Hailing from 'deepest Donegal', the Hot Press Hot for 2021 act was signed very early to Rubyworks Records - deservedly scoring hot-ticket support slots with the likes of Hozier and Wild Youth as a result.
Rising musician Eve Belle has just shared her 'Other Voices Courage' acoustic session EP, and is capping off her latest release with another one of her beautiful livestream performances.
Set in Ulster's Glenveagh Castle alongside Neil Hannon and Cathy Davey, the location only emphasised how special the artist's potential for live shows really is.
"Other Voices has been a huge part of my career," Belle wrote on her Instagram page.
"Playing the Music Trail down in Dingle was an absolutely magical experience, in spite of the belter of a storm that arrived that weekend. It was an honour to be invited back this year to be part of the #Courage series...This EP is so special to me as a part of that experience."
The EP features acoustic versions of her tracks 'Smithereens', 'Please Don't Check Your Messages' and 'Begging for Rain' - taken from her debut album, In Between Moments.
"Releasing new music at a time like this is definitely nerve-wracking, but this project is really special to me and I hope you love it too."
Releasing her LP In Between Moments in October 2020; the project chronicles Belle’s personal experiences and sees the singer carefully mining the depths of her own emotion.
Her honey-toned vocals allow the vulnerability of her songwriting to stand out from the crowd of pop ballads, with a hint of Taylor Swift about her honesty.
"Recorded primarily in London, and steered by Belle’s crystalline voice and world-weary lyricism, In Between Moments is a superb collection of songs," Tanis Smither wrote in her Hot Press review of the work.
