As a female entrepreneur, musician and experienced educator, it is one of Elaine's passions to help motivate and inspire others to follow their dreams, both personal and business.
Sharing experiences and lessons learned from her own journey from physical incapacity to award-winning singer-songwriter has inspired others to explore how they too can achieve their potential!
Lennon uses her music as a channel for bringing out the best in her audience, putting into action her own personal mantra and the lyrics of her song which shaped her TEDx Talk ...
'LITTLE BIRD LITTLE SAILOR, TIME TO SEE OF WHAT YOU ARE MADE!'
Lennon has shared her positive mental health and motivational message through features on TED.com, Mummy Jojo Uncut (Wellbeing Podcast), Cumbernauld Unlocked (Documentary), Femme Scotland: The Kitchen Table, Songwriting Magic with Jim Byrne, Guest Speaker & Panelist at "Empowering Women in Songwriting' & Panelist at New College Lanarkshire...and many more.
Elaine was invited back to the TEDx stage in 2021, this time performing a TEDx Special of The Homebird Sessions with her guests Yvonne Lyon & Adriana Spina, outlining her thoughts worth sharing on navigating a post covid music industry as an independent artist.
The occasion was marked by the first collaborative release under Lennon's Little Sailor Records label.
The three female musicians co-wrote, co-produced, recorded and released THE LIGHT, inspired by the TEDx Theme 'What Now', their own friendship and how they helped keep their musical flames alight when they were dulling against heartache of the pandemic and loss of loved ones.
THE LIGHT, the first song to be released under Lennon's The Homebird Sessions Brand is also the first song ever written specifically for, and performed live at, a TEDx event. The Track was Acoustic Track of the Week on BBC RADIO's esteemed Chris Baxter's Late Show.
With the sole purpose of motivating others to follow their dreams and find ways to achieve them, no matter what challenges stand in their ways, Elaine shared with refreshing honesty, her story of paying attention to the guidance of that 'little voice inside', overcoming not only life changing injuries sustained in a car crash but also overcoming her own personal fears of not being 'good enough'.
She shares how she finally took action and worked hard to achieve her dreams, finding ways to live with the chronic pain, HMS and fibromyalgia resulting from injuries she sustained dint he crash, and how she manages to navigate through life now in the world of music.
Through sharing her story in an honest, positive and motivational way she hopes to truly inspire others with her words and her songs. "...it's my way of 'passing it forward'" says Elaine.
