Elk - Beech

Elk is 21 year old Leeds based multi-instrumentalist Joey Donnelly, whose brooding and beguiling work on debut
album “Beech” marries up the sound of Daudi Matsiko, Florist and Talons with the lyrical depth of Phoebe Bridgers.
“I love how dark and honest her lyrics are at times,” says Joey of Bridger’s writing, “and I tried to use that whilst writing the Elk songs.”

Working with brother Mikey in his band Miles, Joey began writing the music that would become Elk. Mikey did what all good big brothers do and kicked Joey out of the band. “He made me do my own stuff, so he’s to thank for Elk. I’ve learnt a lot from him over the years about song-writing and just being a good person.”
The 7 songs that make up Beech were written and recorded at the family home in York, over a 6-month period.

“Yue” written and performed by Elk – taken from the album “Beech” released by Bad Paintings 28th June 2019.
