While growing up in London, Eve first explored songwriting as a form of catharsis, adopting the stream-of-consciousness style that still informs her music today – by starting to play whatever she feels, following that feeling and not editing much afterwards. The result is a fresh, raw and quite unique sound.
With her graceful musicality honed in part by taking up violin at a young age, Owen names her ukulele-playing grandfather among her main influences but she also notes that finding artists like Bob Dylan and Joan Baez at age 14 indelibly altered her musical path. And we’re so glad it did. Her 2020 debut album Don’t Let The Ink Dry, is one of our favourites.
