With Concerts On Hold, Fresno Musician Eva Scow Is Writing Her Own Music During Shelter In Place

Eva Scow's YouTube Channel
Fresno mandolin-player Eva Scow showcased her other musical talents and writing skills in 'Mambo,' a song she wrote and recorded by herself while shleltering in place.

As we go into the weekend, we wanted to leave you with a new tune, and maybe some inspiration. Fresno musician Eva Scow has been sheltering in place like the rest of us, but says she’s using the time to write more of her own music. She’s been experimenting with recording and production, and she just released a song called “Mambo” on YouTube, where she plays all of the instruments. 

The song is also the one she used as an entry for NPR’s Tiny Desk Contest. Listen to the story above to hear the song. Scow talks about the process of writing her own music, and staying hopeful during the pandemic.
