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.
