Evening Times’ Scotswoman of the Year Awards- Thursday 14th March
I am humbled to have been asked to perform with my band The Eves at this years Evening Times’ Scotswoman of the Year Awards on Thursday 14th March at Glasgows Grand Central Hotel.
The Evening Times’ Scotswoman of the Year is a unique celebration of the accomplishments of woman across Scotland. The awards provide the perfect opportunity to recognise the talents and achievements of some of our nation’s most remarkable women.
From top flight businesswomen to compassionate carers, from scientists working on lifesaving breakthroughs to teachers nurturing tomorrow’s leaders, from record breaking sportswomen to your local lollipop lady, the aim of the event is to acknowledge our debt for their, often, selfless and unacknowledged hard work.

‘Christmas in Summertime’ by The Eves Official Video and Single Release
I’m also so pleased to finally be able to share the music video with you all. There is a wee story to this and one we would really like to share with you as it's very personal to us.
Christmas is not always a fun time for everyone. Many people are grieving for loved ones who are no longer with them, or for loved ones who are too ill and sadly not going to be able to hold on until Christmas. The narrative of the song is to recognise the sadness that people feel who are experiencing this situation, and to remember loved ones.
Many people try to celebrate Christmas at different times in the year for situations like these - whether it be to have one last Christmas together, or just to celebrate at another time of year when it’s less painful. This explains the song’s title ‘Christmas In Summertime’.
The dancer in the video represents the human soul making it's final journey to peace.

Official video for ‘Tides’ by ‘The Eves’.
In 2016 Mareesa began co-writing with UK No 1 selling vinyl artist Caroline Gilmour to form duo ‘The Eves’. Their debut song ‘Tides’ was produced by Mark Morrow (Folda, Vistas, Mt. Doubt). Radio presenter and DJ Jim Gellatly described ‘Tides‘ as ‘a glistening pop gem with delightful harmonies’, making the song his ‘track of the day’ as well as adding it to his November Spotify playlist. The duo received airplay on BBC Radio Scotland’s Iain Anderson Show, BBC Alba, RockSport Radio, CamGlen Radio and have had press features in The Scottish Sun, The Sunday Post, The Herald and other local press and online publications.
‘Don’t Keep Time’ is my most recent voice-over work. It is a short animation by James Ratnarajah in which I was asked to narrate the story in a romantic/storyteller’s style. Please see www.jamesratnarajah.com for more information on his other work.
