I really enjoyed doing the Weekend Wogan Show – it was a joy from start to finish. Was bowled over by the lovely warm reception from Terry himself and am really excited from the reaction to the show, the tweets and messages are still flowing in. You can listen to the both the interview and session on the Weekend Wogan Website.
Eleanor is pleased to announce that she will be appearing on Sir Terry Wogan’s radio show, Weekend Wogan, this coming Sunday, 4 December. The show broadcasts on BBC Radio 2 and airs from 1100-1300. Eleanor will be performing live in the studio.

Alone is already receiving glowing reviews:
‘Alone’ a twelve track journey through the art, emotions and mind of this luxuriantly talented artist. If you think there’s a better song than “You’ll hear better songs (than this)” released this year, then you have cloth ears. Her vocals, with that distinctive Dublin burr of hers, are heart-breakingly inspiring, and a counterpoint to the simplicity and accessibility of songs. The combination is an outstandingly listenable mixture that is both instantaneously likeable and insistent enough to be memorable. Liking McEvoy’s work is easy, because it’s beautiful. Rock Rebels
My new album “Alone” is to be released on 12th September. It is now available to pre-order on Amazon.
It’s a really unusual album for me in that it’s just me on my own, playing as I do on stage. It came about as a result of me having a few days off in the middle of an English tour. There wasn’t enough time to come home but the thought of staying in (yet another) hotel or B&B was more than I could cope with at that point.
I called up The Grange studio in Norfolk, where I’ve done quite a bit of recording over the years, to see if I could stay in one of the cottages in the grounds. They told me to come on down. When I got there the studio turned out to be free, so Dave the engineer suggested I go in and sing some songs.
To be honest, I wasn’t in a great frame of mind at the time, so I went in and sang my heart out. I had no plan or vision, nor, therefore, was I under any pressure. I was just singing my songs with my electric, as I do on stage every night.
When friends and colleagues heard the result there was an overwhelming reaction that the session should be released as an album. I was initially reluctant because while I really love the mood and ‘vibe’ of the session, I feel it’s a risk for me to release something so stripped back…. but on the basis that fortune favours the bold……
