Evie’s EP Since the Fire, released in 2022, is the first of many projects that the artist has under her sleeve. Native to the city, Evie first began making and releasing music during the pandemic; since that time, she has quickly gone from playing in her bedroom to playing gigs around Dublin.
As Top Floor Music’s first Irish performer, Evie reminds us of that classic folk style, reminiscent of Beth Orton and Lisa Hannigan. Although she fits broadly into the singer-songwriter genre, Evie’s mesmerizing voice separates her from the rest. And while listening to “Dublin Bay,” we get a window into who Evie is and where she draws her inspiration from as an artist. Her songs contain gentle references to locations around the city, grounding her as one of the many young artists in the blossoming Irish music scene.
With only a handful of members in the audience, Top Floor Music enjoyed Evie’s intimate show which took place in an apartment on Trinity’s campus. Chatting to her after the performance, we got a better sense of who she is and what might be coming next!

Cam Begley’s EP “Bread and Water”, released at the end of September 2022, has joined a vast and diverse catalogue of recent releases from Trinity’s thriving music scene. From Lifts to Last Apollo, the college’s musical culture has emerged all guns (and guitars) blazing in the wake of the pandemic. Cam, our first guest here at Top Floor Music, is one of many Trinity students producing new and exciting bodies of work that we are so fortunate to be able to highlight.
Despite his cross-Atlantic move, Cam Begley, hailing from Hartford, Connecticut, brings with him a healthy appreciation for the classic American singer-songwriter style. One listen to “Bread and Water” evokes trademarks of indie rock from across the pond, reminiscent of Kurt Vile or The Shins. However, Cam avoids any strict categorisation through his blending of rock genres. What remains clear and unique is, above all, his distinct and powerful voice, and his artistic capability.
Top Floor Music was delighted to welcome Cam Begley into the TFM studio to showcase his work. Later, our station manager Vivien Sweet sat down with the artist to ask him a few questions.
