About Eleonora

Jazz/funk/blues/soul singer, singer-songwriter (own PA) Setups: Jazz trio/quartet/quintet, Solo guitar-voice, Funk/soul/blues 5pc band
Singer
London

I've been singing since I can remember, albeit not in front of people. I remember sneaking out in the balcony with a cassette voice recording at the age of around 10, singing along with Celine Dion trying to nail the melody of My Heart Will Go On. I didn't get a chance to sing solo in front of a crowd until the last year of secondary school, in a school performance. I had never experience such utter freedom and happiness till then. That's when I realised that I was made to perform. Things just went from there. I formed a band in high school and we put on gigs at our and other schools, until I eventually started writing my own music and gigged around Athens as a singer-songwriter (putting my 10 years of guitar lessons in good use). I have since been part of various pop/rock/funk bands and duos. When I moved to London and started exploring the music scene, I fell in love with jazz. I was already a jazz listener but had not considered performing it. I was lucky to encounter an incredibly vibrant and buzzing jazz scene, with amazing musicians always taking the genre one step further, constantly creating. I let jazz teach me, inspire me, take over me; and I can never go back.

Jazz
All of me
All the things you are
At last
Autumn leaves
Bewitched bothered and bewildered
Black coffee
Bye Bye Blackbird
Darn that dream
Day in, day out
East of the sun
Fly me to the moon
Historia de un amor
Hit the road
I can’t give you anything but love
It could happen to you
Just in time
Let’s fall in love
Lover man
Lullaby of Birdland
Misty
My romance
Nature boy
No moon at all
Summertime
There is no greater love
These foolish things
What is this thing called love
Why don’t you do right
Willow weep for me
Soul/Funk/Pop
Back to Black
Bang Bang
Blue Jeans
Englishman in New York
Fade Into You
Feeling good
Hurt
Let it be
Love is a losing game
Love the way you lie
Mad about you
Make you feel my love
Rehab
Rolling in the deep
Simply Falling
Stand by me
These boots are made for walking
This Is The Life
Valerie
You know I’m no good
Customer questions

What if my timings change after I've booked you?

We always try our best to be flexible to help ensure your event runs as smoothly as possible. If timings change slightly in the run up to the event just let us know.

Can you provide an iPod/DJ service before and between your sets?

Absolutely. We can offer a playlist service for free between sets. If you'd like a DJ service via our PA after the final set until the venue closes, we provide this for an additional £100.

How much time do you need to set up?

We usually set up about 1 to 1.5 hours before the performance time. As soon as our PA is set up we can provide a free playlist service to help set the atmosphere and get your guests ready for our live performance!

Can I pick the pieces you play from the set list?

We're definitely happy to chat through and make sure we find what works best for your event.

Do you bring all the equipment you need to perform?

Yes, absolutely! We always bring our own instruments, microphones, cables etc, and can also provide a PA system, upon request.

Can you learn specific pieces before the event?

If a song isn't included in our song list there may still be a chance we already know it. If there is a special song you'd like us to learn we are happy to do this for you. There is a fee of £30 for this service to take into account rehearsal times etc.

What do your clients love most about your performances?

I am always told that I make them feel through my singing.

Which venues have you performed at in the past?

Multiple pubs and bars in Athens, Lefkas and London. I currently have a residency at Jazz After Dark, in Soho.

What is the most high profile gig you've performed?

I performed my own compositions at the 16th Anti-Racism festival of Athens in 2012, opening for one of the most respected Greek singers, Maria Farantouri. I also performed a song of mine in a stadium concert against the closure of a daily Greek newspaper, highly respected for its independence and impartiality: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QbqmX97vLY8
