Bio

My father brought home my first microphone when I was a child and my brother and I would put on shows for anyone who would watch. My mother’s a teacher and my father, despite his struggles, loves us very much. I have early memories of Mum sitting by the piano and listening to Dad play, as well as me standing on Dad’s feet while we’d dance to Louis Armstrong and Annie Lennox. We moved from Sydney to Canberra before I was in high school and I call Canberra home still.

I feel/express music so much in my body and was given opportunities for this in dance classes and communities growing up. I started writing songs around the same time, sometimes at the piano, sometimes not. Other women, femininity and nature empower me.

Pronounced ay-lee, Eleanor Ailie’s first single Lion, from an awaited 5-track EP, garnered radio attention from stations such us TripleR, 4ZZZ and Radio Adelaide. Playing support slots for artists such as Winterbourne and KIAN, the EP is due to be released 22 November.

I hear glimpses of Vera Blue in this one - delicate and ethereal, yet powerful and raw. Overall it's a stunning serving of indie pop.
