Eleanor McEvoy was born on Dublin’s northside. After college, she pursued a career as a session musician in Dublin, collaborating with a multitude of artists and groups including U2, Sinead O’Connor, Midge Ure and Mary Black

She got her first big break in 1992 as the composer, producer and co-performer (with Mary Black) of “A Woman’s Heart”, the title track for the best-selling Irish album in Irish history. The song continuously makes appearances on screen, most recently in 2019 in the award-winning TV show “Derry Girls”.

Her song “Sophie” was described by David Smith in The Guardian as “an anthem that is touching, inspiring and consoling thousands of anorexic girls around the world” It is used internationally in treatment centres to treat patients with eating disorders.

Her sixteenth album “Gimme Some Wine” received enthusiastic acclaim on its release, featuring co-writes with legendary Irish songwriter Paul Brady and  UK-based Dave Rotheray of The Beautiful South.

“McEvoy sounds like the sort of woman who might greet you with a bottle of red one night and a rolling pin the next”– Truck & Driver Magazine
“One of the few artists who can do no wrong whatsoever” – BBC Radio 2 (Alex Lester)
