Journey Maker Reviews
"Absolutely fantastic!" - Beth Nielsen Chapman
"This is music made by someone who has been broken and remade, not someone who is 'trying' to write songs." - Ron Block of Alison Krauss & Union Station
"The songs feel personal rather than preachy and even those of us who have only been born once(!) will relish Patterson's warm, sincere-sounding singing, attractive melodies and expert musicianship with pianist Tommy Chambers and violinist Seonaid Aitken soloing strikingly." - Maverick Magazine (Nov/Dec '19 issue)
BROKEN: the first single from Journey Maker
BUY THE NEW ALBUM: Journey Maker
Journey Maker is a collection of vibrant, heartfelt songs chronicling Eilidh’s spiritual journey after coming through a difficult time. From the revelatory first single 'Broken', to the hopeful wait for wholeness in ‘The Waiting Room’, to the confident trust in ‘Shepherd’, Eilidh takes the listener on a journey of brokenness to healing, using pop, country and bluegrass as the modes of transport. Eilidh’s honest songwriting and crystal clear vocals form the backbone of this truly inspirational record. Every song displays the warmth and intimacy of this deeply engaging songwriter.

"A very impressive release from the Northern Ireland star....her vocals wrap around you like a blanket in winter...she sounds better than ever." - Maverick Magazine (Read full review HERE)
"Eilidh shows a real talent for capturing a hook and melody to match her beautiful vocals and engaging words. In the days of singles and radio charts, the title track would have featured as a prime example of how to deliver a hit. This is a very strong comeback statement and one that merits your attention." - Lonesome Highway (Read full review HERE)
“The voice is pure, the vibe is positive and the songs are the strongest she’s ever written. Every tune will put a smile on your face and lift your heart. If you’re looking for a little warmth and happiness come on in. This is the album for you.” - Ralph McLean, BBC Radio Ulster
"Sunshine is absolutely gorgeous! Eilidh's voice is velvet and the songs are fantastic. I love it!" - Beth Nielsen Chapman
SUNSHINE - released summer 2018
Eilidh is delighted to announce the arrival of her new album, Sunshine. Recorded in Spring 2018 with award-winning engineer Sandy Jones at Foundry Music Lab, Motherwell, Scotland; Eilidh is releasing this new collection of songs 7 years after her last album, This Is Now. Featuring Eilidh on the ukelele, the title track 'Sunshine' is an upbeat summer anthem already adopted by Derry's BBC Radio Foyle as "the song of the summer". Other highlights include 'A Good Day' (featuring Cup O' Joe), and a brand new version of 'When I Don't Feel Like Singing Anymore' with Yvonne Lyon on backing vocals and Ron Block on guitar. A sparkling offering from start to finish, this album showcases Eilidh at her finest as writer, singer and for the first time, co-producer.
