“Outstanding" Adam Walton, BBC Radio Wales
From Llandudno, North Wales, Cerys Eless has developed her own unique music style since the age of eleven. Beginning her performing at The Blue Bell Open Mic nights in Conwy, to becoming an active member of the Manchester music scene. Cerys’ quality live performances have led to a packed gigging schedule, from performances alongside local bands to appearing on the bill for Liverpool Sound City 2021.
Cerys Eless’ music features the influences of artists such as Adele, Florence & The Machine, Lorde and Tom Odell. “You Weren’t Mine” from her debut EP “Learning to Swim” and the single “Sometimes” highlight the attention to detail of harmonic and melodic relationship with meaningful lyrical content.
Seven of her songs have received BBC Introducing airplay on Adam Walton & Bethan Elfyn's New Music Shows. Cerys Eless’ highlights of 2019 included performing at Focus Wales, BBC Horizons’ Gwyl Arall, Fresh On The Net Live in Liverpool and having her song "What We Had" featured on Bethan Elfyn's "Wales Mix Vol 4".
The eagerly anticipated track "Overdose" won in the UK Top 40 category at the International Songwriting Awards 2019 and reached the finals at the UK Songwriting Competition 2019. Alongside receiving multiple airplays on Adam Walton's BBC Introducing show, it was also selected to be on the BBC Radio Wales A List for two consecutive weeks back in June.
