Meet MOODY ELF, Longevity Records latest band...

Longevity latest Band: Moody elf…

We welcome Moody Elf, a fresh Manchester soul-World folk combo with tight harmonies and a lead vocal sweetly reminiscent of Joan Baez… Expect chiming Janschean acoustics and artfully twinkled keys framing songs that make the hairs on the back of your legs stand up. Powerful, captivating stuff

Having worked recently with Longevity Records recording guru KC, Moody Elf have a fine set of demo tracks here for you to listen too, enjoy!

Meet the band…

Since graduating from Salford University with a first-class honours degree in Band Musicianship, Manchester born, singer-songwriter Deborah Allen (product of jazz-loving father and Jim Reeves worshipping mother) has continued to pursue a career performing, writing and teaching music in a diverse range of genres and settings. Deborah has sung in, and arranged music for choirs, cover bands, and jazz ensembles – from piano vocal duos to big bands – including her own quartet, in venues across the North West. Debi has also written music for film and TV, and continues to work on vocal technique with students from primary age children to pensioners.

Bass-player Dan O’Neill spent his formative years playing in rock and folk bands. Dan attended Cork Academy of Music, before moving to England in 1995 to study jazz bass at Leeds College of Music and City College Manchester.Inspired by the traditional folk music of his homeland and, notably, the music of Neil Young, Phil Lynott, and Jaco Pastorius.

Helena Summerfield studied saxophone at the Guildhall School of Music and Drama and has taught music in a variety of Manchester schools since graduating. She is passionate about introducing jazz and improvised music to young people. Helena has performed at the Manchester Jazz Festival in recent years with bands such as The Felonious Monks and HSQ+2 and has also toured with the singer Carmel.

Dave Whelan was drawn to music courtesy of the muppet show band and a Beatles songbook purchased by his father to introduce his kids to the piano , however Dave was not too impressed by the piano and decided that guitar was the way to go..
John Martyn, Rory Gallagher, Steve Cooney, Neil Young, Paul Brady and Joni Mitchell all influence his playing and interest in tunings. From garage bands to touring Ireland and England with trad, rock, blues and some funk for good measure, Dave harnessed knowledge from learned and wise musicians.
Currently living and working in Cork, Ireland.

Catch Moody Elf at Stockport Fringe Festival. 2pm on Sunday 31st August@ 7 Miles Out (The Teenage Market Shop) Market Place, Stockport, SK1 1ES,
