New York, NY (Top40 Charts) The Institute of Contemporary Music Performance is delighted to announce that songwriting graduate Elena Tonra, aka 'Daughter', has made her mark on the big stage with two outstanding performances at Reading and Leeds festivals.

Featured on the world-renowned 'BBC Introducing' stage, Daughter performed to a jam-packed tent, and received great feedback from a crowd who were more than ready to appreciate her soaring melodies and angelic vocals. Previous acts that have performed on BBC's Introducing stage include Florence and the Machine, Biffy Clyro, Ed Sheeran, and Everything Everything.

After reaching No 3 in the Most Popular Song Chart, Daughter were thrust in to the spotlight once again, gaining their first national radio play on BBC 6 Music w/ Tom Robinson and first national radio session on Jo Good's BBC London. Stakes were raised once again when The Independent's Barometer column tipped her as a' One to Watch' because of "beautifully-sung, literary folk" and "ethereal melancholy".

Daughter was chosen by the BBC to feature on their Introducing Stage along with other top up and coming artists from the UK. It's a fantastic achievement and we're sure it's only the start of a very bright future for her. The Institute would like to congratulate Elena and wish her all the best with her career.
