EV

EV is a true entertainer. Her charming style, a combination of a witty Ani Di Franco with a melancholic Tori Amos, wins your heart instantly. She can go from the saddest songs (Valentine Day or April Rain) to the funniest tunes (Go, Stripper) with such versatility that you are laughing while the tear from the previous song is still in your cheek. She is a natural playing the guitar and her voice is both soothing and sensual. EV is a gifted singer songwriter whose taste for different genres of music can be perceived in her repertoire.
