WELCOME TO THE HOME PAGE OF AMERICANA SINGER-SONGWRITER EILEEN BERNSTEIN!

Eileen has taken audiences up and down the peaks and valleys of life at festivals, songwriter showcases, and coffeehouses throughout the DMV (District of Columbia, Maryland, and Virginia) and is excited to be in Nashville. “Endless Night,” off her No Place But Up EP, has been played on digitalrevolutionradio. Eileen's passionate writing and vocal jump style developed among lifelong influences as varied as Evanescence, Journey, Miranda Lambert, Katy Perry, Foreigner, Sara Bareilles, Keith Urban, Sheryl Crow, Green Day, Kacey Musgraves, and Gretchen Wilson. Fans compare her to Sheryl Crow, the Indigo Girls, Jewel, Sara McLachlan, and Stevie Nicks. A music career highlight was playing the community tent just before Three Dog Night took the stage in Havre de Grace, MD.

Music for the Peaks and Valleys of Life

This week on my journey through the peaks and valleys of life: 

 

During this past year, I have been blessed to get to know wonderful people at all levels of the songwriting journey. My collaborations are producing new songs I hope to share in the coming months.  I celebrated my June birthday in the best way – performing at a songwriter showcase in Hendersonville, open mic in Old Hickory, and the Neddy Jacobs Festival in Lebanon. Yes – it was all in the same weekend (exhausted but contented sigh). 

I stretched out of my comfort zone and wrote a new melody to existing lyrics. My congregation had a Songwriter Shabbat, and it was exciting to hear the Cantor sing my new melody for Shalom Rav, a traditional liturgical prayer for peace. She liked it so much she wants to keep singing it at services. Yay! Here’s me singing it:

 

Musically Yours,

Eileen
