Eve

Áine Minogue

In cart Not available Out of stock

In a stirring departure from her past recordings, acclaimed Celtic harpist, vocalist, composer and arranger Áine Minogue will surprise – and soothe – listeners across the world with her new album entitled “Eve.”

Featuring a signature “fragile, lilting voice” throughout, Minogue’s fifteenth solo album contains 12 tracks that highlight her mesmerizing vocals, elegantly accompanied by her graceful play of the harp and skillful talents of renowned musicians Eugene Friesen on cello and strings; Jon Evans on bass, keyboards, percussion, guitar and mandolin; Seamus Egan on Irish whistles; Billy Novick on clarinet; and Alistair Halliday on harmony vocals.

A first for Minogue, the album is a compelling compilation of all original music written and composed by the award-winning singer and songwriter. It offers a captivating collection of emotive and expressive songs including “Love’s Sweet Refrain,” “Warrior or Healer,” “Song of the Lark,” “Before the World Was Made” and “The Garden.”

According to Minogue, inspiration for her new album, with its striking vocal, rather than instrumental, prominence, has its origins in what she describes as the “many definitions and varied manifestations of Eve” ranging from an “archetypical version as the mother of humanity or ‘Biblical Eve,’” as Minogue notes, to “a theatrical ‘Hollywood Eve’ version as portrayed by the collage of feminine images in the 1950 Academy Award-winning movie ‘All About Eve.’”

Minogue says that the album’s opening track, which shares the same title as the movie, was written during a viewing of the “exceptional and influential” film and that its lyrics, like those of the other 11 songs, “convey my own experience or relationship with Eve; who she is or what she is, who she may be or what she may be.”

She adds, however, that “the lyrics also enable or encourage, or perhaps empower, listeners, both women and men, to think about or appreciate their own views or beliefs about Eve, as well; who she was or what she was, who she can be or what she can be.”
