"Catch Eden Shireen on the small stage while you still can.."


It's not every day you meet a 19 year old like Eden Shireen.  Strinkingly beautiful with a voice like an angel and a passion that literally knocks you down, Eden has been singing since she could talk, started writing lyrics in high school and recorded her first album, Eden Shireen, when she was a senior in high school.  Her career really started taking off when she started making videos and posting them on YouTube. Eden has added guitar to her repertoire, is working on her second album, and recently returned from touring in the Philippines.  Music is important to Eden because "music impacts people" and she wants to impact people in a positive way.  Music is a safe place for her and giving this safe place to others is "magical".  

Accompanied by Ben Torres on guitar and Ellis Martinez on cajon, Eden's magic was abundant as she serenaded us through a mix of original and cover songs including "Invisible To You", "Tangled Heart Strings" and "Fraction of Time" a song about her first heartbreak, "I'm just a fraction of time for you".  Covers included a spectacular "Stay With Me" by Sam Smith and "Tenerife Sea" by Ed Sheeran.  Eden is a busy young lady. She plays in two bands, writes, records, works and goes to college part time but feels she was "made to do this".  After last night's performance, I couldn't agree more.  Catch Eden on the small stage while you still can at the Market on 7th in Ybor City on June 25th or listen to her here.
