Bio

I'm a singer/songwriter and performer from Adelaide, South Australia who has been singing/performing and dancing since the age of 4. I have been writing songs since 2015, releasing 2 songs on Spotify; "Cya", produced by Logan Watt (from Kuji Koo) with over 23,000 streams and "Left Behind" with with over 99,000 streams. I have worked with other artists and producers such as Brice Young (from Pinkish Blu) and was granted money from Northern Sound System by Nick O'Connor (from Heaps Good Friends) to produce and release music as well as promotion and photoshoots.

in 2017 I was awarded a scholarship to attend Berklee College of Music's 5 Week Summer Program in Boston, Massachusetts. It was there that I had the opportunity of a lifetime to develop my musical capabilities as well as discovered an even deeper love, appreciation and passion for music. The music and culture in this environment inspired and continues to inspire my writing today including in songs such as "Cya".

As someone with such a large family (dad is one of 9 and mum is one of 7), a lot of whom are involved in and are passionate about music, it was almost impossible for me to ignore my deep love for music from such a young age. I was constantly surrounded by different music genres from all eras and I intend to continue to honour and learn from the incredible musicians that I have loved my whole life.

I released a (pretty crappy) version of a song I wrote and produced called "Closure" on soundcloud in 2016 here: https://soundcloud.com/nellynor/closure-eleanor-meegan-original-demo-1

This is classic pop songwriting, channeling that late 2000s pop energy. If you're a fan of current local pop luminaries like Wafia you'll vibe this.

Liking this light n punchy bop from Eleanor! She offsets the poppy energy with this kind of casual delivery, that's pretty cool.
