MorganEve Swain is a multi-instrumental string player, vocalist and songwriter. Widely known as half of the music duo, Brown Bird, MorganEve enjoyed international success and personal happiness while writing and touring for six years alongside her husband, David Lamb. Shortly after Lamb’s passing in 2014 at the age of 36, Swain launched The Huntress and Holder of Hands as a creative vessel for not only her grief, but her growth. Songs written and demoed originally by Swain alone, performed live employ six musicians with duties on viola, cello, upright bass, electric bass, drums and vocal harmonies. Deeply rooted in her experience with Lamb, The Huntress and Holder of Hands pulls from the same creative and emotional place as Brown Bird. Influenced by Eastern European and Middle Eastern musics, drone metal, rock and Americana, Swain utilizes her primary instrument of 5-string viola to build intense, bass-driven pieces, which deal both musically and lyrically with love and grief; power and strength. The Huntress and Holder of Hands self-released a three-song demo EP in November 2015 and plans to record a full-length album in the autumn of 2016.
