MorganEve Swain is The Huntress and Holder of Hands. A multi-instrumental string player, vocalist and songwriter, Swain is widely known as half of the music duo, Brown Bird, with her husband, Dave Lamb. The duo, who enjoyed national and international success, spent over six years performing and touring until Lamb’s untimely passing, at age 36, from leukemia in April 2014. That summer, Swain launched The Huntress and Holder of Hands, which began as a creative vessel for exploring both her grief and her growth. Her original songs were home-recorded and solo-performed using multi-layer tracks of voice and strings. Live, The Huntress and Holder of Hands employs five musicians with duties on cello, string bass, electric bass, voice and drums, with Swain primarily on five-string viola and guitar. Deeply rooted in Swain and Lamb’s shared experience, The Huntress and Holder of Hands pulls creative energy from the same emotional place as Brown Bird, building unique harmony, string and bass-driven pieces influenced by Eastern European, Americana and Middle Eastern music, among other genres, and offering an intense musical and lyrical experience that explores love, loss, power and strength. The debut album, Avalon, was released in September 2017. Post-Metal, Blues, Americana
