Alana Henderson is 24 year old Irish singer-songwriter-cellist from county Tyrone who released her 'bewitching' debut EP 'Wax & Wane' in February 2013 & was listed by Hot Press magazine as ‘one to watch’ for 2013.
Alana's esoteric sound fuses folk, classical, blues and pop influences, combining lyrics of great poetic depth with a burning sense of intellectual enquiry. Powerful tales of lost love and broken relationships, fragile delicate vocals, combine with emotive cello accompaniment and effective song structures that ease along and bring surprising moments of vigour. Her stage-presence, songs with great melody and heart, combined with her disarmingly honest songwriting style, make her a truly captivating performer.
