Eleanor McEvoy began her career as a session musician in Dublin, playing for numerous recordings and artists including U2, Sinead O’Connor and Mary Black. McEvoy was a violinist with the National Symphony Orchestra of Ireland for five years, but her real passion was song writing.
Her critically acclaimed canon of work spans fifteen albums and appearances on numerous compilation albums. She has also had numerous cover versions of her songs by performers such as Emmylou Harris, Mary Black, Phil Coulter, Mary Coughlan, Bella Hardy, Eliza Carthy, Derek Ryan, Jack L and up and coming Irish band Saint Sister. McEvoy’s latest album Forgotten Dreams (2019) was recorded in Air Studios in London as a direct-cut-to-vinyl.
