Listen Back to Elaine chatting about the inspiration behind her songs with Liz Clark on the 'Album of the Week Show'
Featured 'ALBUM OF THE WEEK' on The Iain Anderson Show on BBC Radio Scotland (from 12th Jan). Horse McDonald sits in for Iain:
"Incredible. There's an ease about her voice...it comes from the heart...both strong and fragile. It's real emotive story-telling. I really like it."
'Just lovely' Iain Anderson (The Iain Anderson Show, BBC Radio Scotland)
'Really Lovely Stuff’ Ben Glover
'Original beautifully crafted songs, branded with her own unique sound, while evoking the distinct sensation you have been listening to her music all of your life!’ Findlay Napier
'Elaine Lennon's music and writing has a powerfully transporting, ethereal nature to it, immersing and lifting the listener with compelling storytelling and sincere truth-telling.' Michael Logen
'Rich in colour and full of flavour, with one of those rare voices that just sounds effortless and organic.'.Danny Schmidt
'Sublime. Lennon recalled some of the classic singer songwriters from the past with echoes of Janis Ian, Dory Previn and even Nina Simone hovering around, the latter especially evident on the bluesy ‘Trouble‘.’ Paul Kerr - AmericanaUK
"What a great song-writer she is - I will be playing much more from this album". Eve Blair (The Late Show, BBC Radio Ulster)
"Majestic - Lennon's vocals are tremendous. The songs stay with you for a long, long time after listening to the album" - 4 Stars - Maverick Magazine
'The subject matter is common but you found a new way of saying it. It’s very difficult to do what you did and make it sound effortless...unique, beautiful language' NSAI
