Regarded as a veteran and “one of the most striking figures of the American Gothic scene,” Eva O has had a significant influence on the emerging deathrock movement, which garnered her the “Queen of Darkness” title from the press and audience.
I first heard Eva in her band Shadow Project with her then-husband Rozz Williams (Christian Death). Her haunting vocal styles and heavy-handed guitar playing excited me -- it was the first time I had heard a woman express herself in such a dark and commanding way.

[S]HEROES: Side B is the second installment of
Jordan Christianson's celebration of Women’s History Month
and the women who have musically inspired him, through wearable art. Each handbag is individually designed and handmade to invoke the spirit of these trailblazing women who have changed history and influenced Christianson.
[S]Heroes: Side B also features the work of Mariel Andrade, whose evocative paintings and love for music has proven to be a perfect pairing with Christianson's handbags.
