ELEANOR MCEVOY – Yola
“Well written, well performed, well produced. Definitely a keeper.” High Fidelity Review
“… the live-in-home-studio performances are beautifully restrained, and the vibe of both writing and sound has a warmth and contentedness redolent of gazing through rainlashed stone cottage windows in Wexford…” MOJO
“ …a class act…confirms that this CD realises her true potential as a resourceful and gifted songwriter.” Get Rhythm
“… a brave rejection of the predictable in favour of a more adventuresome following of one woman’s heart.” Hot Press
“….her fourth and undoubtedly best release.” Birmingham Post
Irish singer-songwriter Eleanor McEvoy achieved star status in 1992 when her song “Only A Woman’s Heart” inspired the title for, and appeared on, the “A Woman’s Heart” anthology album.
2003’s “Yola” – a celebrated SACD format recording – followed up 1999’s Rupert Hine-produced ‘Snapshots’ (Columbia) – also available at Market Square as a limited COLLECTORS EDITION (MOSACD305) – with ‘Yola’: eleven exquisite songs couching an intimate exploration of mood, space and texture by this most innovative and accomplished songwriter.
Produced by McEvoy and keyboard player, Brian Connor, co-writing credits go to Lloyd Cole (“Dreaming of Leaving”) and The Christians’ Henry Priestman (“Something So Wonderful”).
For many, this is as close as the talented McEvoy ever got to making a ‘traditional’ album – and as such remains a firm favourite in her highly eclectic catalogue.
