How do you pronounce your name?

Eleanor Verses.

What’s the meaning behind your stage name?

My whole life I’ve gone by my middle name, Vanessa, but around 2015 I wanted a different name to go along with my music. One day I realised that the initials of my two middle names, ‘V’ and ‘S’, worked as a nice play on words of the abbreviation for ‘versus’ and the plural of the musical term ‘verses’, and then I decided to use my first name, Eleanor.

Are you currently working on anything?

Yes. Always.

Why isn’t your music available to stream?

Anyone who is a music fan (myself included) can agree that what professional musicians do, along with everyone that is involved in the creation of a good musical recording, has value. This may not apply to everyone’s work ethic, but those of us that take it seriously put a lot of time, thought, effort, heart, skill and other resources into our work, and the end result is a piece of art that someone usually ends up loving and connecting with. In my opinion, for a long time and for various reasons, the value of music has unfortunately not been reflected in streaming. You can experience my music by paying a reasonable price to have your own high-quality copy of it, which you can listen to whenever you want to. It’s yours to keep.
