London based, Scots folk duo Evering are composed of singer/songwriters, Dawn Coulshed and Chris Yendell.
Having first made each other’s acquaintance in Edinburgh in 2013, it wasn’t until last year, when they met up in London, that they decided to collaborate. Evering combines strong harmonies with silvery-toned piano and guitar.
Chris’s vocal style is raw, yet warm, and accompanies this with full sounding acoustic guitar. He draws influences from such artists as wide-ranging as Ben Howard and Led Zeppelin, and with a previous band supported Two Door Cinema Club.
Classically trained pianist Dawn moved from Edinburgh to London to pursue her career as a singer/songwriter and multi-instrumentalist. Drawing her influences from the traditional music of the Scottish Highlands, and also more contemporary artists such as Jeff Buckley and Elbow, Dawn’s vocals and mellifluous piano provide a strong framework for Evering’s sound.
Evering’s debut EP, “Running Circles”, is set for release on 18 May, with the duo playing in Edinburgh (April 8, Sneaky Pete’s), Dumfries on April 9 (Nonalous Tea Room), 21 April at Goodship, in Kilburn, London, and a final London date at the Cavendish Arms in Stockwell, on May 23.
