"This voice has every reason to find an international audience as broad and enthusiastic as she has found at home"
This quote from Nicki French Davis of the Irish Examiner perfectly describes the bright future that lies ahead for Irish singer/songwriter Elly O’Keeffe, whose unique and awe-inspiring vocal talent has captivated audiences both at home and abroad. Elly first made her mark on the Irish music scene at a very young age, singing in various venues around the country with her family band and giving her future fans the very first taster of her one-of-a-kind vocal stylings. From these early beginnings performing in local venues to her recent move to London where she is currently working with producer Joe Hirst on her second album, this young artist is finally ready to bring her remarkable talent to the worldwide stage.
While Elly's stunning vocal has earned comparisons to legendary chanteuses like Eva Cassidy and Janis Joplin, her,voice is immediately recognisable by her earthy tones and soulful melodies; two particular qualities that make her stand out from the crowd. The raw and untainted nature of her talent is emphasised further by the use of her natural accent during performances. Such honesty and purity is also reflected in this young artist's addictive personality and effortless charisma, which is evident both on and off stage
