Eleanore & The Lost
Eleanore & the Lost is a symphonic folk rock band with gothic elements and the creation of independent singer/songwriter, Eleanore, from Surrey. The band line-up comprises David Burt on guitars and keyboard, Jake Perrett on drums, Mike Chapman on bass and Sharon Wells on backing vocals.
After winning many fans with the release of debut album, "Parlour Game", Eleanore & the Lost have enthralled audiences with stunning live performances, showcasing Eleanore's spectacular 4 octave range and Kate Bush-esque vocals. As such, it really is no wonder their reviews have showered them with compliments.
Eleanore launched her debut album in November 2009. In the interim, as well as promoting the first album, Eleanore has composed for three independent films, and was commissioned in 2011 by the international charity The Worldwide Fund for Nature (WWF) to compose the theme song for their 50th anniversary. The resulting song, "My True Nature", was also used as a stimulus piece for a nationwide competition by the same name. She has also had airplay and performed on various radio stations including BBC Radio London and BBC Radio Berkshire.
Eleanore & the Lost have been promoting second album, "The Gift", with a series of gigs that have proven very successful in gaining new fans, and the new album is as its title suggests - a gift that keeps on giving! Eleanore is now back in the studio working on the last few songs of the second album and a CD of the entire album will be released in the future.
In the studio as well as onstage, Eleanore's music and voice are truly captivating, and evidence that she continues to compose songs with great, well-written lyrics, memorable melodies and spine-tingling, epic choruses that you can't get out of your head for literally days… and days.
"The awesome vocal might and musical presence of Eleanore & the Lost are unleashed! Eleanore, a Kate Bush-like vocalist stole the show and certainly uplifted the audience, evident by standing ovations at the end." Pete Rann, Royal Borough Observer, Windsor Festival
