Eleanor, a multi-talented artist, excels as a singer, songwriter, actress, and master of both the double bass and bass guitar, embodying versatility in her artistic pursuits. Her academic journey includes distinguished studies at the Royal Academy of Music, where she was a double bass scholar and graduated with top honours (BMus, First Class Honours). Her musical career is marked by performances under the leadership of renowned conductors such as Gustavo Dudamel, Sakari Oramo, Sir Mark Elder, and Edward Gardner. She has showcased her talents with the English National Opera and performed at prestigious venues like The Albert Hall with the Royal Philharmonic Orchestra.

Eleanor’s theatrical contributions span a range of productions, including roles in Cy Coleman’s “City of Angels,” Stephen Sondheim’s “Merrily We Roll Along,” and “Anyone Can Whistle” at Southwark Playhouse in 2022. Her stage experience extends to Jason Robert Brown’s “The Last Five Years” in Cornwall and Lourds Lane’s “SuperYou” at the Lyric Theatre in 2023. In the West End, she serves as the double bass/bass guitar deputy for “Standing at the Sky’s Edge,” and collaborates with The Nicholas Collective, featuring Trevor Dion Nicholas, Nick Barstow, and Nick Fitch. Her current engagement involves playing the electro-acoustic double bass and singing for the London Symphonic Rock Orchestra.

Eleanor’s recording career is equally impressive, with sessions at London’s AIR, Angel, and Abbey Road studios. She has lent her vocal talents to works by Ennio Morricone, Rachel Portman, John Debney, Patrick Doyle, and Alan Menken. Her voice graces the soundtracks of films like “Eurovision Song Contest: The Story of Fire Saga,” “Cinderella,” “Cruella,” “Puss in Boots,” and Disney’s live-action adaptations of “Aladdin” and “The Little Mermaid.”

In 2018, Eleanor took the spotlight as the vocal soloist in a live orchestral performance of “The English Patient” at the Royal Albert Hall, followed by performances in China with the Shanghai Symphony Orchestra and in Luxembourg with the Orchestre Philharmonique. Her role as the featured soloist in “Titanic LIVE” took her to France and Taiwan. She achieved a notable milestone being chosen by Gabriel Yared as his soprano soloist for the ‘Hollywood in Vienna’ gala concert, where Yared received the 2019 Max Steiner Film Music Achievement Award. Eleanor reprised her role in Vienna for the 2022 concert honoring Alan Menken. Additionally, her solo debut with the BBC Concert Orchestra, featuring Nigel Hess’s “The Way of Light,” is available across multiple streaming platforms. Most recently, she joined the RTÉ Concert Orchestra in Ireland for their ‘100 Years of Disney Music’ concerts.

Eleanor’s Overwater J Series

I bought my overwater bass second-hand at the ‘Wye Fret’ guitar and bass shop in Hay-on-Wye, Wales. I wasn’t planning to come out of the shop with a bass that day, but as soon as I picked up the Overwater, it fit me like a glove. I loved the feel of it under my fingers- it felt so smooth and easy, and without hesitation, I bought the bass. The rest is history!
