Reliably informed

Singer-songwriter Eve Simpson drops her latest single, More Of You. The track tells a bittersweet tale of an almost love and comes complete with tenderly played piano and evocative string arrangements, as well as an effortless lead vocal surrounded by lots of lovely harmonies. 

Here, the artist tackles seven randomly generated questions…

1. If you could instantly master any musical instrument, which one would you choose?
Definitely the fiddle… it speaks to my soul whenever I hear it played. I have so much admiration for the skill and technique and would love to dedicate some time to picking it up one day. 
 
2. What’s a place you’ve always wanted to visit, and why?
I know this question is probably pointing towards my dream country/holiday… but I always want to visit my Grandparents time and time again. The older I get, the less I get to see them, and the more I want too. They’re the best, and childhood bottled up. I’m so lucky! 
 
3. If you could have dinner with any fictional character, who would it be and what would you talk about?
I would love to chat to Karen Sirko from Daisy Jones & The Six. I’d like to ask her how I can get better a soloing on the keys – I’ve become obsessed with getting better at playing/improvising, and think she’s an absolute badass. 
 
4. What’s a skill or hobby you’ve picked up during the pandemic?
Honestly, prioritising my mental health due to it being such a difficult time, which has led to much happier life for me. I think leading a life true to your values is a skill I’m always working on now. 
 
5. If you could live in a different time period, which one would you pick?
I would like to live as a teenager in the 80s so I could go radge with my Mam to Madonna in the nightclubs in South Shields. 
 
6. What’s the most interesting fact you’ve learned recently?
That Prince wrote Manic Monday by The Bangles! I learnt this in a dressing room before I played a show in Barnsley at the weekend – how class! 
 
7. If you could switch lives with someone for a day, who would it be and why?
Definitely my sister, because she has the most amazing dog, and I’d love to cuddle Leia (the dog) for 24hrs. Also my sister is the kindest person ever, so it would be a wonder to be that kind for a day!
