Marina Evans

Combining strong, sultry vocals with unusual melodies and insightful lyrics, singer/songwriter Marina Evans’ sound is all her own. Evans’ drive, passion, and versatility are just as evident in her songs--which deftly navigate a range of genres, from folk to pop to rock and roll--as they are in her track record: since 2011 she has independently released 3 original EPs and a full length album, toured across the U.S., to London, and to Italy (where she recorded 3 of her releases), been featured on local, regional, and internet radio, and she has earned two consecutive nominations for Female Performer of the Year at the New England Music Awards (2014 and 2015).

Both her live performance and her latest album Unbound have turned heads recently. A powerful presence on stage, Evans utilizes “a wide dynamic range with her voice, going from whispery to wailing to good effect,” while keeping her voice and guitar “superbly in sync” (The Patriot Ledger). Her studio work is equally inspired: Unbound “creates as much dramatic feeling as two gunslingers approaching each other with hands over holsters... [and is] a reflection of an artist who knows where she wants to go” (Bill Copeland Music News). [+]
