Ellyn Oliver: Arms Wide Open
“a unique and evocative voice that radiates power, candour and warmth”
'Arms Wide Open' is the long awaited debut EP from Aberdeenshire-born and Glasgow-based vocalist, Ellyn Oliver. These first five tracks capture Ellyn's versatility as she experiments with a variety of genres such as folk, pop, blues, gospel and soul.
Ellyn Oliver has been working as a session vocalist and as part of a number of Glasgow-based projects and bands for a number of years. Ellyn’s voice is often likened to Norah Jones, Adele or Eva Cassidy. For her first solo release she has teamed up with numerous gifted friends she's gathered on the way including Simon Kennedy, Miroslav Hodun, Gus Stirrat and Ifedade Thomas.
For this very special night at The Blue Lamp, Ellyn will be performing the material from her forthcoming EP plus a number of influential songs that provided inspiration.
