born in an old brewery, formed in a leeds basement, and refined since 2019, elkyn is an acute reflection of joseph donnelly's beautiful heart. carefully crafted lyrics erupting with honesty and intricately finger-picked guitars make this yorkshire-based songwriter's unique brand of music equal measures of affecting, compelling, and deeply addicting. 

"A beautiful rising tempest, elkyn’s breathtaking winter single “If Only It Was Alright Now” is a feverish song of longing and desire, frustration and unfulfilled dreams. for fans of Phoebe Bridgers, Sufjan Stevens, Nick Drake, Novo Amor"
