Evie Barrand is an up-and-coming singer-songwriter from Market Weighton in the East Riding of Yorkshire. She began singing and playing guitar at the tender age of eight, and started to write her own music when she was just fourteen, finding it the best way to express her feelings. Having started making demos of her songs in 2016, she has now released her debut “Summer’s Warm”, which was released on 20th January 2018. Evie's music is heavily influenced by the 90’s/noughties UK indie scene, particularly bands like Travis and Keane, and she has been praised on Twitter by both Fran Healy (Travis) and Tom Chaplin (Keane) for her covers of their songs. Since joining Goole’s ‘School of Rock’ youth music programme in 2015 Evie has been honing her performances by playing open mic nights in and around Yorkshire. She warmed up the crowd ahead of Will Young’s performance at Junction Goole in 2015, and supported Chantel McGregor at the same venue in 2016. During the summer of 2018 Evie played many festivals including Humber Street Sesh, Beverley Fringe Festival and Carfest North for Children in Need, which she has been asked to play again next year. Evie is looking forward to 2019 as a year to push her music, with new recordings and releases, radio sessions, more gigs and festival appearances.
