Eileenís soulful mix of jazz, folk, and country is all about finding your center and holding it amid the blues and bliss of everyday life, and giving somebody else a leg up when you can. Her compositions have won numerous awards, and she and her trio have performed at the New Jersey Folk Festival, the Upper Merion Concerts Under the Stars, and at Musikfest in Bethlehem,PA.
Growing up listening to the likes of Joni Mitchell, Bob Dylan, James Taylor, Bonnie Raitt, and a host of other blues and folk artists, Eileen learned that music was not only the food of the soul, but that it could be a catalyst for change as well. Music became a lifelong passion and when she found her own voice after the birth of he third child, her aim was to create songs that would touch hearts as well as stimulate minds.
Steve Kurtz has long been Eileenís collaborator in music. His amazingly inventive and versatile guitar style creates a frame for each song. Steve produced Eileenís first album, "Rough Cuts" in 1993.
Jack Lougheadís bass has also become an integral part of Eileenís sound since he joined her in 2000. Like Steve, Jack is a consummate musician with years of experience in various blues and rock bands.
Tom Montgomery, whose wonderful accordion playing adds a perfect touch is a master keyboard player as well, who collaborates with Steve and Jack in their blues band "Woodshed Blues".
