Eleanore on Eleanore

My music is very textured. I love strings, piano and layers of vocal harmonies - that's the way I hear it in my head. When I write my songs the words and melodies come to me and as I record them in to my computer I can also hear the accompanying instrumentation that I want to build around it all. Sometimes I even know which effects I want to use on my vocals and the kind of shape I want the song to have, maybe with an instrumental in the middle or a fade out at the end.

Over the past few years, I've also come to see that song lyrics can be a type of poetry and I now try harder and harder to write lyrics that have meaning and some kind of beauty.

I've been very lucky to find my producers Adam Pain and Roger Davis who, after a lot of resistance from me at the thought of allowing people into my music, completely understood where I was coming from and what I was trying to achieve. I've learnt that I can trust them with my songs and that letting people in can create even better things.

When it comes to putting songs on an album my main priority is that every song on there is good enough to be a single and something that I would love to listen to and that I'm proud to call mine.

I hope, as many artists do, that my music is definitive and that every track is obviously Eleanore.  I want to keep challenging my composition and vocal skills and pushing my own boundaries as I continue to create and perform my music.

Quantcast

"Parlour Game takes you on a journey into the magical world of Eleanore with tales of love, passion, lust and hope! It is deliciously dark in places with strong echoes of goth. Each song has been beautifully crafted into a small masterpiece, reminiscent of great artists such as Kate Bush, Bjork and Evanescence, and always remaining true to its author. I got the very distinct impression that although Eleanore draws influences from these formidable artists, her work always remains original, and somehow she manages to sound like Eleanore, rather than Bush, Bjork or Evanescence."
