Formally known as Evan Petruzzi, singer/songwriter, Evvan, is a Long Island native known for her distinctive voice and unique sound. Evvan draws inspiration from many styles, but cites some of her biggest influences as Fleetwood Mac, Foy Vance, and Brandi Carlile. She has an alternative-folk musical style that appeals to a wide audience with its textured melodies, layered harmonies, and meaningful lyrics that are both personal and unapologetic.
“In today’s music, genres cross over all the time. They blend and mesh and can turn into something really interesting you’ve never heard before,” Evvan says. “I’ve never been one to follow the norm and I think that comes across in my music. I hear the melody and one day it can be a song entirely folk while the next day it can be a really moody soundscape. I think, as a songwriter, that’s the beauty of music. If you let it, it will take you anywhere.”
Evvan and her band capture audiences with their powerful live show, full of energy and evocative grooves. She sings with an unreserved passion that speaks an emotional truth. Evvan isn’t afraid to break boundaries and that’s only emphasized through her compelling performances.
Evvan is gearing up to debut her new sound with an upcoming EP entitled Home. This 5-track EP, recorded in Los Angeles, was co-produced by the members of the local LA band Milo Greene and mixed/engineered by Sean O’Brien. It will be released later this year.
