Eleri Angharad is a Country artist from Swansea, South Wales. Inspired by a North American road trip, where she performed in Nashville, Greensboro, Chicago and New York, Eleri blends traditional Country Music storytelling with Celtic folk and catchy Pop melodies, drawing influences from James Taylor, Mary Hopkin 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 ‘This Ship’ released in October 2018, the story of a stormy breakup that in its first week gained over 2,500 streams on Spotify, and banjo driven title track ‘Earthbound’, which was recently added to the Welsh A-List on BBC Radio Wales. Eleri has previously been played on BBC Introducing Shows on Radio Wales, Radio Cymru and BBC 6Music.
Eleri recently embarked on her first UK tour, with dates in Manchester, Brighton, York, London and many more as well as two sold out Album Launch shows in Cardiff and her hometown of Swansea. With a wealth of performances and a Summer of festivals under her belt, (Glastonbury, How The Light Gets In, Live On The Wye, Home Farm Fest…) Eleri has also just announced her Europe Tour for September 2019.
✨ Earthbound, my debut album ✨
I’m so so excited and slightly overwhelmed to release so much music into the world! It’s been about two years in the making but I’m so proud of every single song and I really hope you like it.
To the amazing talented people who helped me make this album happen know that I am so so grateful and I will get around thanking every one of you!
