ELKAE is an emerging electronic soul artist, songwriter and producer setting out in a genre of her own. Taking inspiration from the music world and settings around her, she combines ambient production and live instrumentation to set her apart from the crowd. Bass and synth driven beats run parallel to her powerful soulful voice to consume the listener and immerse them in her world.
ELKAE played 2 slots at last year’s Electric Picnic and launched her debut single 'Sold' in November 2018. To much success, the track was playlisted on Spotify’s 'A Breath of Fresh EIRE' playlist and gained over 4000 listeners and 8000 streams in the first 3 weeks.
ELKAE launched 'Sold' at her debut headline show to a sold-out crowd at 'The Sound House' a week after her first release. She has been featured on the likes of Hot Press, The Irish Times, Nialler9, SPIN103.8, FM104.4, 98FM, IMRO, Remy, The Last Mixed Tape, and was a top 10 finalist in the IMRO Christy Hennessy Songwriting Competition 2018.
ELKAE then went onto release her second single “I Feel” on the 24th of April 2019. “I Feel” was featured on the above music blogs and also got her first International coverage in the USA (TrippleX music blog) and the UK (DiscoverNu) & was shared by La Belle Musique (France 2.2m total followers). “I Feel” was also added to new Irish radio stations “PLAY IRISH” ‘A List’ and named 1 of 10 must listen to tracks among artists such as The Cranberries, Gavin James, Le Boom, AE MAK, Loah and Mango x MathMan.
This October ELKAE’s latest release, ‘Conflictus’ was revealed to the eager music community and has since made its way onto GoldenPlec, The Last Mixed Tape, IMRO, Spotify’s ‘New Music Friday’ playlist where it will grab the attention of over 700,000 worldwide listeners.
