Northern Irish singer-songwriter Alana Henderson's released her debut EP "Wax & Wane" in 2014-
 "a veritable pandoras box of burrowing folk-noir.....bounding forth with gallant imagination and delicate, melodic finesse" (The Thin Air) 
Her sound fuses her folk roots with pop sensibility, fragile delicate vocals, emotive cello and disarmingly honest lyrics. Whilst hers are unapologetically romantic tales of lost love and broken relationships, there is something fresh and strikingly original in the delivery and the angles from which she launches her tales. -
"Henderson is an original voice who exudes musicality. She's still paying her dues but her craft is well and truly honed" (Culture NI)
After spending 2014 establishing herself as an up-and- coming Irish solo-artist at home and across Europe, Alana was invited by Irish star 'Hozier' to join him on his worldwide tour throughout 2015 & 2016 as featured cellist, vocalist and occasional support act. This huge worldwide tour gave her a platform to perform in front of appreciative audiences across the globe, also garnering her fans of her own and a following for her solo work.
Alana is now back on home-ground and is working on material for her debut album which is planned to be released in early/mid 2017.

"Midway through the set, Hozier brought out singer Alana Henderson, who may have earned even louder screams from fans than the long-haired troubadour. Singing the serene yet morbid duet In a Week off his self-titled debut album, the two transfixed the crowd with their pitch-perfect harmony and sparse performance, standing in a spotlight center stage as Hozier plucked his guitar." (USA Today)

 

"Naturally, Emerald Isle folk informs everything happening. Hozier and singer Alana Henderson’s duet on the morbid-but-mesmerizing In A Week was exceptional." (Vancouver Sun)
