Éowyn is a Nashville recording artist with a rock sound and a theatrical stage presence that will leave you utterly captivated with emotional intrigue. Many people find it hard to pinpoint musical comparisons as her style is as unique as her name. She has had four top 20 National Christian Rock singles and has toured extensively throughout the U.S sharing the stage with various acts from Thousand Foot Krutch, Seventh Day Slumber, Disciple, and more. Those who see her can’t get enough, those who hear her are left wanting more, but those who get to know her see a genuine person with a genuine concern for their needs.
In her previous 2008 album, “Silent Screams,” the focus was on encouraging those who have been ensnared by depression, anger, loneliness or insecurities to cry out for help from Jesus Christ and from others. Subject to depression bouts herself, Éowyn’s heart poured from this album often times sounding like she was on the verge of tears. As Éowyn explains, “It breaks my heart to see people hurting. I can’t help but cry, because I understand what they’re going through, and I truly know how they can be whole again.”
Éowyn is no stranger to feelings of hopelessness and doubt. In 2008 she was forced to announce her departure to the industry due to financial difficulties and was forced to sell everything that had to do with her musical career. Éowyn said, “I was devastated and to be perfectly honest, didn’t know what to do or think. I questioned why God would allow this in my life, I felt as if everything that God had built up over the years has been reduced to rubble and ruins. But over the next 2 years, God began to rebuild my faith and slowly my hope returned as I turned all that I had over to Him. He began to show me the beauty that still lingered amidst the ashes.”
Now in 2011, with what Éowyn describes as “only by God’s grace” she is back. Éowyn states, “I think people will see a new artist with this album. I feel being out of the industry for two years really brought me back to the true meaning of why I do what I do. This album still showcases my love of industrial flair and hard hitting guitars, but is stylistically not as dark as “Silent Screams”. I wanted the songs from “Beautiful Ashes” to pull the listener in, and leave them with a strong sense of hope and encouragement.
