Rising star EllyD will headline Whelan's next Friday

Dublin singer-songwriter EllyD will launch her new single at her first ever headline show in Whelan’s next weekend.

Following on from the release of her successful EP ‘Lighthouse’ earlier this year, the alternative pop artist will be debut her highly anticipated new single ‘Close’ at the iconic venue.

She said: “I’m really looking forward to an intimate night of music. It’s the first airing of my new single so i’m really excited to share it with people.

“It’s going to be a bit different to my usual gigs. I’ll be playing some old tunes and some new ones.”

‘Close’ is a far cry from EllyD’s previous offerings, perfectly blends exotic synths with sing-along celestial harmonies.

Recorded at Jam Studios with Martin Quin, the sumptuous production only elevates EllyD’s honest and heartfelt lyrics to a whole new level.

As well as the first official sneak peak of her soon to be released new track, EllyD will also be performing some of her hit songs to date as well as some new unreleased material.

The singer – whose voice has been compared to the sultry haunting vocals of Gemma Hayes and Skye Edwards – first honed her talent by touring across Europe while also becoming a regular on the Irish music circuit.

After many years on the Irish music scene, she released her debut solo EP ‘Rise’, reaching number 8 in the iTunes charts.

She has since played some of Ireland’s biggest festivals and top venues including Electric Picnic, The Secret Village Festival, Battle of the Lake Festival, The Button Factory, Whelan’s and The Workman’s Club.

Her last EP ‘Lighthouse’ gained huge airplay on national radio including on RTE Radio One and Today FM’s ‘Ed’S Songs of Praise’ during which presenter Ed Smith said: “She has a big future ahead of her, absolutely no doubt.”

The show will take place on Friday, June 29 at 8pm. Tickets for the gig are available online priced €8 or can be purchased for €10 at the door on the night.
