MIKE EVIN / ANDY CREEGGAN - HOUSE CONCERT (Moncton, NB)
"A rarity a pop composer who isn't afraid to use his wit or to wear his heart for all to hear."
"Mike Evin taps into what motivates people, and champions the search for happiness."
- Jim Creeggan (Barenaked Ladies)
The joyous spirit of Canadian piano-pop songwriter Mike Evin pulses through his music, uplifting and soulful. Drawing from influences as varied as Ben Folds and Michael Jackson, Evin weaves hook-laden melodies, playful vocals, and driving grooves to create danceable pop gems and hopeful musings on life and love.
Mike is touring his new album, Life as a Lover, which will be released on August 28. The concert will feature Mike on piano/guitar/vocals and Ian MacKay (Basia Bulat) on drums/percussion/vocals.
Andy Creeggan had it all but he wanted more. As a founding member of Barenaked Ladies, Creeggan saw the group rise from obscurity to top of the charts, but, it wasn't for him. "I wanted space for my music, my personality," he says. "I was always very interested in instrumental music and I wanted to take advantage of having been accepted at the Faculty of Music at McGill University in Montreal and really pursue theory and composition."
Along with his brother Jim Creeggan (Barenaked Ladies bass player), composer and keyboardist Andy was brought up in a musical household in which their mother taught piano and their father played by ear. The two brothers also perform and record as The Brothers Creeggan, releasing four albums thus far and touring in between Barenaked Ladies albums.
Andy recently released his third solo album, Andiwork III, an all-instrumental album full of funky grooves that's the perfect soundtrack for a martini party in a swanky bachelor pad. Just the right CD for DJs looking for breaks and anyone needing some background grooves for a late-night adventure. A new twist to lounge music.
