Hailing from West London, Eleni Drake is a talented singer and songwriter who's songs are decorated with a wonderful mixture of blues and jazz. Creating unique, vintage and gorgeous sounding ballads her brooding and moody songs are self produced and a clear view into her heart. Her writing exudes a sense of intimacy most song writers would only dream of being able to purvey, yet Eleni does this as second nature. Her songs are a late night trap of skilful nostalgia, solidarity and exquisite lyrics dancing between her jazz roots. Self admittedly Eleni is heavily influenced by Nina Simone, Billie Holiday and Ella Fitzgerald which echoes in her sombre tones and soothing melodies. Her dreaming songs retain an air of edginess which no doubt stem from her being an avid fan of both Rex Orange County and the late Mac Miller.
