A self-taught guitarist and songwriter, Eleanor began gigging at just thirteen years old and has spent the last year working with notable writers Sacha Skarbek (Adele, Gabrielle Aplin), Jim Duguid (Paolo Nutini) and Andrew DeRoberts (One Republic) on her debut material. It was with DeRoberts, whilst in Nashville recently, Eleanor wrote ‘Polaroid’, which centres around the subtle idea of appreciating the moment before the inevitability of change.
“The song stemmed from a conversation that me and Andrew had”, explains Eleanor, “It was the day after Trump got elected in the U.S and I was explaining to him about all the problems that were occurring due to the government at home and Andrew was talking about the potential impact of the Trump presidency. So, at its heart, the song is just saying ‘if we just take a minute to admire the beauty and what we have, maybe we wouldn’t ruin it!’”
