El Cosgrove is a self-confessed red-headed, boot-wearing, alt-country singer-songwriter. The 2016 CMAA Academy Of Country Music graduate has drawn upon her upbringing in rural Queensland and other life experiences for her debut single, ‘The Unfamiliar’.
This track is all about El’s love of travelling and experiencing rural life on the road. Always feeling a sense of calm and belonging whilst driving and experiencing places off the beaten track, El believes this is most likely influenced by her upbringing on a farm near Dalby, in the Queensland Darling Downs. El remembers, “Some of my earliest memories are driving between our farms with my family doing the many necessary jobs including carting machinery or moving and feeding cattle.”
After meeting producer Matt Fell, when he was a guest speaker during her time at the academy earlier this year, El knew she’d found the perfect person to bring her music to life. Once they had arranged to work together El flew down to Sydney and lived in Love Hz studios for one whirlwind week in which the EP was produced. Matt playing various instruments, Glen Hannah on guitars and Josh Schuberth on percussion.
Australia’s country music capital will always be special to El – it’s here she was privileged to have co-written songs with both Kasey Chambers and Ashleigh Dallas, share the stage with the likes of Catherine Britt, Lyn Bowtell, Kevin Bennett, Dobe Newton and Roger Corbett (The Bushwackers), Karl Brodie and fellow academy students, as well as having the opportunity to work with Amber Lawrence, Aleyce Simmonds and more. The debut EP “Guitars And Cigars” features five original songs and will be released during the 2017 Tamworth Country Music Festival.
