Eleri Angharad is a fresh new voice on the UK Country scene from Swansea, South Wales. Inspired by a North American road trip, where she performed in Nashville, Chicago and New York, Eleri blends traditional Country Music storytelling with Celtic folk and catchy Pop melodies, drawing influences from James Taylor and Kacey Musgraves.
Captivated by Nashville artists’ stories of heartbreak, travelling and coming home, Eleri explores these themes in her debut album ‘Earthbound’; body of work based on her travels around the US, Ireland and Sweden, co-written with Owen Powell of Catatonia and Cardiff based singer/songwriter Naomi Rae.
Tracks include banjo-driven title track ‘Earthbound’, which was added to the Welsh A-List on BBC Radio Wales for 5 weeks following its release. “Didn’t we step into Nashville there!” - Eleri Sion. “What a crystalline and beautiful voice!” - Adam Walton.
Eleri recently embarked on her first UK tour, with dates in Manchester, Brighton, and London, as well as two sold-out Album Launch shows in Cardiff and her hometown of Swansea. With a wealth of performances under her belt, and an exciting Summer of festivals ahead (How The Light Gets In, Live On The Wye, Home Farm Fest…) Eleri is currently touring Europe, with dates in Germany, Netherlands, Belgium, Italy and Austria.
