Hailing from Clonakilty Ireland, Eve Clague is a singer-songwriter who
draws on the rich variety of music she grew up with in her home and
community to create a highly personal and direct style of song
With a band made up of well known players from Cork’s jazz and neo soul
scene and featuring some of her own string arrangements, Eve’s debut
EP Young Naive Me crosses genres very naturally in songs which centre
around Eve’s acoustic guitar and deeply honest vocal style.
Since its release in April of 2019, the EP has received national radio
play in Ireland as well as airplay on regional stations at home and
in the UK, with reviews from a number of prominent blogs including
Ireland’s nialler9.com, praising her distinctive voice and a timeless
quality to the songwriting and arrangements.
Having left school at the age of 15, Eve has clocked up more hours as
a working musician than most artist in their early twenties, touring
nationally with a number of Cork based bands as a vocalist and sax
player. However it was her enrolment in Corks school of music in 2014
which really gave Eve the time and space to develop her songwriting
and collaborate with a huge range of like minded musicians. Having
graduated in October 2018, Eve wasted no time as she immediately began
work on recording Young Naive Me with her band at
Wavefield Recording Studios.
Following the EP’s release, Eve has played numerous shows both solo
and with her band such as Cork’s Quarter Block Party, The Ballydehob
jazz festival and her own packed out release party in March.
The rest of 2019 will see eve play more shows at home and abroad,
including this years Body and Soul festival, as well as continuing to
develop songs for her next release.
