"Piano Bar - Festival Centre - Come Away With Eve"

A lot of musicians feel uncomfortable when they’re told they’re marketable. They think it takes away from their artistic integrity.

But this industry is cruel enough without ignoring some of the attributes that you might be able to use to your advantage.

Miss Eve Goonan, a singer/songwriter from NSW is very marketable. She’s young, attractive and writes songs that wouldn’t be out of place on radio or soundtracking romantic dramas on TV.

Sitting somewhere on the spectrum between Tori Amos and Norah Jones, Goonan has a lilting, bordering-on-classical voice to go with her light, infectious piano pop. Though she’s still finding her way as a performer, Goonan deserves attention. - The Advertiser

Bio

Eve Goonan (aka Evy G) writes and sings hauntingly beautiful songs and has come a long way since her first EP at age 17. Her song writing journey began as a 10 year old recording songs onto a tape deck and by the time she was 15 she had privately penned over 150 original songs. The then very young and shy artist kept her writing talent close to her chest until her first EP met with, to her surprise, positive reviews.

Unlike many singers who started out performing and then later took to song writing to expand their skills, Eve’s original motivation to perform was to give voice to the songs she wanted the world to hear, and he credits her early classical piano training as giving her the technique to compose with fewer limitations.

A regular performer on the Sydney music circuit for many years, Eve has performed sold out shows at the Adelaide Fringe Festival, had her music broadcast on Songwriters Across Australia and Radio Adelaide, and had her live performances televised on TVS. Her raw and beautiful 2008 Acoustic EP also saw her become a finalist in the 2009 APRA Professional Development Awards.

As is reflected in the song’s autobiographical content, for Eve there is little separation between her art and her life; each gives breath to the other and her growth into womanhood has been intimately documented in her ever expanding song collection. Authenticity is key, and her music is inspired as much by her inner emotional landscape as by her incessant questioning of life, truth and her place in the world. With her expressive piano stylings and organic approach to song writing, it is no surprise that she has often been compared to greats such as Tori Amos, Sarah McLachlan and Norah Jones.

“The style and genre of song I wrote at age 12 is not much different to the songs I write now and my songs have often sat in two strands, either love songs or inspirational/ reflective songs. When I sit down to write a song I still feel like I’m that 12 year old in a sense as I’m writing from the same raw emotional space. I believe music is a language for the heart and since the heart is timeless, the essence of great music is also timeless.”
