Eowyn

For as tiny as she is, Eowyn has an incredible stage presence. There is so much energy in her performance. She came out with Crashing and just kept things going from there.



Her vocals are absolutely amazing. Her voice flows through each song with waves of emotion and intensity. And she moves the entire time that she's on stage without missing a note.



Josh on guitars kept everybody pumped. He's actually kinda low-profile for a guitarist, but he pulls it off well. There's s sense of mystery about him since he moves a lot, but rarely engages the crowd. I think that draws their attention even more.



Charlie, on the other hand, seems to love the audience and knows how to work them. Also something unusual since most bassists tend to stay in the background. Not Charlie, though. But you'll see what I mean by that later.



Craig on drums kept excellent time. The percussion hit hard and nailed everything down. And having Steve on keys solidified the goth/industrial sound of Eowyn's music.



You can practically feel the energy in these next few pics.









Again, Eowyn has such a profound presence on the stage, you can't resist being drawn to her and her message.









Yes, she preached a little, and you could tell her heart was in what she had to share with the audience. You could also tell that the audience had a connection with her. Amazing to see and experience.



And during the last song, Charlie had to jump out into the crowd. And, yes, the crowd loved it.



One amazing show, and I can't wait for the next opportunity to see Eowyn live.

Mike, you did a great job of conveying the mood and intensity of the performance. While I've not been "recruited" to being a fan of this genre of music, our dear friend, Jeff, is helping me along, evidenced on his blog posting (ok, his "thievery" of your material- lol)
I see now why you needed a nap after all this coverage!
