PRODUCED BY JOHN HOUGH & JOANNE COLLINS
Cork based singer-songwriter Elly O Keeffe is preparing to take Cork, the world and beyond by storm with her debut album ' When we live'. The album which is a delicious fusion of folk, pop, jazz and blues influences, showcases both the immense power of O' Keeffes unique, raw vocal and her talents as an edgy and relevant female songwriter within the Irish music industry. In 2006, during a year spent studying music at Corks's Colaiste Stiofan Naofa, O' Keeffe began to recognise and explore her talents not only as a singer, but as an expressive writer. Over the past four years, she has built up an impressive repertoire of songs which feature on the album, and has shown her ability to experiment stylistically in a mature and informed way.She has been a frequent fixture on the live music scene for the last two years, and has played some of Cork and Kerry's most renowned venues, such as the Crane Lane Theatre, The Savoy, The Pavilion, The Lobby and Killarney's INEC. This has given O' Keeffe the opportunity to perfect her sound and her live show, and she has accumulated an avid following in the process. Under the guidance of John Fitzgerald,along with the creative contributions from band members Edel Curtin (Piano), Brian Hassett (Bass), Christian Best (Drums), Elaine Kenny (Viola) and Aisling Fitzpatrick (Cello), O' Keeffe has emerged with an album that promises to become the soundtrack to 2011
