One half of Chicago Indie-rock duo The Fiery Furnaces and former partner of Alex from Franz Ferdinand (their song 'Eleanor Put Your Boots On' was written for her!).
As a solo artist, Eleanor has released four albums of pure perfect Indiepop, a sound far more accessible than the arty experimental works of her former band. "No-fuss, featherlight acoustic pop songs weave into one another seamlessly, Friedberger’s melodies familiar and redolent of artists like Harry Nilsson and Neil Young without playing like nostalgia" - Pitchfork.
Eleanor Friedberger tour dates listed on Ents24.com since Sep 2011.
