Watch out world, here comes edin from NewZealand. Dunedin's favourite band Evolver have released their first disc on BMG.
Evolver are: Scott Brown (bass) + Tony Dick (drums) + Emmanuelle Gomez (vocals and piano) + Phil Patrick (guitar and vocals)
With roots in reggae and rock, all members contribute to songwriting, making Evolver's live sound one with driving force rhythms and complimentary melodies. Both danceable and lyrical, Evolver's eclectic set ensures something for everyone who loves music and majick.
