Fast rising Welsh Country-Pop talent Eleri Angharad is currently gearing up for the release of her much anticipated debut album ‘Earthbound’. The LP will be released via Train Track Records on April 12th and promises to be one of the standout records of this year.
Sonically the Swansea-based artist has been inspired by her North American road, where she performed in the home of Country; Nashville, Greensboro, Chicago and New York. The album blends together traditional US Country Music storytelling with catchy melodies and hooks and includes a dash of modern pop styles.
Eleri is a fresh new voice within the ever growing British Country scene and has previously gained airplay on BBC Radio Wales, BBC6 Music, Nation Radio and was playlisted on BBC Radio Cymru – with her last EP being funded by the BBC Horizon’s scheme.
‘Earthbound’ has been co written by Eleri Angharad, former Catatonia writer and guitarist, Owen Powell and Cardiff based singer/songwriter Naomi Rae. It was recorded at Woodcroft in Cardiff and produced by Lee House, previous sound engineer at Acapela Studio who has also worked with Welsh Artists Amy Wadge and Cerys Matthews.
Speaking about the forthcoming record, Eleri says: “My new music is fuelled by my passion for Nashville guitar driven, organic sounds blended with the roots of my Welsh upbringing. Encompassing all of my emotions around relationships, travels, friendships and coming home ‘Earthbound’ is the most honest collection of songs I’ve ever written”
