New to Adelaide, UK singer/songwriter Elaine McLaughlin is promoting her first EP ‘Six More Days’, an art-folk collection featuring cellist Judi Galbraith. Equally at home in large venues and intimate pub gigs, Elaine’s music wowed audiences and judges at the OpenMic UK final 2015. It combines the emotional and lyrical intensity of the early Joni Mitchell with rhythmic underpinnings that appeal to fans of Psapp and Kasey Chambers. Her collaboration with Galbraith has opened her to new musical possibilities, and she is actively seeking musicians from other backgrounds to extend and lift what music can express.

“THIS WAS A PERFORMANCE THAT LEFT YOU IN A MAGICAL SPELL, WITH BEAUTIFUL CLARITY AND HAUNTING MELODIES…BRILLIANT.”
