Irish Rock Band Elevation Falls sound is classic rock, mingled with blues and soul, & their performance full of movement. From raging foot stomping beats to epic drama, they sweep audiences along with them on a musical journey.
They are fronted by the incredibly powerful & unique vocal talents of singer/songwriter Hazel Jade, our Warrior Queen! HJ formed the band in late 2012 & has been likened in ability to many great female singers by a number of industry professionals such as Pat Benatar and Beth Heart , you will not mistake her vocal for any other artist.
She is flanked by the stunning abilities of duel guitarists Chris Young and Darragh Shields, both of whom are influenced by great electric guitar masters such as Gary Moore of Thin Lizzy & Slash. These guys are a rare combination of ability and being able to unite in force to produce an amazing blend of harmonies.
Finishing off the line up are Ally, a Braveheart Scotsman on drums!!, and our own Brazilian rhythm man, Gabriel Grecco on bass.
Always busy, they've performed at a number of Irish festivals such as Electric Picnic and Knockanstockan, and in 2015 they played Vantastival, UFO Festival in Croatia, and Sunflower Festival in Northern Ireland, alongside a number of smaller festivals including Indie Festival Europe in Manchester. They've gigged over the year in Belfast and UK and performed at many local events, including the Fingal Film Festival Award Ceremony in Dublin.
Supported by a number of Irish music Industry people, including Queen of Irish Rock, Philomena Lynott who appeared in their video 'Watching Over You', Radio Presenters Roddie Cleere (KCLR), Pat Courtenay (Radio Nova) and very sadly, the late Johnny Lyons (98fm/Today FM), they are a 'class act', as they say in Ireland!
‘Origins' has been their latest release and one song from the album ('Goodbye to You') has been chosen as part of the soundtrack for a Canadian film heading for the film festivals in 2016 and then on general release in the late summer. They've also recently signed an exclusive publishing deal with GD78 Music for their song 'Watching Over You'
In June 2016, they will be putting down their latest tunes for a brand new EP.
ABOUT THE BAND MEMBERS:
Chris Young (lead guitar) plays with passion from his soul, not unlike his idols Gary Moore, Slash and Rory Gallagher. He has been with the band since 2014, and has a musical maturity way beyond his 18 years. His father is a guitarist, and Chris has grown up with rock in his heart. His riffs and musical concepts have a huge influence on the sound of EF.
Darragh Shields (lead guitar 2) recently joined EF, and has brought incredible harmony and duelling lead guitar riffs with him! Darragh and Chris are completely 'in tune' with each other, and these guys are going to become a major force together. Darragh has very similar influences to Chris, and his parents are also both musical performers.
Ally Pender joined in 2016 as EF's drummer, having co-founded a band in Scotland called 'In Search of Sanity' in 2011. He is heavily influenced by such bands as Led Zeppelin, Guns'n'Roses and AC/DC. Ally compliments the classic rock roots of EF and continues to develop their sound.
Gabriel Grecco Gabriel is a founder member of EF, and has held the positions of Drummer, Guitarist, and now Bassist! He's a consummate musician and great vocalist in his own right.
