The Eden House is a collaborative musical project, initiated by Stephen Carey and Tony Pettitt (Fields of the Nephilim), and involving a collection of guest musicians and vocalists.

Their debut album Smoke & Mirrors was released in April 2009 in the United States and Europe, and May in the United Kingdom. Vocals were provided by Monica Richards (of Faith and the Muse), Evi Vine, Amandine Ferrari and All About Eve’s Julianne Regan.

Other contributors on the debut album include violinist Bob Loveday, who had previously worked with Penguin CafÈ Orchestra and Van Morrison as well as being a member of Bob Geldofís band, alongside former Fields of The Nephilim members Peter Yates, Nod Wright and Paul Wright; and drummers Simon Rippin (previously with Nefilim and NFD) and Bob Irwin (who has also worked with Johnny Cash and Van Morrison).

The Eden House toured in 2009 and 2010, with Ferrari, Richards and Vine sharing the vocal duties. Festival performances included a headline slot at the Whitby Gothic Weekend and an appearance at Germany’s Wave-Gotik-Treffen.

The band’s second offering, The Looking Glass, was released on 1 February 2010, with vocalist Tallulah Rendall added to the collaboration. Pink Floyd’s Grammy-nominated sound engineer Andy Jackson, who mastered the first album and had previously worked with Fields of the Nephilim, also joined the line-up on guitar. The Looking Glass is a two-disc set, comprising a DVD recording of nine songs performed live and a CD of cover versions.

In 2012, the project released an EP called Timeflows. It features guest musicians such as Simon Hinkler, Bob Loveday and Simon Rippin. In 2013 the album “Half Life”, was released which saw the introduction of Laura Bennett and Jordan Reyne, both as vocalists to the live lineup and as songwriting contributors to the new album, and featured guest guitarist Phil Manzanera (Roxy Music).

Carey, Pettitt and Rippin are currently in the studio preparing the the next album, working title “Skin Deep”, previews of which can be found on the bands Youtube page.
