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.

Sounds like what a collaboration between the Waifs and My Friend the Chocolate Cake might sound like. There are all sorts of weird and quirky sounds from various instruments. This is led by Eva's strong rootsy voice. This is a brave effort that is pulled off with magnificent flair!

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. I love Led Zep 3 so it gets three start because of that, will have keep my eye open for your live show, that will tell me how tight your band i...
