Find Evelyn's music HERE
Evelyn is a passionate musician and environmentalist, and has been with Leesta Vall since June 2018. She brings in authentic artists who share her love for real music. Through their sessions, Evelyn hopes the artists will experience the space and time needed to be truly present while making music. She says “...each record is like a thank you note written in pen… because they play a song selected by a fan, directly to that fan, without going back to erase.”
“Leesta Vall is kind of like stepping into a time machine. I feel like we should all wear monocles and be smoking cigars in there and talk in old English style lingo. All the gear is analog and the artists are making a one-of-a-kind recording directly to their fans. Nothing is recorded digitally, so there are no overdubs or edits... You can't come into the session and sing over a track. You need to have real musicians. It takes concentration on both the musician's end and the engineer's end the entire duration of each song recorded. It takes effort. It takes time. That time taken to make each record is literally grooved into each vinyl recording.”
Evelyn has a BA from Berklee College of Music, and has been a musician for as long as she can remember. She comes from a musical family, and is a flute player, pianist, guitarist, and vocalist. Although she works mostly as a singer/songwriter, she continues to enjoy playing classical flute in her free time. Evelyn is planning to release a new record alongside Phil Joly this fall.
When she’s not at work, Evelyn loves doing yoga, reading, being in nature, caring for her house plants, and listening to Radiohead. As an environmentalist, she is an active supporter of any and all environmental organizations, including The Sierra Club and The Nature Conservancy.
