‘CLOSE’ SINGLE PRE LAUNCH
Dublin singer songwriter ELLYD will be returning to Whelan’s to play her first headline show on what promises to be a beautiful night of original music.
Following on from her successful EP ‘Lighthouse’ earlier this year, the alternative pop artist will be airing the first play of her highly anticipated new single ‘Close’ at this intimate show.
As well as the first official sneak peak of her soon to be released new track, ELLYD will also be performing some of her hit songs to date as well as some new unreleased material.
The singer, whose voice has been compared to the sultry haunting vocals of Gemma Hayes & Skye Edwards, first honed her talent by touring across Europe while also becoming a regular on the Irish music circuit.
After many years on the Irish music scene, she released her debut solo EP ‘Rise’ reaching number 8 in the iTunes charts.
Following the success of her first release, ELLYD has played some of Ireland’s biggest festivals and top venues including Electric Picnic, The Secret Village Festival, Battle of the Lake Festival, The Button Factory, Whelans and The Workmans Club.
Her last EP ‘Lighthouse’ gained huge airplay on local and national radio including on RTE Radio One and Today FM’s ‘Ed’S Songs of Praise’.
Tickets for the gig will be available from eventbrite.ie priced €8 or can be purchased for €10 at the door on the night.
“Following the success of ‘Rise’, the alternative-pop artist released her first single of 2017 called lucky on 7th April. For her first material since that EP, ‘Lucky’ is that wrap up her most confident and memorable song yet in 80s pop atmospherics”. Nialler9
“ELLYD released her new EP ‘Lighthouse’ in January 2018 accompanied by an Irish Tour. 2018 is promising to be a fantastic year for Ms ELLYD. With a unique voice that has been likened to Blondie’s Debbie Harry meets Irish Songstress Gemma Hayes”, the singer’s wide vocal range and hooky melodies along with her uncompromising stage presence have made her stand out from the musical crowd.” The Irish Daily Mirror
