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.
"elkyn’s uniquely visceral and vulnerable performances have a special way of packing emotion into small and vast spaces. We can’t wait to hear more from this promising artist."
