'Eve Simpson has a voice as pure as a mountain stream, and boy can she write' - The Crack Magazine
Releasing her debut Shelter EP at 17, Eve juggled her last year of A Levels with opening the Northern leg of The Martha Reeves & The Vandellas tour, and supporting the likes of The Lake Poets, Cattle & Cane and American Young, adding to an extensive list of support slots that already included Beth Nielsen Chapman, UB40 and Nikki Lane. 2018 added to the chart success of Shelter EP; Eve’s sophomore release: ‘Gloria, I’m Home’, reached the no.2 spot on the iTunes Singer/Songwriter chart. Gloria gained Eve frequent airplay on Nick Roberts’ BBC Introducing show, advancing on her opening slot at the 2017 Evolution Emerging BBC Introducing stage, a spot which earned Eve airplay on Tom Robinson’s BBC 6 show for ‘Austerity’. As well as her solo project, Eve writes and gigs throughout the UK as 1/6th of ‘Kathryn Tickell and Superfolkus’. Collaborative writing has seen Eve appear on Tickell’s ‘Water of Tyne’ release; and, compose a score on South Shields’ shipyard women for Shona Thompson’s: ‘A Kind of Seeing’ film, which received a FOCAL International Film Award for ‘Best Footage on Innovative Platforms’.
