Eleanor McEvoy is one of Ireland’s most accomplished female singer/songwriters.

Respected as a fine multi-instrumentalist in both traditional and contemporary music, she is best known for writing “Only A Woman’s Heart”, the title track of an anthology album that’s gone on to be the best selling recording in Irish History.

Eleanor’s strong Irish accent adds to her renditions of her quirky, perceptive songs, ranging from love ballads and story-telling to left-of-centre takes on the vagaries of life.

Her song “Sophie” about a girl suffering anorexia has become an internet phenomenon with over 1,500,000 hits on YouTube. Eleanor's one-woman show at Humph Hall is part of her tour of Australia in May/June 2013.

Here is what Maverick Magazine said about her CD "I'd rather go blonde":

Absolutely stunning album has really blown me away!

The arrangements throughout offer such a variety of styles, as does the lyrical content… This absolutely stunning album has been a real find – one of the most compelling female singer-songwriters I’ve heard in a long time!
