“Eloise Alterman’s music is crafted to tear at your heartstrings” –



     Singer-songwriter Eloise Alterman has
shared Sad Bird (The 4AM
, a stripped down acoustic version of her
recently released label debut project, Sad Bird, available now via ATCO/Big Yellow Dog/Atlantic

     Produced by 2x GRAMMY® Award-winner Daniel
Tashian (Kacey Musgraves, Tenille Townes), Sad Bird (The 4AM Versions) was
first heralded with the devastatingly emotive ballad, “I Still Love You (The 4AM Version).”

     “Four in the morning is one of the oddest
says Eloise Alterman. “I’ve always called it the lonely
hour, as it doesn’t feel like morning and it doesn’t feel like night. It’s
almost like you’re stuck between two different days. I decided to call these
versions of Sad Bird ‘The 4AM Versions’ because they are stripped back, raw,
and softer – the way I would sing at the piano by myself at 4am.

Eloise Alterman   “4AM”

     Recently named by PEOPLE as one of the “Talented Emerging Artists
You Should Be Listening to All Summer Long
,” Eloise Alterman’s deeply
moving debut EP Sad Bird, produced by 8x GRAMMY® Award-winner Dave
Cobb (Brandi Carlile, Chris Stapleton), is highlighted by the lushly textured
single, “Her.” “Her” was met by praise from such outlets
as Glasse Factory, which declared it to be “a well-written,
honest track that’s lyrics convey the pain of knowing that the person you love
is enamoured with someone else.

     In addition, Alterman recently got a head start
on the holiday season with her touching new rendition of the classic “Blue Christmas,” originally performed in 1957 by Elvis Presley.


 Eloise Alterman creates music of exquisite
sensitivity, finespun songs that capture the subtlest nuances of heartache and
loss. A self-taught pianist/guitarist who began penning soul-baring songs in
her early teens while growing up in Detroit, Alterman moved to Nashville alone
at age 17, without knowing a soul in all of Music City. After spending years
working on her own to sharpen her craft, Big Yellow Dog Music’s Carla Wallace
signed her and brought her to Atlantic. Alterman soon joined with ATCO Records
(a recent reactivation of the iconic Atlantic Records imprint first founded in
1955, including previously signed acts like Genesis, the Bee Gees, Cher, Donny
Hathaway) and Full Stop Management (Harry Styles, Meghan Trainor, John Mayer)
on the strength of the music now showcased on Sad Bird – music
that Alterman is now sharing with the world.


     With an understated yet captivating sound
informed by longtime influences like Stevie Nicks and Joni Mitchell, Sad
 presents an up-close portrait of heartbreak, healing, and
self-discovery. Eloise Alterman boldly pushes outside her comfort zone to craft
the kind of timelessly poignant pop songs that cut right to the heart. Songs
like “the deceptively anthemic “Sad Bird Still Sings” – penned while
alone in a hotel room near Utah’s Zion National Park – reveal the emotional
intensity Alterman has brought to her music since she first started writing
songs on the piano in her family’s basement. Newly based in L.A. after six
years in Nashville, Alterman – whose recent TikTok cover of Fleetwood Mac’s “Dreams” went viral with over 3M views and 115K likes to
date – has already noticed a shift in her self-perception after so thoroughly
exploring the many stages of heartbreak.


       “Before I made this EP, I saw my sensitivity as a
negative thing—I felt like it meant I was weak, but now I feel so
Alterman. “I still struggle with some of the things I wrote about, but
it makes me feel good to know that people might take my songs and apply them to
their own lives. I hope it makes them feel better and more understood, and lets
them know that they’re not alone in their feelings.”
