Elk Bell

Elk Bell has released two full length offerings, both have been crowned Feature Album by Western Australia’s RTRfm. Since 2011 her songs have received airplay and further feature status across Australia and college radio in the U.S.

You might catch her in solo singer/songwriter mode on guitar, piano or harp, or in full band extravaganza mode with her trove of Perth’s finest musicians.

Influenced by Aldous Harding, Sharon Van Etten, Agnes Obel, Low Roar and all the curious unknown songwriters hidden away doing the only thing that makes them feel whole.
