Described by Joe Duffy on Christmas Eve as ‘The Woman who gave her Heart to the Nation’,

Eleanor continues her GIRL IN A BLACK CAR TOUR to coincide with The April release of her new album If You Leave…

 

Her performances are intimate, emotional, uplifting affairs in which she explores soul, love and humour, using own compositions and interpretations from other songbooks, with her unique voice and beautiful playing.

 

Formerly a session musician, including a long stint with The NSO, she decided whilst, with The Mary Black Band, that she should cash in the savings and develop her own career.

 

One week her life changed. Mary”s label owner heard Eleanor play a self-penned song that would give a name and title track to their planned all woman compilation album… ‘A Woman’s Heart’

Simultaneously she was signed to Geffen where her eponymous album went on to sell 250,000 copies. Precious Little was a Billboard hit and Sophie has become a worldwide focus and comfort to millions of young people with eating disorders.

 

Her most recent album Alone is a collection of her best-loved songs performed solo.

Reviews:

Hi Fi News ‘The intimacy is almost embarrassing, so personal the delivery. You hear the breath leave her mouth, fingers on frets – musicians will delight in identifying each make of instrument. Oh! I think I’m in love.’

UNCUT  “Stripped down and straight to the heart”

 

RockNReel****..And it’s another excellent album from Eleanor with hooks that stick in your mind after a couple of hearings and songs that raise a wry smile.

MAVERICK MAGAZINE*****Absolutely stunning album has really blown me away! 

 

Irish Times “Mc Evoy's facility with everything from Tex-Mex country to straight up three-chord trickery is a timely reminder of what sets a musician apart: a hunger for exploration and a deep-seated talent for exploring the darker corners of both music and life. “****

 

Truck and Driver album of the month "McEvoy sounds like the sort of woman who might greet you with a bottle of red one night and a rolling pin the next". *****
