What they say…

"Eve Selis isn't just a 'singer' — she's an emotion transducer who converts country, R&B, blues, folk, and rock 'n' roll signals into a megawatt zap that galvanizes everyone in its path. And as with fellow femme-furnace front-women Bonnie Raitt, Joan Osborne, Maria McKee, Melissa Etheridge, and Lydia Pense, the cauterizing power of Selis's voice can arc-weld material from almost any genre into a personal manifesto. John D'Agostino

From the west coast of America, Eve Selis has been impressing audiences across the world with her powerful and distinctive vocals. Winner of the 2005 San Diego Best Americana award, the California-based singer mixes country with R&B, blues and folk. Her vocals are strong and her band includes some of Southern California's finest musicians. Eve has been compared to Melissa Etheridge, Bonnie Raitt and Joan Osborne but has more than proved herself as an artist in her own right - she is one of the top female artists on music download site and has had ten number one songs in various charts.

On stage Eve delivers a stunning performance with equal parts innocence and authority, always soulful, strong and sexy. Her voice is variously described as passionate, melodic, raspy and sweet, with a phenomenal range. She has opened for Crosby, Stills & Nash who dedicated "Darkstar" to her after a mesmerizing set.

Eve is not only a writer and performer but is also committed to helping less fortunate people and supports various charities including one for battered women and abused children.

"A gifted writer and electrifying singer who stands head and shoulders above many of her big name contemporaries"  Maverick magazine

"One of the best shows I've ever seen in the U.K.Bob Harris, BBC2

"A modern day queen of 'Roadhouse Rock', Eve blends soaring pop melodies with hard-hitting rock & roll and alternative country twang, topped off with a passionate and powerful delivery. Her live performances with a kick-ass band are something to behold"

What we say…
After a short break to have a baby, Eve is back with a superb new CD, out on 31 May, co-written by her long-time musical partner and wonderful guitarist, Mark Intravaia, and she’s touring with a full band including ‘Cactus’ Jim Soldi (Johnny Cash Band)  – a guaranteed top show!

Support tonight is from UK's Chris Simmons and New Yorker Danielle Gasparro. "In the spring of 2007, Chris met NYC based singer-songwriter Danielle Gasparro on an Italian hillside, when they were both participant in a song-writing retreat hosted by Chris Difford. Since then, they have stayed connected as inspired friends, peers and collaborators. This June and July, Chris and Danielle will be taking their songs and spirits to the road, and hopefully, into the hearts and minds of many. With their "Primo Volo" Tour, a series of special double-bill concerts slated for both sides of the pond represent the debut touring for each of these dynamic artists".
