Imagine, if you will:
You find yourself ambling down Locust Street in West Philadelphia on a slow and easy Sunday evening. Carried by the summer breeze, the siren call of the Singular Band wafts through the wide open second-story window of Fiume, beckoning you. As you approach, a jaunty bassline competes with a box fan, rattling the sills in time. Comfortably nestled within Fiume’s deep red walls, revelers shift, sway, and sip as Evan’s voice urgently slices through the sweat-soaked air. Taking all of this in, a thought hits you like the jutting smack of a resonator guitar: “Something really special is happening here.” You resolve to commit this scene to memory.
This moment is precisely what Evan’s debut album* aims to capture. The album will be a carefully curated time capsule of Evan’s live shows— an experience that is at once tender, impassioned, and irreverent. By backing this Kickstarter at any level, you’re also funding the creation of valuable video content, which the band will use to engage new and far-flung audiences. Help us spread the love!
Thanks so much for your support—it means the world to us.
