"Unsung Heroes of Maryland"

You usually don't see too many female bands venturing into the Rock genre. This 3 female, 1 male, Rock band Poor Eve is beyond ridiculous, and I mean that in a good way. When listening to them I am immediately brought back to the 90's grunge scene, then the next second back in the modern rock era. If you listen close enough, you can even pick up on some 80's rock influences. They have the ability to draw from a vast amount of genres and mend them into their own version of Rock, which is highly respectable in my eyes. I honestly would not have expected this type of muscial geniusness to come out of smaller band like Poor Eve. If you want to venture into a new musical genre, then check out Poor Eve!

"Poor Eve feature"

After doing a feature on fellow Southern Maryland based band “Kitten on Capitol Hill”, I got an e-mail from Selena Benally of the band, Poor Eve. She sent me a link to the band’s page. After a quick reading, it seems that the band is based in Waldorf, MD and has members from my neck of the woods. For people that aren’t aware, I actually went out to take guitar lessons in Waldorf at this guitar shop called “Hot Licks.” Interesting enough, she worked there and we knew a lot of the same people. I don’t think we’ve met, but on the other hand, I was only frequenting the shop for about five years.

Anyway enough of the nostalgic back story, their overall sound is really all over the place. Like any band, they’re influenced and are fans of music, their taste span from going from indie/garage rock Sleater Kinney to old school gangsta rap like NWA, go figure. After repeated listens, the best way to describe their sound is to imagine your younger sibling’s rummaging around music collection while you’re out on a date and coming back early finding them blasting your CDs. In other words, it’s a feeling of “HEY! GET YOUR GRUBBY HANDS OFF MY SHIT AND I’M SO PROUD OF YOU!”

“Make Way!”

This is the first song on their Purevolume page and like they say, always make a big impression. “Make Way!” is an anthem-y, chugging rhythm guitar throughout rocker. The main riff kind of reminds me of Hashpipe by Weezer.

“Conversations with Land and Sea”

The dynamics throughout the song really live up to the song. Kind of sounds like a wave hitting the beach. Really, it’s kind of orchestral at some points. Like chamber music arranged for a rock band.

All and all, Poor Eve is a very melodic, kind of poppy yet very dramatic band where even though I could see some improvements that could have been made in mixing and other quirks, the general public wouldn’t notice ‘em.

For anybody into stuff like Sleater-Kinney, Jimmy Eat World or Taking Back Sunday I’d recommend giving Poor Eve a listen.

A bit of history:

Poor Eve started back in the fall of 2004 when Selena and Dayron began jammin' on guitar and decided they should form a band together. They gathered fellow musicians here and there while in high school, eventually setting out to play some local shows. Soon college-time came around and they went their separate ways up and down the coast.

Jump ahead to 2010, several bands, and musical projects later Selena and Dayron decide it's time to put Poor Eve back on the map. So along comes Anjalee from Bowie, MD on drums, and eventually Mel from the band Miseuphoria on bass, and Voila!

Ever since they have been hittin' the stage HARD, expanding their fanbase, and making some amazing friends along the way.


Just a list of some influences to give you an idea of where we're coming from:

Bad Religion, Metallica, Tracy Bonham, Taking Back Sunday, Cream, Alkaline Trio, M.I.A., L7, The Thermals, Elliott Smith, N.W.A, My Chemical Romance, Iron Maiden, The Runaways, Black Sabbath.
