Eve & The Exiles
“It’s hard to stand out in a town full of hot guitar players, but Eve Monsees does. With an ear for infectious riffage, a knack for fierce, concise solos and a raw sonic sensibility steeped in a lifelong love for classic blues and garage-rock records, the Austin native makes reliably raw, unfailingly catchy rock ’n’ roll that doesn’t sound like anybody else’s.” – Scott Schinder, Lone Star Music
Eve Monsees has been a fixture on the Austin music scene since the age of 15. Along with fellow guitarist and neighbor Gary Clark Jr, the two cut their teeth playing Blues together throughout their teenage years. Eve appeared along with Gary at a 2016 Austin City Limits Hall of Fame taping sharing the stage with legends such as Willie Nelson, Bonnie Raitt, Taj Mahal and Billy Gibbons. Eve has consistently been nominated as a finalist for Best Guitar Player in the annual Austin Music Awards. She also plays regularly with The Bluebonnets and LeRoi Brothers.
An original member of both the Fabulous Thunderbirds and LeRoi Brothers, Mike Buck has toured extensively throughout his illustrious career. In addition to co-founding Eve & The Exiles, both Mike and Eve are owners of the iconic Antone’s Record Shop in Austin, TX.
