This song is just a taste of what fans can expect from their upcoming sophomore release, which they are currently in the studio working on (details will be announced soon). And the duo’s rising popularity doesn’t stop there. They performed a triumphant sold out homecoming show in Nashville in late May. Discovered and managed by Big Enterprises since April 2010, Elenowen recently signed with WME.
Prior to this year, Elenowen had been working at the same local Nashville coffee shop, living from paycheck to paycheck and dreaming of making it as musicians. They self-released their first album in January 2010, Pulling Back the Black Veil, consisting of 8 original tracks they’d written about their lives as a young married couple. Their passion drove their writing and desire to be honest, real and vulnerable to their audience. Now, since their exposure on “The Voice,” their debut album reached #2 on the iTunes Singer/Songwriter album chart.
In an industry hungry for something new, raw, and beautiful, Elenowen distinguishes itself as an up and coming act that completely and refreshingly satisfies its listener.
