epona advocates for change with her debut EP ‘Help I’m Fine!”



Released on the 13th of October 2023, 'Help I'm Fine!' by epona addresses the social issues of our time. Through an effective blend of alternative rock reminiscent of the '90s and 2000s, epona unveils an audacious narrative, balancing vulnerability and strength, hope and fear in our lives.


Epona Guillaume comes from Belgium and brings authenticity to her music through her background in acting.

At the heart of 'Help I'm Fine!' lie 4 powerful anthems for social justice that tackle women’s and minorities' rights, street harassment and building resilience in the face of traumatic events.

Her dedication to social change shines through in every note of the EP, as she lends voice to people who have ever felt like they don’t fit in, encouraging them to speak up.


With the lead single 'Voice', the young artist advocates for equal rights, mentioning the double standards and the lack of consideration that women face every day, whether at work or in their personal lives. Her commanding vocals and guitar-driven sound build intensity as the track unfolds.


‘Naked Man (In The Forest)’ is the second single taken from the EP. It tells the story of a child growing up and finally overcoming trauma. Through this track, epona explores the resilience of the human spirit, reminding us of the strength that can emerge from vulnerability. The video complements the song very well.


In ‘Louise’, the haunting atmosphere sets the stage for an evocative narrative that explores the depths of life-altering decisions, drawing parallels to the iconic characters of Thelma and Louise.


Finally, the latest single ‘Don’t Care’ uses absurdity to address street harassment. The storyteller showcases all her talent as she embodies a man who doesn’t care about the feelings and thoughts of his victims, all set against the backdrop of an alternative rock sound borrowed from Alanis Morissette, Sixpence None The Richer or The Cardigans.


With ‘Help I’m Fine!’, epona uses her music as a platform to spark meaningful conversations that can make a difference, urging listeners to reflect on the state of the world and inspiring them to take action for positive change.
