We strip back for a 1 on 1 with: Evering

Introducing London based, Scots folk singer songwriters Chris Yendell and Dawn Coulshed, who together are Evering. Distract’s Mishika gets the low down on there #loves #celebcrushes and gigs penned for next year.

Dawn and Chris first met on the Edinburgh music scene in 2013, but it wasn’t until the following year that their paths crossed again, this time in London. The inheritance of an old piano sparked their first collaboration and the beginning of Evering.

Chris has a raw yet uncompromisingly welcoming sound that showcases his strong vocals and full sounding acoustic guitar riffs. He has supported the likes of Two Door Cinema Club with a previous band and has a wide range of influences ranging from Ben Howard through to Led Zeppelin. Dawn trained as a classical pianist in Edinburgh before moving to London to pursue her career as a singer songwriter and multi-instrumentalist. Growing up around the traditional music of the Highlands, Dawn was also influenced by the music of Jeff Buckley and Elbow. Her graceful yet rich piano work and truly stunning vocals really stand up behind the sound that Evering have created.

The now London based band thrive on delivering strong harmonies laid over powerful yet warm tones, which are governed by intertwined melodious piano and guitar.

This comes across strongly in their forthcoming debut EP, Running Circles due for release on 18th May 2015.

The combination of Chris and Dawn’s wide-ranging influences shines through in Evering’s material, which is immediately engaging and memorable.
