ELEANORE

<< back to the line up page

Eleanore is a charismatic singer/songwriter from Surrey whose album ‘Parlour Game’ of 11 self-penned tracks was released at the end of 2009.

She has been composing and performing since her early teens, working with a wide range of musical genres.

In 2004, she won a national song writing competition through Celador Productions for Channel 4 and in 2006, Eleanore was commissioned by SB Dance to compose a forty minute orchestral piece in four movements; a marriage of both Indian and Western influenced music, which she completed in two and a half months.  In 2008, Eleanore performed "asmakam the quest" with SB Dance at the Edinburgh Fringe Festival where it received a great review from the British Theatre Guide.

The piece was released as an album – her second release following her first single in 2007, "Feels so Good", an R’n’B collaboration with music producer Madman the Greatest.

In December 2008, Eleanore appeared in the title role in “The Baker’s Wife” (a musical by Stephen Schwartz & Joseph Stein) at the Electric Theatre in Guildford to four packed houses and in 2009 Eleanore reached the Grand National Final of Live & Unsigned.

Her most recent compositions take inspiration from heroes such as Jeff Buckley, Evanescence, Kate Bush and Bjork as well as her foray into Indian music.

The album ‘Parlour Game’ moves from fairytale waltzes and moody ballads to dramatic rock songs plus some latin and eastern influences in between, while catchy hooks pervade throughout.  The overwhelming feedback for the album so far has been how special it is.

On stage, Eleanore is supported by her band and guest string quartet.  An experienced and exciting live performer, Eleanore’s ability to cast a spell over her audience added to her enormous vocal abilities make for an exceptional show every time.
