Title - Home [EP]
Artist - Evvan

I like to tell stories and create moods and melodies to get lost in, alternative-folk singer-songwriter Evvan, formerly known as Evan Petruzzi, says.

If you are unaware, the Long Island, NY native is known for her distinctive voice and singular sound, replete with textured melodies and layered harmonies inspired by a mix of Fleetwood Mac, Foy Vance, and Brandi Carlile.

In todays music, genres cross over all the time, she says. They blend and mesh and can turn into something really interesting you have never heard before. I have never been one to follow the norm, and I think that comes across in my music.

I hear the melody, and one day it can be a song entirely folk, while the next day, it can be a really moody soundscape. I think, as a songwriter, that is the beauty of music. If you let it, it will take you anywhere.

After a personal awakening, Evvan revamped her writing, melodies and overall brand while creating a group of songs that felt near and dear. While music has always been my most intimate friend over the years, I am finding myself delving even deeper into myself and pouring it out through these songs, she says.

Her quite divine new EP, entitled Home (out April 30th, 2021), was recorded in Los Angeles and co-produced by members of the band Milo Greene, and mixed/engineered by Grammy winner Sean OBrien.

The five songs dive deep into self-discovery and acceptance, finding universal threads and exploring them, so the listener feels less alone in their heartbreak, judgment, fear, and shame.

1. Wolf
2. Im Not Done Yet
3. Hurricane
4. Falling Over You
5. Home

Opening with the drum-led, foot-tapping, ambiently-imbued tones of Wolf, where Evvan delves into individuality, asking, What will you do when the wolf comes out in you? next up is the lead single Im Not Done Yet, which is an anthem of inclusivity, especially among the LGBTQ+ community, and reflects on Evvans own longing to come out as pansexual and nonbinary.

That is followed by the sweeping Americana storytelling of a metaphor for a tumultuous relationship found within Hurricane, the yearningly euphoric musings of unreciprocated feelings within Falling Over You, and then this simply beautiful EP ends with a reminder to stop and allow yourself to be in the moment, to take stock of the little things in life that offer safety and comfort, on the delicate title track Home.
