Essential Weekly Playlist Revisited – Elly D

EP has been in Ireland once again, chatting to some of the artists who make up the musical hotbed that exists to the west of the UK.

One such artist is Elly D, an Irish singer songwriter from West Dublin, whose music we’ve loved for a number of years here, both with her former band, Riot Tapes, and as a solo artist.

We had the chance to chat to Elly, and we’ll publish that interview later this week, but while we were speaking the subject, as it so often does when talking to musicians, came down to what artists she recommends. We mentioned that we used to run as a regular feature, the ‘Essential Weekly Playlist’ and Elly said she has a Spotify playlist.

So – without further ado, here is Elly D’s Essential Playlist:

You can find out more about Elly D online on her official website, Twitter, Facebook, and Instagram. Elly’s EP, ‘Rise’ came out at the end of 2016, and her latest single, ‘Lucky’, is available now.
