Cyra Elia are a folky-rock 5 piece band that enjoy performing an entertaining and lively mix of original songs along with upbeat and quirky covers.
Cyra Elia reformed in August 2009 after a break of around 5 years. After spending12 months performing short sets as a support act for several local bands and making appearances at festivals and charity events, acoustic folk-rock trio, Rachel, Greg & Marcus were eventually joined by bassist Joel and drummer John for several jam sessions at the regular Open Mic Nights that Rachel organises and hosts at The Cross Keys & The Gresham in Llandudno. The new line up felt comfortable and the band enjoyed rehearsing together, so in August 2010 Cyra Elia officially became a 5-piece band performing their debut gigs at The Conwy River Festival on Conwy Quay, followed by Headstock 2 & 3 (an outdoor festival at the King's Head in Llandudno).
Rachel has spent the past year or so writing a collection of songs for her first solo album. An EP showcasing some of these songs will hopefully be ready for release in the near future.
