Singer, songwriter, and multi-instrumentalist Eleanor Tallie delivers a groove reminiscent of the late legend Teena Marie in the form of a new single called “Promised Land.” The seminal record was penned about a failed relationship, but Eleanor’s deep and layered approach gives various depictions including issues in America’s social and political climates.
“If the glove don’t fit the hand… why pretend you understand?” she strikes. “Afraid of a change… you might just find the promise land.”
“‘Promised Land’ is an expression, describing that sense of peace in relationships with others, and with ourselves.
The song was written in retrospect about a relationship gone wrong, and the conclusions and new hopes that grew from it,” Eleanor tells Singersroom. “Musically, ‘Promised Land’ has a sound I’ve been dreaming and working to create since I started my solo project in 2016.”
Eleanor Tallie has been captivated by the groove of American music since her childhood in Israel. Classically trained on the cello and raised in a household of musicians, she began writing original lyrics and music when she was 12 years old and studied classical music for 15 years. After completing her studies, she traveled throughout Israel performing original songs in Hebrew.
