Elly J Devon


  1. 1.
Raw, natural & honest.  Elly’s extraordinary range and depth resonates powerfully with her beautiful words.  Fired by life, love, pain and poetry reflecting the waves and vicissitudes of nature.
Born and bred in the abundant Devon countryside Elly has created a truthful world that makes you stop, listen and feel.
Longing to play her grandmother’s piano at eight she was writing songs, improvising, creating a musical world and at twelve had won a singing scholarship to Wells Cathedral School, where she was classically trained and honed that haunting beautiful voice. She joined the big band and solidified her passion for soul/jazz music. Endlessly writing lyrics, busking, open mics, support gigs, solo gigs and simply singing at every imaginable opportunity.
“My music is about finding moments in time and creating beauty, or being honest about its pain; or quite simply about love. I’ve been so inspired by where I live and imagery of that seeps through.  A combination of all of this has made my music honest, truthful and real.”
