Growing up in the UK in a big Caribbean family, Evadney’s sound has been shaped by a variety of different sounds, from hearing old school soca and calypso tunes at family parties, to his love of bold artists like Bjork, Kate Bush and Grace Jones, and later studying the likes of John Cale, Stockhausen and Musique concrète during his MA in Music Composition at Goldsmiths University. “My mum is from Jamaica and my dad is from Barbados so island life is in me. Being at the sea triggers a lot.” Now splitting his time in Brighton between making music, working part time at a charity organisation and DJ’ing at the weekends, his debut EP looks set to solidify Evadney as a bold new voice on the UK music scene, bringing with him a new world of melancholy, narrative-driven pop.
‘Sold Love, Sold’ EP released 8th March 2019 on Black Acre.
