Unique, soulful and northerly vocals drench stories with alluring melodies and bring to life the underbelly of our native Yorkshire. ‘Elwhaeko’ is the project of singer / songwriter, Lee Atkinson (formerly Making Dens / JSMG).
A modern take on folk and indie guitar music, the hooks are classic and the words offbeat, woven into intricate, beautiful and original melodies. The songs engage through protagonists such as ‘Roxy’, ‘Coco Rose’ and ‘A Devil of a Man’ and expect something similar in tone to that of Nick Cave, Scott Walker and Jarvis Cocker. Working on his debut album with producer ‘John Cox’, Elwhaeko is in no short supply of material and will often be joined on stage by other musicians creating a versatile and inspiriting sound. His debut album is due for release early summer and will coincide with the festival season in the region. Elwhaeko can be seen playing around Yorkshire and beyond.
