ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Following three years of the Chicago life, Nellie Eve picked up the pieces of her heart and went back to Michigan to sew them back together. With three months on an organic farm on Lake Michigan in the Lower Peninsula, and four months of solitude in a cabin on Lake Superior in the Upper Peninsula, Nellie Eve began to manifest her new sound.

For her 21st birthday Nellie Eve’s mother gave her a banjo. Three months later a new album began to surface. Released in February of 2006, “December Songs” reflects a chapter of isolation, self discovery, awe of the natural world and of course, some more heartbreak.

December Songs by Nellie Eve has a gentle sonic quietness
December Songs by Nellie Eve has a gentle sonic quietness juxtaposed by themes of alienation, loneliness, lost love and tenderness. Nellie Eve’s voice is soft and clear, rough and bold, sexy and sweet all at the same time. The songs, which cover the universal emotions of love, longing and anger, come from Nellie Eve’s unique personal experiences.

The performances are sincere and honest, with a pure and rare beauty. The album opens with Daisy, Seth and Me - an affectionate look at friendship. The next song, A/V Club, deals with intense isolation,denial and conformity. Off Triple A is tender and sweet with it’s banjo arpeggios. Rock and Roll Boys is an acoustic version of the song from Accepting Infinity that holds up well here. Precious is a beautiful observation of life from several perspectives. Fast Train with it’s CD tracks/Lover analogy works well with its story of moving too fast into a romantic relationship. The album ends with Lavender, a remembrance of love lost.

Nellie Eve’s December Songs is a sincere, unpolished gem in the ocean of overhyped and overproduced music that is available today.
