Bio

I've just released my debut album "Me, the Sea & Stars", an album examining loss and transience made with a baby kicking in the belly. It was built in parts at Nick Huggin's house by the sea, and finished in bedrooms, studios and a church. It was a labour of love and a bunch of songs I carried around for a couple of years and brought to life by the music of my friends Melisa Collins (violin) Tom Heathcote (bass) Mark Gretton (drums) and guests on horns, banjo and singing. A grant made being pregnant and making an album possible and inevitable. It is part of the album's story as the songs explore the edge of life and all the awe and grief that comes with looking at the questions we can't answer. With a bit of love and the ocean thrown in. For a more comprehensive and professional history, visit the website at www.evapopov.com. We are very excited to have just won the Triple J Fuse Music Competition - thankyou.

I dig this track. Very inviting and has the fun yet challenging feeling of a Gomez song.

Hillbilly music, least your not from Adelaide, you had me with the melody. Not sold on the voice though. Once again that Led Zep 3 feeling. Would like to hear the finished product as the production is sloppy, infact the whole thing is a little too lose.

Never been into female Leonard Cohen compleate with resplendent bells aka Suszane. Then again I'm not female and it would probably have more resonance with a female audience. I'm just not convincied it seams to meander for too long. At least with Cohen you want to slash your writs at the end of it all or at least you feel his passion or love.

Never been into female Leonard Cohen compleate with resplendent bells aka Suszane. Then again I'm not female and it would probably have more resonance with a female audience. I'm just not convincied it seams to meander for too long. At least with Cohen you want to slash your writs at the end of it all or at least you feel his passion or love. On saying all that it may just be the production, I know that Cohen's production on his earlier stuff is at best minimalistic but that's what make it beliavable. This mix is just too in your face.
