Pumpkins And Nashville With British Country Artist Eleri

Eleri Angharad British country music

I am beyond excited to reveal our official sponsor of September’s Melbelle T-Shirt Club: British country artist Eleri.

“Swansea’s answer to Faith Hill”, Eleri combines traditional country music storytelling with catchy melodies and was recently dubbed dubbed “Kacey Musgraves meets London Grammar” by BBC6 Music. 

Inspired by a US road trip at age 19 Eleri came back changed. Having visited musical hotbeds like Greensboro, North Carolina and Nashville, as well as the shining lights of Chicago and New York she draws influences from a host of artists, infusing both rock and pop into her country sound.

We have partnered with Eleri to offer our T-Shirt Club subscribers a 2 for 1 ticket deal for her upcoming album launch show in Cardiff . Simply subscribe to any of our T-Shirt Club options before the 5th September, 2023 to take advantage of this offer.


Album release date: October 13th, 2023

Album launch show: October 14th 2023 at Clwb Ifor Bach, Cardiff

The journey to ‘The Carnival’ has seen many stops as this traveling road show of an album has journeyed across the world picking up inspiration and performances in London, Seattle, Manchester, Bristol and Birmingham before it makes its grand big opening to the world when it’s released on Friday 13th October! 


Having amassed nearly 1,000,000 streams for her work to date; Eleri has been selected as “The Artist to Watch” by the blog Belles & Gals.

The album announcement completes what has been a remarkable rise into the consciousness of British Country fans these past few years for Eleri. When the global pandemic struck in 2020, the Welsh country star backed herself against the odds by racking up over 500,000 streams for her Country-Pop EP ‘Nightclub Floor’ which was sparked by the hit single ‘Blank Walls’. What followed was consistent national and international radio play on the likes of the A-list on BBC Radio Wales, BBC Introducing, Absolute Country, Country Line Radio and Nashville radio which gained her a brand-new following.


If that wasn’t enough, when live shows were able to happen again Eleri secured slots at some of the biggest festivals in the genre and beyond with appearances at C2C (Country 2 Country), Buckle & Boots, Buck N’ Bull Saloon Weekender, The British Country Music Festival, Wavelength Spring Classic, In It Together Festival, Swansea Air Show, The Royal Welsh show and whole heap more! 


I studied theatre at university out in North Carolina and absolutely fell in love with all things Country and Americana.

As well as music I’m also a keen cook and a qualified personal trainer. My favourite thing to cook is sweet potato curry.

I was an extra in the indie film Submarine where I got to meet the director – Richard Ayoade from the IT Crowd.

My absolute favourite season is Autumn so I’m ready to buy everything pumpkin related from Melbelle next month!
