Irish Chanteuse Eleanor McEvoy, who is best known for her songs ‘Sophie’ and the Irish standard ‘Only A Woman’s Heart’, has just announced a brand new single titled ‘Almost Beautiful’ set to be released Friday, March 12th, 2021.
Now based in Wexford, Dublin-born McEvoy’s career originally started as a session musician, which included a long stint with The Irish National Symphony Orchestra and with The Mary Black Band McEvoy decided to develop her own career, and quickly had the title track on The Woman’s Heart compilation and a U.S. record deal with Geffen Records.
McEvoy was soon touring the world to promote her eponymous debut album for Geffen, which went on to sell 250,000 copies. At the same time, ‘A Woman’s Heart’ entered the Irish charts, selling over 750,000 copies – and remains one of Ireland’s biggest selling albums of all-time. These successes established McEvoy as one of Ireland’s biggest stars, launching a career that has since seen her release twelve studio albums and tour the world.
Described by BBC Radio 2 as “one of the few artists who can do no wrong whatsoever”, Eleanor wrote “Almost Beautiful” with Dave Rotheray the acclaimed guitarist and songwriter from the massively successful UK band ‘The Beautiful South’.
It documents a loved-one slipping into mental illness to heartbreaking effect. Rotheray has previously spoken about the difficulty of writing about such a challenging issue…..“we went for a drink after this one”
