ARTISTS TO WATCH: Evi Vine


We usually don't talk about unsigned bands here, but sometimes an artist catches our eyes, ears and hearts and we just can't help ourselves!


So, remember where you read about her first!


“Hypnotic… hauntingly beautiful.” Time Out

Nominated for the ‘Independent Music Awards’ by ‘Secret Garden Party Festival’ and prestigious Cambridge venue the ‘Living Room’

EVI VINE is a singer/songwriter emerging from the UK’s underground music scene. Inspired by such diverse artists as Leonard Cohen, the Cocteau Twins, Arvo Part and Nine Inch Nails, Raw and emotive, EVI’s powerful, but minimalist narrative style is very much her own.

Her voice is described as haunting and other-worldly; her lyrics telling of isolation, sex, death and alienation. Few performers can consistently deliver such an impassioned, emotional and hypnotic show as EVI VINE. Her potent and mesmerising live performances draw the audience into compelled silence.

Writing and composing all original material, EVI VINE provides vocals and lead guitar. EVI has been working for two years with STEVEN HILL on drums, the live experience also brings in a selection of guest musicians on Bass Guitar, Mandolin, Violin and Cello.

EVI VINE is gaining considerable attention following last years Summer festival appearances at Glastonbury, Latitude, Secret Garden Party, Standon Calling, Irish Green Gathering, Bohemia Festival, and Aeon Festival.

RADIO - BBC6 Introducing - Tom Robinson’s acclaimed radio show ‘fresh on the net’ has recently championed the track ‘Follow’. BBC/Worthy FM interview live from the Glastonbury festival 2008/09. BBC Bristol - Sophie Oliver & BBC Cambridge - Jez Sallis along with regional radio stations around the UK are also supporting tracks from Evi’s 2008 self recorded Human Remains EP. This release was only available through EVI’s MySpace page and has since sold out.





Past collaborations include composer Graeme Revell (The Crow, Sin City), Sally Herbert (PJ Harvey, Siouxsie & the Banshees) Noel Hogan (Cranberries), songwriter Kevin Hunter (Sheryl Crow). Producers, such as Dave Allen,and Stephen Street. (The Smith, Blur) Evi’s single Drown in Me, remixed by Silencer, was hailed by Judge Jules as one of his top ten singles in 2006.

Record an album with THE EDEN HOUSE, (Jungle records) featuring Tony Pettitt (Fields of the Nephilim) and Steven Carey (Adoration) and Julianne Regan (All about Eve).
