The Enchanting Music of Eve Williams

Produced by Andrew Giddings

Eve Williams has a kind of sound that will appeal to the wider public. I think people who listen to ambient and indie folk will love her music.Those who are also into fine songwriting with classical flavour will certainly buy her recordings. The mesmerizing melodies of her songs are centered around her classically trained vocals. On top of this, her poetic lyrics will enchant you with their mystery and romantic flourishes.

Twenty Miles From Home is her album that’s released late last year. Her carrier single Oblivion (Co-written by Scottish artist Archie Atholl)is approaching 1000 plays via soundcloud and rising. The atmosphere of Twenty Miles From Home calls to mind bellowing curtains and the mysterious beauty of Northern Ireland where this singer/songwriter resides. When I read about her influences, I am pleased:  Kate Bush, Sarah Brightman, Enya, Maire Brennan, Peggy Lee, Dusty Springfield, Tennyson, Shakespeare and T.H.White.
