Based in and around Guildford, Surrey, Eleanore & the Lost are a progressive, symphonic rock band and Eleanore's vocals lift the hairs on the back of your neck (she boasts a range of 4 octaves). The song lyrics are beautifully crafted, while the music has catchy, memorable tunes resonating influences from Jeff Buckley, Peter Green's Fleetwood Mac, Bjork, Kate Bush and Evanescence.
As well as promoting the debut album Parlour Game, the band also released a new single in the Spring of 2011 My True Nature – a commission from the major international charity WWF to commemorate its 50th anniversary as well as acting as a stimulus piece for its nationwide competition of the same name.
Recent gigs of note include headlining in a dance show put on by the Windsor Festival in September 2011 at the Theatre Royal, Windsor. The dancing was predominantly choreographed to Eleanore's music which the band played live on stage during the show and received standing ovations at the end.
The band also played at the Ashcroft Hall (Fairfield Halls) in Croydon in November 2011 in an 800 seater theatre - it was very exciting that so many of the audience knew the son.
Eleanore took time out of performing in 2012 to compose for the second album, which is now in production.
