Fly My Pretties IV Live Album Release
Fly My Pretties IV Live Album is out now on CD/DVD and Digital!
IV is Eva’s second Fly My Pretties live album release, which saw her return to New Zealand in October 2011 to tour with the 16-strong cast who united with an exciting new concept, re-inspired style and re-invigorated sound.
Via a unique collaboration, renowned visual/street artist Flox found inspiration in each song to create 16 original and dedicated pieces of art. A unifying thread throughout the show, the artworks were brought to life through projection, animation and visual trickery. These visuals have been uniquely mixed with the live video to create an amazing DVD.
The Fly My Pretties IV cast was the most diverse yet and featured an impressive selection of kiwi talent including original members Barnaby Weir, Mike Fabulous, Jarney Murphy and Age Pryor, as well as Fran Kora, Anna Coddington, Flip Grater, L.A. Mitchell, Aaron Tokona, Ryan Prebble, Eva Prowse, Amiria Grenell Justin “Firefly” Clarke, James Coyle, Iraia Whakamoe and guest visual artist, Flox!

Last Gig of the London ‘Summer’ in Camden
Eva is off to New Zealand on 17th October (in time for the Rugby World Cup Final!) to perform with Fly My Pretties who will play shows in throughout New Zealand and in Melbourne during October and November.
So, before she heads home for a visit, Eva is playing a ‘Farewell to Summer’ set at Proud Camden‘s Acoustic Stable on Sunday 9th October at 5pm. Apparently there’s even a BBQ (vegetarian & meateater friendly)!
Proud Camden is in the Stables Market, Chalk Farm Road, Camden Town, NW1 8AH
Peace In The City at The Goodship, London
Peace In The City presents a folky, bluesy mellow one at The Good Ship, London. Featuring:
Toby A charismatic singer, songwriter and guitarist magically weaving together roots, rock and reggae. Passionate and joyous on stage, recent appearances like America’s Summerfest prove why Toby is warmly welcomed to festival bills, support slots and headlining shows world-wide.
Eva Prowse A multi-faceted artist who effortlessly conveys a sweet mixture of pure emotion and clever songs in a most insightful way. Her debut album I Can’t Keep Secrets, has been described as ‘a debut with everything in place’ with ‘assured songwriting and vocals which sit in an area between alt.folk and gentle indie.pop-rock.’ Graham Reid, elsewhere.co.nz (Best of ELSEWHERE 2010).
Sarah May A fun and wacky playground-pop performer.
Matt Woods An acoustic singer-songwriter, trapped somewhere between the boundaries of Folk and Soul.
Doors 730pm, £5 entry
The Good Ship, 289 Kilburn High Road, London NW6 7JR
