Elly O' Keeffe with guest Dan O' Keeffe
A voice that is as haunting as it is uplifting and that inspires in the same breath as it renders you speechless is a rare and priceless entity. It is also something that Irish singer/songwriter Elly O'Keeffe can be proud to call her own.
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 actively pursuing her music career, this young artist is 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 distinguishable 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.
Elly's folk-based brand of music has developed massively since she first began writing in 2006. Although her debut album 'When We Live' gained recognition and acclaim with radio DJs and music lovers in Ireland, her upcoming EP promises to showcase her development both as a musician and a skilled, insightful songwriter, who is undoubtedly set to become one of the most recognisable vocal talents of our time.
