El May


Lara Meyerratken, aka El May, is a very talented singer-songwriter from the land down under.
Her style of melodic songwriting and mellow rock instrumentation with a folksy base is something to enjoy..
El May is currently based in Los Angeles, although from what I see she could be anywhere at any given time.

El May’s New album The Other Person Is You on CD, LP & digital out August 26th in North America, September 15th in Europe.

Anyway, we are here for the music. So lets get to it,

Here’s El May sweetly sharing her music with strangers.
Such beautiful music too.
I Played a Role


Recorded live @ Pandora Whiteboard Sessions, with her band Scott and Scott. Such a warm voice and terrific accompaniment.
I’m really loving this song.
Lessons Appear


A dark atmospheric video for a really cool song.
This one really rocks along, great percussion with a touch of shoegaze.

I had to close with this one, the acoustic version of the track above. Allegedly no guitars were harmed in the making of this video.
Just some fun in the Australian sun. I love the contrast in the two versions.
