Live From Center Stage

Taking Back Eden

Taking Back Eden is one of acoustic music’s most arresting bands to emerge from the Western, Massachusetts music scene. This indie-folk-rock band, formed in the five-college town of Amherst, Massachusetts, features five women: Carolyn Walker on vocals and violin, Sylvie Abate on acoustic and nylon guitars, Heather Sommerlad on violin and cello, Jen Spingla on bass, and Christine “Tina” Abate on full kit and percussion. These five musicians are seasoned and powerful.
Taking Back Eden’s talent is deep and diverse. The band offers a blend of textures and instruments to create a unique foundation for soulful vocals, harmonies, and sincere lyrics. Each women in Eden is a songwriter in her own right and together they spin passionate, literate, sensitive music that speaks about contemporary social issues and fragile discoveries about love and relationships.
Taking Back Eden has captured the heart of Western Massachusetts where the band is currently booked eight months in advance and has developed a large social media following. In addition to colleges, festivals, concert halls, clubs, and coffee houses, Taking Back Eden has appeared on Cape Cod television, SKOPE Radio, and is a favorite on Women of Substance Radio.
