EVV is a Minneapolis-based musician that does not claim a genre. Drawing influences from blues, jazz, and rock, Evelyn Speers is one that is years in the making - and they are only getting started - being noted as an “artist to watch for this year” by Ear Coffee’s Wes Muilenburg. EVV released their debut three-song EP, Homebody, on December 18, 2020, including a remastered version of their second single “Dead to Me”, which was originally released in March of 2020. With each song, EVV sings about heartbreak and their experiences as a black femme in today's society. EVV hopes to inspire young femmes to pursue the music that inspires them and to let their voices be heard.
