Eve Blackwater began her career as an actress at age seven, when she accidentally wound up cast as the Cheshire Cat in a local production of Alice in Wonderland. She went on to graduate from NYU’s Tisch School of the Arts, perform in many productions of Shakespeare in the Park, write and direct her own plays, and star in the cult horror movie Gothkill. But after a few more years of directors bossing her around, Eve announced “I quit!” and ran away to become a fire-swallower in the circus. In between her death-defying acts, she taught herself to play guitar and write songs. Now she chases danger and follows adventure in her songs, drawing on the music of the Mississippi Delta and fairy tales of the brothers Grimm as inspiration.
