Evan

"New Folk"

Self-released

I find that a lot of singer-songwriters commit to either plugged-in electric or unplugged acoustic, and rarely cross over, if ever. Rochester, by way of Wisconsin, musician Evan aptly does both at the same time. On his latest — and third — CD, "New Folk," Evan comes out swinging with a gentle acoustic root that lilts below the soulful pleading of his rich voice. Bass and drums kick in and the acousticity remains. So does the undercurrent of wonderment and ache. If you like cats like Jack Johnson, you're gonna love Evan. And if this is the new folk, I might start listening even more.
