Artist Biography:
Witches of Eden is an Australian act consisting of:

Michelle Neve - Lead Vocals

McCarthy - songwriter, guitars, keyboard, ukelele, vocals, manager

McCarthy’s musical influences are The Beatles, Buddy Holly, Cat Stevens, Dylan, Brian Wilson and Fleetwood Mac. McCarthy also loves Australian music and believes James Reyne and Richard Clapton are two of the very best songwriters Australia has produced.

McCarthy believes he is extremely lucky that Neve decided to join with him to form the Witches of Eden. “Michelle has a wonderful voice and I enjoy being able to write songs for her to perform. She nails the tunes virtually from the first run through and she is always excited about having a go at the new songs”. Michelle also happily puts up with me constantly changing the songs as we get closer to recording.

Michelle Neve is also a songwriter and has been singing and making music for as long as she can remember. Her musical influences are diverse, ranging from Jewel and Sara Slean through to The Doors, The Beatles and Led Zeppelin.

Although mainly focussing on writing and singing folk songs, Michelle actually appreciates and derives inspiration from all music genres including country, rock and pop right through to dance, drum and bass.

She has worked with many musicians and has a long history of music production and collaboration with her brother and fellow musician Matthew Birkett.

Neve gets a lot of joy from singing live and recording in the studio. She is excited about joining with fellow musician and songwriter McCarthy to form the Witches of Eden.

“I am really looking forward to being able to showcase my voice and indulge my love of music through McCarthy’s breathtaking songwriting”, said Michelle. "I am thrilled to be singing such gorgeous songs”.

Witches of Eden have been focused on recording McCarthy’s songs and they really enjoy playing live with just guitars and vocals.
