About Me

This is where you can write a sub heading

Classically trained Eve Nelson, a partner with Nelson-O'Reilly, has become a leading composer, arranger and producer by bringing unlimited flexibility to the process of making music. The Miami native produced and arranged Chaka Khan's well-received 2005 standards album "Classikhan" with the London Symphony Orchestra (she also conducted the live recording); and has collaborated with such broad-ranging talent as Donna Summer; Willa Ford, the late Eva Cassidy; Ben Jelen; Turkey's preeminent female singer/songwriter Sezen Aksu; Angela Bofill; Healther Nova, Buster Poindexter; Raven Symone and New Zealand classical crossover act Hayley Westernra.

In addition, Nelson-O'Reilly developed and launched child movie star Billy Crawford's singing career, writing his debut self-titled album and acquiring a record deal from Richard Branson's V2 Records, which propelled him to stardom across Europe.

Nelson's work with dance sensation Donna Giles garnered a No. 1 hit in the U.K. She also wrote and produced tracks on Universal's "Stuart Little" soundtrack as well as songs for the films "Confessions of a Teenage Drama Queen" and "Serendipity". She has created nationally televised TV themes and commercials for Lifetime, TNT, Warner Bros., the Boston Red Sox, the NBA and Major League Baseball. Classically trained, Nelson was awarded the very first ASCAP Scholarship from Berklee College of Music in Boston.

She graduated in just two years at the age of 21, landing a publishing deal with Zomba Music. In 1994, she launched Manhattan-based multi-platform music production company Nelson-O'Reilly Productions with partner Bernadette O'Reilly, whose own writing and producing credits include musicians and singers, TV programming and comics, as well as heading independent label Breaking Records.

Nelson approaches her career with sensitivity and confidence. This has enabled her to expand beyond the traditional role of musical artist, providing a trusting home in the company's state-of-the-art recording facility in New York's Flatiron district. Nelson is an innovator in an industry that rarely sees a female producer/composer who can capture the essence and emotion of pop, R&B, hip hop, dance and classical music, as well as the heart-wrenching ballad.
