Eleni Drake

Hailing from West London, Eleni Drake is a singer, songwriter and producer who's songs are decorated with a wonderful mixture of indie rock, 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.

With live shows alongside much of "real life" hindered from 2020 to 2022, Eleni focussed on building her online audience, with a focus on YouTube, Instagram and Spotify and released her debut EP 'Vanilla Sky' (2020) and debut album 'Can't Stop The Dawn' (2021).

During 2021 and 2022 Eleni quickly found thousands and then tens of thousands of people online who love her music. May 2023 saw the release of her second album 'Surf the Sun'.
