“yue” is a refreshing track from elkyn’s debut EP, “beech”. It has that really gentle guitar and very sweet sound that will calm anything down.
elkyn is 22 year old song writer and multi-instrumentalist, Joseph Donnelly. He writes songs that are an acute reflection of his beautiful heart with carefully crafted lyrics erupting with honesty and intricately finger-picked guitars.
Joseph began writing the music that would become elkyn while at University in Leeds (where he now calls home), recording his songs with his brother during weekend visits to the family home in York.
Listen to the full EP here:
Family is embedded in elkyn and Like a family, the songs envelope you in a trusting warmth; Joseph lays himself bare, as his honest songs slowly welcome and wash over you.
Joseph’s songs are a personal reflection on relationships, loss and growth, all told with the openness of family, making them an equal measure of affecting, compelling, and deeply addicting.
