Cyra Elia was originally formed in 1996 in Preston and over the years the line-up has changed several times. Rachel Whittingham is a founding band member and has always been the main songwriter for the band.
The current members of Cyra Elia have been playing together since August 2009 when the band was reformed after a break of around 5 years. Our debut gig last year was at the popular "Headstock Festival" in Llandudno where we played to a crowd of several hundred people.
Our music seems to appeal to all ages and the band is suitable for pub & clubs gigs, festivals, weddings, corporate events and private parties.
Cyra Elia also hosts a fortnightly Open Mic Night in Llandudno and we regularly perform as a duo or a trio at these evenings.
