Bruno Major - Eloise
WhenSat. 1 Feb, 2020
An impossible to pigeonhole blend of sounds that can draw upon anything from James Blake and D’Angelo to Chet Baker and Nick Drake to create its own, uniquely intoxicating aura.
In 2016, Bruno Major set himself the task of recording and releasing one song a month for 12 months - 4 weeks to take an idea in his head to a finished record for people to listen to, every month, for a year. Within the self-imposed time frame, Major produced fully-realised, beautiful and inventive music and then repeated the trick 12 times over. Having initially worked as a session guitarist, Major moved down from Northampton to London and, inspired by the energy of the city, became obsessed with songwriting.
Honing his craft writing for other artists while all the time formulating his own musical style; an impossible to pigeonhole blend of sounds that can draw upon anything from James Blake and D’Angelo to Chet Baker and Nick Drake to create its own, uniquely intoxicating aura.
Eloise is an eighteen year old Londoner, but she spent her formative years in rural Normandy before moving over to North London at 10. It was in their eccentric family farmhouse - just outside Caen - that Eloise’s music first began to come together as she started to teach herself piano, and later write songs inspired by her musical mother who played her endless classics from Carole King, Billy Joel and a whole lot of jazz. All the while she was devouring films like Calamity Jane, Breakfast at Tiffany’s and Singing In The Rain.
