19 year old Clonmel based singer-songwriter Eve Whelan returns with her highly anticipated new single “Wasted Youth” distributed through Dublin based Stream On Distro. This follows on from her well received debut EP release last summer.
“Wasted Youth” was written when I first moved away to begin college last year” explains Eve. “It’s about feeling completely alone and disconnected even while surrounded by crowds of people. I hated where I was living, it was too far outside of the city and covid restrictions meant my class groups were divided up and some classes were online. There were no social events taking place either, I just felt that I was spending my youth stressed and that I was running out of time. I was 17 when covid first struck and that’s the age when I should have been going out with my friends having fun, but none of that happened thanks to covid. I had missed out on so much already and then for my college experience to be so badly affected too, it was nothing like what I had imagined for years beforehand. For a while last year, I felt really misplaced in the world”.
“Wasted Youth” was written, performed and recorded by Eve between home in Clonmel, and in Cork where she is a music student at University College Cork. The track was then mixed at home with the help of friends and Andrew Whelan was later enlisted to master the track.
Eve Whelan has loved music from a really young age. When she was 9 years old, she joined her local marching and concert band to play the trumpet. At the age of 11 she began taking vocal lessons and has completed all of her grade exams and senior certificate in Music Theatre and Popular Singing through the Royal Irish Academy of Music. She will begin her second year as a music student at University College Cork later this month.
