93140-EVIEN_5Evien is an independent dance-pop artist based in Los Angeles. The native SoCal girl is a born entertainer, having started voice and piano lessons at age 6. Her first paid engagement was as a wedding singer, at age 9! Throughout school, she gravitated to the stage, in plays, musical theater, as a choir member, and a soloist in an ensemble. A naturally gifted vocalist and writer, her dedication to a life in performing arts has never faltered. “I love the spotlight! I used to pretend to be a newscaster when I was a kid. My parents were very supportive even early on,” remembers Evien.

While honing vocal chops in the context of worship music, she had a rather different experience when exploring her theatrical side. Evien was a pageant contestant in Southern California for just long enough to get stage time. “I love the fashion and the runway. I had a pageant coach. It’s so much work, but there’s also too much drama. If I’m going to bleed for something, it’s going to be music.” But the importance of image and presence became clear, and combined with the inspiration from artists like Calvin Harris, Lady Gaga, and Rita Ora, Evien crafted an ethereal persona that shifts from light to dark (like her lyrics).

Vibrantly colorful and sometimes heartbreakingly dark, Evien uses her love life as the foundation for her songs. “I’m a sensitive storyteller, and use poetry as the way to do that.” said Evien. “My dates inspire me so much!”

Bold, passionate, and authentic, Evien represents the new wave of pop artists. The follow up to her 2013 release is the new EP, “Broken Together” (available for licensing and remixing opportunities).
