Nashville Songwriters Association International 'One to Watch'
'NSAI Top 40'
'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.'
Grammy Winning Song-Writer and Grammy Nominated Singer-Songwriter
'Better late than never, Elaine Lennon didn't get her start in music until after starting her family. But rather than set her back, it gives us the treat of experiencing an artist who's new to our ears, but whose writing is already maturely developed, like a well-steeped tea, rich in colour and full of flavour, and with one of those rare voices that just sounds effortless and organic.'
Named to the Chicago Tribune's list of the '50 Most Significant Songwriters in the Last 50 Years'.
‘Elaine has mastered the knack of creating 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!’
Award Winning Singer-Songwriter, Producer and Director of 'The Glasgow Songwriting Festival'
'She demonstrated to audiences and judges alike the fantastic audience rapport she showcased along with her incredibly moving self penned songs and music.'
Presenter, Producer of the Danny Kyle Stage at Celtic Connections
'...the subject matter is common but you found a new way of saying it...' (of 'Little Bird Little Sailor')
'...it’s very difficult to do what you did and make it sound effortless...' (of 'In Songs We Live On')
'...one of the strongest songs I've heard while evaluating. It has unique, beautiful language. And while the subject matter isn't new, it's presented in a strong, heart-breaking way that really moves me as a listener...' (of 'Only Love Can Break Your Heart')
Nashville Songwriters Association International - staff evaluators
'If you like Adele, Joni Mitchell or Carly Simon then you'd like Elaine Lennon.'
Veteran Radio Presenter
'Elaine Lennon in the singer songwriter round on Country on the Clyde was phenomenal. The sound of her voice, the emotion packed into every song was just spell binding...with a voice like hers you would have to be made of stone not to let it touch your soul.'
'Thanks to Elaine Lennon for her wonderful opening set.' (on opening for Danny Schmidt)
The Fallen Angels Club
'On the back of her Danny Kyle stage success at Celtic Connections, she confidently performed songs from her forthcoming debut album. Sad songs make us happy, we were assured! In that case, Elaine is a musical stand up comedian as her songs didn't just pull at heartstrings, they surgically removed them with their beautiful poignancy.'
Event Attendee and Music Blogger
'You were absolutely brilliant, your songs capture the imagination and made us laugh and shed a tear...'
