From an idyllic, leafy Yorkshire upbringing and a lifetime dedicated to classical training comes Eurielle.
Eurielle was first identified and mentored by the late Chris Evans (EMI Classical, Polygram, instrumental in Nigel Kennedy’s career) after he witnessed her solo performance at the York Grand Opera House with Kirkham Henry Performing Arts School. At 13, after 9 years of singing, dancing and piano training Eurielle was approached by Sony Music via the Derek Franks Organisation to be developed as a Charlotte Church alternative – an offer which Eurielle turned down in favour of continuing her musical studies and sporting commitments.
Eurielle went on to twice win at The Horse of The Year Show (2000, 2004), and also represented England, winning the “International Working Hunter Pony” competition for three consecutive years.
After graduating from a vocal scholarship with St. Peter’s School in York, Eurielle spent two years preparing to audition for the three major classical music conservatoires in London, and also became a member of the National Youth Choir of Great Britain. Eurielle accepted a vocal scholarship for the Bachelor of Music Course at The Royal Academy of Music in 2007.
Under the esteemed, late Noelle Barker OBE at the Academy, Eurielle explored her musical range and started to develop the sound which would later become her trademark – a classically infused but modern musical take on the stories of mythology, legend, fantasy and our own human nature.
Whilst still at college, in 2010, Eurielle was introduced to multi-platinum producer Ryan Laubscher of Inception Productions who had previously worked with Katherine Jenkins, Pixie Lott and Russell Watson. Ryan and Eurielle saw in each other the perfect musical match and they began to co-write and record together. The songs produced to date have consumed thousands of hours of recording and studio time and reflect the musical aspirations of both producer and artist.
To date, Eurielle has released an EP – ‘The Incarnation’ (2013), two singles; ‘Gold’ (2013), and ‘Carry Me’ (2014), and in December 2015, her Debut Album – ‘Arcadia’, as well as a selection of official videos, all of which were shot by award winning cinematographer Nick Cooke (Inter Film Festival Berlin, Cannes Corporate and TV Awards, amongst others). Her work has already earned her the recognition and endorsement of BBC Introducing with her song ‘Raindrops’ being selected several times for airplay in both Essex and Suffolk.
It also attracted the attention of Emmy Award winning composer, John Lunn, who asked her to record the Downton Abbey Christmas Single for 2015, “Nothing Will Be Easy”, and one other song, “I’ll Count The Days”, which is also included on the album, “Downton Abbey – The Ultimate Collection”, released on 4th December 2015.
Following the success of this, Eurielle has since been invited to write and record for several more high profile soundtrack projects in 2016, and has numerous exciting collaborations planned with a diverse range of artists and composers. Meanwhile, she continues to write and produce her own music, and has already begun preparations for her second studio album which she hopes to release by the end of this year, or in early 2017…
