Elaine Howley & Crash Ensemble

This very special MusicTown event features is a collaboration between Cork-based producer and songwriter Elaine Howley, and acclaimed new music group, Crash Ensemble

Elaine Howley is a songwriter, vocalist and producer who merges a tapestry of experimental and analogue processes with a love for classic songwriting and melody. Immersed in both the music scene in her adopted home of Cork, and the DIY ethos of Ireland’s alternative music community, Elaine’s sound has grown out of collaborative practice, performance and exploration.

Howley is a member of psychedelic rock group The Altered Hours, ambient trio Crevice and cinematic duo HowlBux and co-hosts the Cosmosis Radio Show on Dublin Digital Radio. Howley released her first solo album 'The Distance Between Heart and Mouth' in 2022 through Touch Sensitive Records. The album saw a groundswell of support, was named as a future classic by Boomkat and was selected as The Thin Air’s album of the year in 2022. Since the album's release Elaine has been invited to play at the ICA London, The National Concert Hall Dublin & the Glucksman and Crawford galleries in Cork and toured extensively. Elaine also performed a live session for BBC6 music in 2023.

Pitchfork praised The Distance Between Heart & Mouth as “a spectral slow burn that refuses to trip over itself to get anywhere in particular. By absorbing the wisdom of the process, Howley permits her craft to resound deeper than ever”.

Led by cellist and Artistic Director, Kate Ellis, Crash Ensemble is Ireland’s leading new music ensemble; a group of world-class musicians who play the most adventurous, ground-breaking music of today.
