Classic Jazz Musician
A jazz singer, guitarist and songwriter Eve Silber performs a repertoire of standards and substandards regularly in and around New York City, including New York City's oldest jazz club.
A long time resident of the West Village Eve received much of her training in the Village, under the tutelage of guitar great Dave Van Ronk, as well as in the accompaniment of the great dames of Grove Street: Marie Blake, and Mable Godwin. She carries out her love affair with the American Songbook in a swinging fashion, and with the traditional joy of the traditional jazz era.
"She's not only very good... she's interesting! I can sit and listen happily for as long as she wants to sing and play." -- Dave Van Ronk
"The whole goes down as smooth as bourbon and film noir. Eve's voice, sultry and saucy, transports you to a sophisticated pleasure ground where a continental elan oozes invitation." -- SingOut Magazine
"A sultry voiced songsmith. Her Wes Montgomery stylings are smooth and adept." -- Greenwich Village Gazette
"She has such an insightful way with lyrics that she makes old stories new again." -- Dirty Linen Magazine
