#131 | Quarantine Sessions 9: Bród 2020 with Eve Belle

One of the participants in “Women in Harmony”, a charity single for Safe Ireland (which tackles domestic abuse) is Eve Belle, a singer songwriter from Donegal. While still in college, she signed with the influential Rubyworks label – the very same people who discovered Hozier and Rodrigo Y Gabriela.
In today’s episode she tells Darach and Clodagh about the creative process, moving from the songwriting process to live performance. She talks about how quarantine times have made people conscious of the role of the arts while also presenting new challenges and opportunities for musicians. She talks about supporting Hozier after performing one of his songs in the Leaving Cert music exam. And she talks about Irish, and how her experience of moving to the Gaeltacht as a child shaped her feelings for languages.
