will be touring Australia in March/April 2014 to promote her new album, Stuff!
“Eleanor McEvoy appears to have done it all. Since first becoming a household name in Ireland over two decades ago, the Wexford-based, Dublin- born singer has journeyed from classical to folk, detouring via rock and pop. She’s equally comfortable as a jazz chanteuse, an acoustic troubadour and a singer-songwriter, whether solo or fronting a band. If Crowded House was fronted by a female, they’d probably sound something like this…” Colm O’Hare – Hot Press, March 5th 2013
