Biography

Formerly the singer with the group Carlotta, Elin Fflur rose to prominence after siging the winning song, ‘Harbwr Diogel’, in the 2002 Cân i Gymru (Song for Wales) competition. But she had her first taste of performing at the age of three, singing at an Eisteddfod.

Soon after leaving Carlotta, Elin became the lead singer of the Anglesey-based group Y Moniars, along with songwriter Arfon Wyn (who wrote the song ‘Harbwr Diogel’). The group enjoyed a successful spell with the release of their first album ‘Harbwr Diogel’.

Taking a year out from studying for a criminology degree at Bangor University, Elin recorded her debut solo album ‘Dim Gair’ (No Words). Released on the Welsh label Sain in December 2003, it was an instant success, mixing rock ballads and lush orchestration with folk songs and adult-oriented pop.

“It’s something I’ve always wanted to do - a solo CD,” she said. “I’ve recorded other things in the past but this is the first time it feels really like mine. I can’t wait for people to hear it. Every song on the album comes from personal experiences.”

With a diverse collection songs derived from personal experiences, and her natural charisma and talent evident, ‘Dim Gair’ marked the point at which Elin’s talent was finally flourishing.

Now based in Cardiff, she is one of the new generation of Welsh-language singer-songwriters who are helping to transform the Welsh music scene.

    Globalisation has caused many positive things, but if it comes to music - i'm not that sure. i have enough of domination the Anglosaxon English music. P.S. "Adenydd" is an awesome song! Definitely my favourite if it comes to songs in Welsh.

    It is not her fault of being underrated. It is partly because the big international music companies promote only the English music, and partly because the ignorance of the inculturate, "globalized" (more correctly brainwashed) audience, who demand cheap music sung only in English, with meaningless verses. This is globalisation, destroying of the cultures and languages, the richness of our world. I read the lyrics of her songs and is talking about the disappearing of a great and very old culture and language like the Welsh, because the English influence. I just wish that Elin Fflur to never give up to sing in Welsh and not to obey to this cultural and linguistic genocide.

    I guess part of the reason for that is that it's not sung in English..
