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!

Internationally acclaimed, Eilidh (pronounced I-Lee) Patterson is a warm, engaging performer of startling clarity. With songs that cut straight to the heart, delightfully accurate guitar playing and crystal clear vocals, Eilidh immediately connects with audiences everywhere. In recent years, she has performed in the States, the UK and in Europe. Eilidh’s relaxed stage presence invites the listener to sit back and enjoy her unique take on life and love. From her roots in Derry and gospel music, Eilidh has developed a unique musical identity, garnering rave reviews for her songs which combine soul, blues, pop and contemporary folk.
In August of this year, Eilidh released her fifth album, Journey Maker, with its first single, Broken. 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.
The title track of her last album, Sunshine, is an upbeat summer anthem which was adopted by Derry’s BBC Radio Foyle as “the song of the summer” last year.
