Unique, soulful and northern indie folk band
The howl of this unique, soulful and northern indie folk band discharges a huge, golden and inspiriting sound with
classic hooks and offbeat words, woven into beautiful melodies. Based on the songwriting of Lee Atkinson, the fivepiece
is completed by Laura Dowse, Jack Hush, David Tomlinson and Leo Lyon.
Elwhaeko has established itself as a beat in the heart of the local scene and beyond, riding the airwaves of BBC
Introducing, supporting cult icons ‘Reverend and the Makers’ and gracing the main stage of Hull Trinity Festival. As
detailed in signature tune ‘Lone Wolf’ the band are hungry for 2017.
“The best description of Elwhaeko’s sound is dark, indie, acoustic, pop. The band played mesmerising melodies that
were so beautiful they could leave you stood, fixated in a trance. Lee Atkinson’s soulful vocals help create their
effortless and captivating sound. The band are a group who will be easy for almost all ears to listen to with their freespirited
tone.” – Browse Magazine
