Eliyanah is a London-based singer and songwriter who tastefully fuses the worlds of Alternative, Indie and Electronic Pop. True to her Christian background, her Hebrew derived name is a literal translation of ‘God has answered’, an essence woven deeply into the fabric of her music.
Heralded by Earmilk as an artist that “weaves an introspective mood that resonates with anyone who has been through heartache,” Eliyanah fuses captivating, high-energy performances with melodic vocals and catchy melodies to take audiences on an emotional journey reminiscing on memories of love and loss with a soulful and spiritual twist.
With 500,000 cumulative streams to date, the 2021 UK Songwriting Contest finalist has combined 20 years of musicianship, creativity and tradition to craft heartfelt releases with cutting honesty including the nostalgic Somebody Else, and her best-known work to date Love Burned Out.
Growing up in a musical family and the Church, she became a vital member of the congregation’s musical productions from the age of seven, and as she entered adulthood, regularly sang before crowds of over 7,000 people across the UK and Europe. That access to the evangelical world of high-end music productions gave her a true insight into how to express your love through song, and more importantly, gave her the experience you need to get to the next level in the recording studio. Crucially, she understands the space and time needed in a song to allow its constituent parts to delve deep into your soul and to trigger emotions that are not too often found in contemporary music.
Inspired by artists including The 1975, Taylor Swift, Holly Humberstone and Lennon Stella and influenced by the world of the 80’s in which her father played a great part, Eliyanah wants to reconnect her audiences with distant memories and feelings. To create that nostalgic feel for a life well-loved and remind them of those moments that influenced their past, but which also shape the future.
Outside of music, Eliyanah works in the NHS as an Occupational Therapist specialising in supporting children that have learning disabilities, a career inspired by the love for her sister Margaret who has downs syndrome.
An extraordinary singer/songwriter, she is now empowered to share her musical journey with an ever-expanding audience which is a blessing for all that hear her.
