Ned Evett

In 1990, after playing in endless cover bands, seasoned guitarist Ned Evett smashed his Strat onstage. Like a phoenix rising from the ashes, Ned recovered the unbroken neck, removed the frets, and developed a groundbreaking style that is all his own.

That’s just the beginning of the wonder that is Ned Evett. Four of his last five solo records feature Ned’s amazing voice, which seems to defy comparison. The songs he sings are his own, drawn from his experiences and wise observations about the world around him. They run the gamut from instrumental beauties to hard-rocking blues, and everything in between.

Ned’s sixth solo album, “Treehouse” is a 14 song diary of love, loss, redemption, and the future told in Ned’s mesmerizing voice, accompanied by Ned’s trademark fretless mirrored glass and steel resonator, the “Globro” and his glass-necked electrics. The album, produced by legendary musician Adrian Belew, was released January 3, 2012. [+]
