Gold Coast | Yugambeh based artist Eimhin is an Irish singer songwriter doing his darnedest to put out vulnerable, wholehearted music that explores themes of love, loss, and self-discovery.
He spent his teenage years exploring musical theatre before ultimately playing in original bands and answering the call of punk rock, hardcore, glam and emo. More recently, Eimhin’s songwriting has matured to embrace a deep sense of emotional honesty and fearlessness - from ethereal folk, to shout-it-at-the-top-of-your-lungs indie anthems.
Through his unique fashion sensibilities and commitment to dismantling patriarchal norms, Eimhin takes up the mantle of artists such as Virgin Prunes, David Bowie and more recently Harry Styles, challenging audiences to let go of restrictive cultural ideas about gender expression and encouraging them to embrace their divine femininity.
“I am really inspired by the work of contemporary queer activists such as Alok Vaid-Menon who challenge us to question cultural ideas around gender and how they limit our capacity to thrive and truly be free. I believe that if you want to normalise something, you have to do it like it’s normal.”
He is working on a full album called "Modern Mending (Of The Heart)" - in it he describes the experience of coming out of the darkness and being transformed for the better; he clings tightly to a lesson hard-won, and those sentiments echo across the entire record:
“That’s got to be it, you learn and you live, and the lesson is love, the lesson is love.”
