West of Eden

West of EdenBiography

For a decade West of Eden has thrilled audiences with their unique Celtic folk rock. The highest of songwriting standards combined with the extraordinary voice of singer Jenny Schaub has earned them a solid reputation amongst critics around the globe. The band has become accustomed to being called “simply phenomenal” (Rock ‘n’ Reel). “masters of their genre” (UNT) and “the best living example of the folk rock genre in action” (Irish Music Magazine)!

West of Eden has toured Ireland, Benelux and Scandinavia. They played at the Celtic Connections Festival in Glasgow, Scotland, and in 2009, they performed a multi-media concert with members of the Swedish National Orchestra at the Concert Hall in Gothenburg.

“Safe Crossing” is the band’s seventh album, and their finest offering yet. It features thirteen strong, carefully crafted songs that carry stories about people and shipwrecks outside Cornwall and around the Scilly Islands. West of Eden delivers a broad palette of Celtic music that echoes of their love for everything from traditional tunes to contemporary folk. But make no mistake: whether intimate acoustic storytelling, traditional tunes or catchy uplifting folk rock, West of Eden has a unique and soulful sound of their own!

The album was recorded on location at Sawmills Studio (Robert Plant, Oasis and many more) and features guest performances by the Irish flute player Steph Geremia, Swedish singer/songwriter Christian Kjellvander and The Celtic Brass Quartet.

Swedish by birth they may be, but in heart and soul they are definitely Celtic!
