Her song ‘Whisper a Prayer to the Moon’ features in ‘The Nephew’ starring Pierce Brosnan. The cult HBO series ‘Six Feet Under’ featured the song ‘All I Have’ written by Caroline Lavelle and McEvoy. All of the above mark Eleanor as a globally acclaimed and much celebrated songwriter and composer, whereas in her homeland of Ireland; Eleanor is well known as the writer behind ‘A woman’s heart’, the lead track taken from the same titled album that went on to be one ‘the biggest selling Irish albums of all time’. *In the same week that A Woman’s Heart was released, Tom Zutaut A & R from Geffen Records, who had previously signed Guns & Roses, Motley Crew, and Edie Brickell, offered McEvoy a worldwide recording deal after watching her perform at The Baggot Inn in Dublin.
From a basement bar, to a major record deal and working with world class Grammy Award Winning producers to worldwide tours with The Fugees & Fiona Apple and duets with artists of the caliber of Richard Thompson, McEvoy is an award winning, long withstanding artist of the highest grace and courtesy. It is no wonder that Eleanor has so many loyal and dedicated fans around the globe.

It is Eleanor’s honest attitude to music that has won her many fans and as a songwriter Eleanor has had songs covered by artists as diverse asEmmylou Harris, Sonja Kristina, Mary Black and Phil Coulter.
