Travel journalist and singer-songwriter Eleea is in the city and will be performing her one and only show this Saturday.

Eleea works as a singer-songwriter on the Gold Coast and is an avid traveller and travel journalist.

Her upcoming show will at The Palace Hotel on Saturday, kicking off from 9pm.

“I’m very excited about this gig in Broken Hill, as I’ll be unveiling a lot of new music for the first time,” she said.

“These songs have been inspired by my travels - mostly pulled from ‘The Travel Collection’ of songs I’ve been writing, with a song inspired by each city/country that I’ve visited. 

“After traveling a lot in Asia over the years, I spent 5 months on a solo busking, couch surfing adventure through Europe in 2017. 

“Then in 2018 I was lucky enough to win a dream job as a travel blogger in Busabout Europe’s ‘Ultimate Travel Squad’, which took me on a four month paid trip traveling Europe.

“This is where I met my partner, Dan, in Amsterdam. 

“They’ve all definitely given me a lot of song writing material.”

Eleea has been performing since she was 15 and characterises her work as folk, acoustic pop.

“I use storytelling along with my original music.

“My show will be filled with lots of funny stories, new songs and storytelling - if you love all that; it’s a good reason to come out and see the show.”

Eleea said she’s enjoying her time in Broken Hill.

“It’s a beautiful country, when you travel around you can appreciate how big it is.

“There is a real beauty to it.

“It’s different environment and landscape than I am used too.

“It’s been a nice experience.” 

In her burgeoning career, she has released two albums; played numerous festivals (Edinburgh Fringe, Mullumbimby Music Festival, BLEACH*,  

Buskers By The Creek); featured on The Voice Australia (2015), supported touring acts (Karise Eden, Stonefield, Kate Martin); and has performed and busked throughout Australia and internationally. 

Aside from music, Eleea has also been a Miss Universe Australia national finalist (2014), Miss World Australia top 10 finalist (2016), and won the Miss World Australia talent section (2016). 

She’s also a strong ambassador for the Animal Welfare League of Queensland, and regularly volunteers her time and talents to children, animals and people with special needs.
