With over a million collective streams across Spotify alone, Melbourne producer, singer and songwriter Eilish Gilligan has made a big mark over the past couple years, releasing incredible stand-alone singles and thoughtful, eccentric EPs that showcase the vulnerability of an innate and reflective songwriter and producer, coupled with powerful pop production and arrangements.
In the midst of the COVID-19 pandemic, Eilish created a space for her community online through Twitch, streaming to thousands of followers and regularly featuring on the Front Page of the platform. She wrote, produced and engineered her debut EP 'Hospital' in 2020; a soft yet piercing collection of music evocative of Phoebe Bridgers and Lorde, Eilish proved her artistic versatility once again. She celebrated the release with a sold out show at The Corner Hotel in January 2021, and won the coveted, industry-voted ‘Best Producer’ accolade at the 2021 Music Victoria awards for her efforts.
In 2021, Eilish released her boldest, most eccentric record to date; the EP 'First One To Leave The Party'; where 'Hospital' was soft, quiet, emotional, 'First One To Leave The Party' is unabashed, innovative, surprising and uplifting pop. The EP features collaborations with Gab Strum (Japanese Wallpaper), Alex Lahey, Lach Bostock (mansionair) and was produced by Dave K Haddad (Genesis Owusu, Montaigne).
Eilish is extremely excited to return to the stage for her first headline show of 2022, as she says, "The Ev is my favourite venue in Melbourne - and I cannot wait to play on that stage again. I've put together a really special lineup for this show and I'm really looking forward to sharing all the music I've released over the last two years with you, live, finally!"
