'Wave Upon Wave', the latest single by North Wales singer / songwriter Eve Goodman is an exploration of the healing power of the sea. Its lilting, rolling melody is one part ‘Bryter Layter’ Nick Drake, early 70s golden period Sandy Denny and the other Eve’s captivating and unflinching musical honesty. 'Wave Upon Wave'’s emotive heart balances the songs questioning yearning with the need for comfort …… the comfort of being carried along the waves towards an awaiting shore.

Eve explains the origin of the song:

"I wrote the vocal parts in one sitting, and never changed them. In fact, the entire vocal recording is the original demo that I created when trying out ideas late one night. I started off with the simple lilting melody of 'wave upon wave upon wave', and loved the way the structure of this sentence means it could go on infinitely. This idea of infinity sparked the next line, 'day upon day upon day'. The sea is vast, infinite, timeless.The song grew from there really, like a wave rolling towards the shore, building strength and power and beauty.”

The single was recorded and mixed by Luke Evans at Somewhere Studio and mastered by Katie Tavini.
 
About the Song:  "I wrote the vocal parts in one sitting, and never changed them. In fact, the entire vocal recording is the original demo that I created when trying out ideas late one night. I started off with the simple lilting melody of 'wave upon wave upon wave', and loved the way the structure of this sentence means it could go on infinitely. This idea of infinity sparked the next line, 'day upon day upon day'. The sea is vast, infinite, timeless. The song grew from there really, like a wave rolling towards the shore, building strength and power and beauty.I particularly love the autoharp.

The sounds of the strings as they are played sound like the gentle pull and creaks of the mast, and it feels like you're on a boat. Luke did a beautiful job of building a soundscape for the vocals to float on."

"Eve Goodman transmutes the personal into the universal and reveals a deep connection to what it is to be human in these troubled, inspiring times.”Caspar Walsh-  Poet and Author 

"Eve Goodman possesses a rare magic"-  From The Margins 


Lyrics 


Wave upon wave upon wave upon wave
Day upon day upon day upon day
Sea shore

I came here to see more
I came here feel more
I came here to be more
Sea shore

Make my way up from the rocks
Make my way with little steps
Wring my clothes out on the sand
Breathing, breathing, here’s dry land 
Sometimes I get lost at sea
Lighthouse, lighthouse, shine for me
Hold me in your trembling arms 
Hold me til my seas are calm
