Eleri Angharad is a Country/Pop artist from Swansea, South Wales. Inspired by a North American road trip at the age of 19, Eleri blends traditional US Country Music storytelling with the catchy melodies of modern Pop, drawing influences from James Taylor, Kacey Musgraves and her young love of early Taylor Swift records.
Latest EP All I Can Do (Train Track Records 2016) was funded by the BBC Horizons scheme and has garnered airplay from BBC Wales, 6MUSIC and Nation Radio. ‘It’s freshening, it’s full of light and life’ - Adam Walton, BBC Radio Wales. The sound seamlessly weaves its way between Country and Pop with tracks including Nashville inspired guitar driven ‘Stuck On You’ and ‘Fuel’, a piano led ballad.
Aged 19, Eleri flew out to North America and went busking in Nashville, New York, Chicago, and many more bustling towns along the way. Eleri did the same in Ireland playing every venue possible across the country for 2 months before returning to Nashville for a month in 2015 for another tour playing as many venues that would have her.
Swansea based, Eleri has played Sold out shows in her hometown and regularly tours up and down the South Coast including Cardiff, Bristol and Southampton. She has performed at festivals such as Big Cwtch, KAYA fest and Cardiff's HUB fest. Eleri has also gained attention from local TV channels and blogs, including Subba Culture, Spectrum TV and Made In Cardiff. Ever the traveller, Eleri has also performed at the Edinburgh Fringe Festival and a weekend tour of Stockholm’s Folkcentrum.
Eleri is currently busy writing and recording tracks for her debut album.
