“We’ve both been members of the MU for a number of years and the support provided has been invaluable. Caroline has used the Contract Advisory Service to review publishing deals offered to her on several occasions.

“We both needed public liability and instrument insurance as gigging musicians so that has been really useful and gives us peace of mind knowing we are protected.

“It makes life easier when all the services are included in one membership. The staff in our MU office in Glasgow add the personal touch and are friendly, approachable and supportive with any questions or assistance we require.”

About the Eves

The Eves first single Tides was released in October 2018, and garnered favourable media reviews – now 2019 is shaping up to be a busy year.

The duo performed at this year's Country to Country music festival at the SSE Hydro and are opening for The Shires on 22 September at the Old Fruitmarket in Glasgow.

Their forthcoming single City of Stars is due for release on 7 June, carrying a strong message of love and harmony, it is the ultimate feel good summer single.
