Obviously it’s been quite a while since my last live gig, which I’m quite sad about. Clearly you are too – there, there. But thankfully there are videos on the internet that can tide us over until the next time. Last year my multi-instrumentalist friend Raymundo “Nene” Fernandez invited me to play a little music at The Cuban in Bristol, and there are quite a few videos from that night – so take your pick! They’re a bunch of covers that I love singing and I hope you like them just as much as I do.
Obviamente hace mucho tiempo que no he tocado un show, lo cuál me hace un poco triste. Claro que a ti también, ya está, ya está. Pero afortunadamete hay videos en la red que pueden sacarnos de apuros hasta la próxima vez. El año pasado mi amigo multinstrumentista Raymundo “Nene” Fernández me invitó a tocar algo de música en The Cuban en Bristol, y hay bastantes videos de esa noche -¡elige los que quieras! Son unos covers que me encantan cantar y espero que te gusten tanto que a mí.

Free entry, so see you there, 8 PM
Laying low for the while. I recognize that I do that a lot.
I never stop writing though, so there’s more to come.
Hope you’re well, or trying to be. That’s what I’m doing.
If you care (if you don’t, what are you still doing here…), I do tweet quite a bit, so you know where to find me:
Look after yourself please, and I’ll see you soooon.
Fear is such a liar. Stop thinking about a future that hasn’t even come yet, and instead focus on good things – “seek peace and pursue it”.
This Sunday 7th May I’m performing at The Brewers Arms’ Open Mic Festival in Banwell! There will be lots of other musicians, both local and from the surrounding areas, taking part from 2pm onwards and it is FREE ENTRY.
I am one proud sister to the lady on the right. Last Sunday was her company E. Stellar PR‘s first event and it was a big success. Thank you to everyone who came out and supported, performed, helped organize, and all the bits in between. This particular snap is from the last song of the night, with the incredible band and harmonies which were positively on point… and I got to sing it with my sister.
You are a work in progress. Stop being so hard on yourself, okay?
I am aware it has been a while since my last video.
Sometimes you just need a little healing. I guess you could say I’ve been healing over. Feeling better now. And passing it along 😉

Yesterday was my first show in London. Can’t believe it’s taken me so long to get down there. Actually, I can. I’ve taken time off, started back up several times. Things feel good now, like I’m in a good place.
When you’re at this early point in your career, where not many people know you, any time you put on a gig that you solely organize yourself, you’re not sure if or how many people will come, but pretty much every seat on the Battersea Barge was taken. Half were family and friends of us, the musicians. So much gratitude for that. (If you’re related to or friends with someone doing a similar thing, in whatever field, support them any way that you can – they need it more than you’d think.) And the other half of the audience were people I’d never met before… Really not bad for an out-of-towner. Thank you to every single one of you – I hope you enjoyed my music as much as I enjoyed playing it to you.
The Battersea Barge looked after us well, as did Phil, the sound engineer. I’m thankful Karin and I finally got to do a gig together after meeting in Bristol four years ago (that woman’s voice). Definitely want to come back.

This is not my most eloquent and smoothly-thought-out post, but if I did one of those, I’d use five times the words and you and I both don’t want to be here all day. I used to have a mailing list and there I’d expand a lot more. Maybe I’ll set that up again in the future. But for now eleanorvs.com is where it’s at.
2 out of 3 of my headline gigs this Feb done – had a good two shows in Bath and Box with Saskia Maxwell and Salma, respectively. I booked these months ago and it’s come around quickly. One more to go this Sunday 12th in London at Battersea Barge with Karin Fransson and Annalise Lam accompanying me on violin, 7 PM £6 adv/£7 otd – tickets here.
Tomorrow Tuesday 7th, Salma and I are supporting The Layers and Hidden Gentlemen at The Louisiana, Bristol, 7:30 PM – tickets here or £6 otd. And February 14th I’m singing at Viva La Mexicana in Bedminster, Bristol so come down for a lovely Mexican meal and music for Valentine’s Night from 7:30 PM.
Now you’re all up to speed. Speak soon and tell you all about it in the next vlog. x
