Eleanor Nelly is a young singer songwriter from Liverpool who has created a quiet little following around the town gigging regularly.  Her influences are far and wide and include My Chemical Romance, The Hummingbirds, Slash, Billy Joel and Johnny Cash! Her sound is a mix of Folk, Country and Blues and is surely heading for big success.

I first reviewed Eleanor in a mini review a few years ago after seeing her performing Acoustic tracks on BAY TV, a Liverpool based channel.  Just her and her guitar oozing with confidence and such an accomplished performer.  I did say at the time she reminded me of an Eva Cssidy/Alanis Morissette hybrid telling her songs in a unique way.

Gigging regularly and being managed by her mum she has appeared in many festivals picking up fans and follwers and awards such as Knowsley Rising Star in 2014 and the Liverpool International Music Festival Academy awarded her as "the one to watch" in 2015 and "most ready artist" in 2016.  She is certainly a very talented lady.

Now signed to Decca Records, Eleanor has just released her debut single with more music to follow on an E.P. later in the year.  "Polaroid" is a sweet, beautiful song and reminds me a little of Kate Bush and Tori Amos.  The vocals are pure but strong, and the minimal guitar is a lovely accompaniment to this lilting ballad.  I look forward to new music from this lady.
