Eleanor McEvoy

Having released her 16th album “Gimme Some Wine” to rave reviews at the end of 2021, Eleanor McEvoy one of Ireland’s foremost songwriters is now back on the road following the release of her latest riveting single “South Anne Street

Her live show is spellbinding. She walks in a single pool of light, the stage set with an electric guitar, an acoustic guitar, violin, piano and a small amp. What follows has
been enthralling audiences around the world for decades.

McEvoy is the composer, co-performer and producer of
"A Woman's Heart”, the title track for the best-selling Irish album in Irish history. It features regularly on screen, most recently in 2019 in the award-winning TV show “Derry Girls”.

Her song
“Sophie”

was described by David Smith in
The Guardian
as
“an anthem that is touching, inspiring and consoling thousands of anorexic girls around the world”
It is used internationally in treatment centres to treat patients with eating disorders.

In February 2020, McEvoy completed
four sold out concerts at the National Concert Hall
and
National Opera House
where she performed with the RTE Concert Orchestra alongside Wallis Bird and Maura O’Connell for “A Woman’s Heart Orchestrated”, two days later she boarded a plane for a five-week Australian tour that ended abruptly at the onset of the Covid19 pandemic.

Upon her return she wrote “Scarlet Angels” inspired by the recent concerts with the RTE Concert Orchestra where McEvoy,
Wallis Bird
and Maura O’Connell
had all worn red on stage. She continued to write through-out lockdown, teaming up with Paul Brady to write ‘Found Out By Fate’
- a savage indictment on a cheating partner. Having herself had some wine at this point, McEvoy’s own quote on this one was to “Think twice before cheating on a songwriter”

Her most recent single ‘South Anne Street’
sets the scene for a song about meeting an ex at the corner of South Anne St and Grafton St. on a Tuesday afternoon and ending up in McDaid’s Pub. It is both absolutely specific and utterly universal and it has resonated with audiences both here and abroad.

“Through this fusion of bygone and modern, established and innovative, McEvoy creates something totally fresh but with a taste of the familiar…with, perhaps, a glass of red on the side”

Irish Times




“so appealing”
Irish Music Magazine “Song after song will resonate with you”
Hot Press Magazine
“superb… every beat, word and note earning it’s keep….it’s the sort of thing that gives popular music a good name”
John Creedon RTE Radio 1
“she captures a mood absolutely beautifully… bang on”
Ronan Collins RTE Radio 1

“South Anne Street” - that great song that so many people want to hear time and time again”
Alex Lester BBC Radio 2
“One of the few artists who can do no wrong whatsoever”
