JazzViews says ''...a stunningly beautiful album from a lady who has waited far too long before making her debut recording.''

Lincoln City Radio's Jazz Album of the Year, 2018

Beautifully delivered in Evelyn's distinctive, light and multi-textured voice and superbly supported by some of the country's finest jazz musicians, the well-chosen collection of songs will please your ears and stir your emotions - in a good way.

From Paisley, Evelyn made her first singing appearance on stage at the age of 4 (a talent show in Arbroath.). Since then she's sung in many styles from folk to choral to opera.

Around 14 years ago, she began her training in vocal jazz and since then has performed professionally at gigs around Scotland.

Evelyn's love of music spans many genres. This album reflects her eclectic taste and includes some of her own songs - inspired by 1960's spy themes and Carmina Burana - alongside jazz standards plus her own interpretations of Sandy Denny's folk classic, ''Who knows where the time goes'' and the ever popular country hit, ''Wichita lineman''.

The wonderful Euan Stevenson on piano leads a stellar line up of Mario Caribe on bass, Tom Gordon, percussion, Frank Bolam, guitar, and Konrad Wiszniewski on tenor sax.

The album was recorded in Glasgow by Gus Stirrat at Solas Sound and mastered by Iain Hutchison at Gloworm Recording Ltd.
