Having recently returned from a tour of the UK, Melbourne-based singer-songwriter Alanna Eileen is set to launch her debut EP. Produced by Mark Myers (The Middle East), it delivers introspective, lyric-driven songs with a gothic edge, combining pure vocals with intricate fingerpicking. Inspired by a tradition epitomised by artists like Nick Drake, Alanna's delicate brand of folk has won her many fans. She will be touring the east coast throughout February in support of this release.
