Eleanor Friedberger (born September 2, 1976 in Oak Park, Illinois) is an American musician most famous for being one half of the indie rock duo The Fiery Furnaces, along with her older brother Matthew Friedberger. In the band she contributes the majority of the vocals both on record and during their live performances. Friedberger grew up singing with her grandmother Olga Sarantos and family in a Greek Orthodox Church. She previously dated both Britt Daniel of Spoon (band) and Alex Kapranos of the Scottish rock band Franz Ferdinand, and the band's song "Eleanor Put Your Boots On" is considered by fans of both bands to be about her.
