Mike Evin is a Canadian piano pop tunesmith with a loyal following across North America and beyond for over ten years. Evin has independently released five albums and two EP’s, and his champions include Barenaked Ladies, Ron Sexsmith and Australia’s Ben Lee. CBC Music called Evin the “next big thing”, and the lead single from his fifth full-length album Life As A Lover, “Have I Ever Loved?”, was among the Top 20 most played songs of 2015 on Sirius XM’s CBC Sonica. In 2017, the Barenaked Ladies brought him out to support their US theatre tour, and he’s also shared stages with Sexsmith, Dan Mangan and Sarah Harmer. Fans love the spontaneity and energy of his live shows.
Mike Evin’s music is a modern spin on the classic piano pop of Billy Joel and Joe Jackson, and he’s been mentioned with Ben Folds and Jason Mraz. But he has a distinct voice - a heartfelt reflection of the human experience. His time spent in Cuba, New Orleans, and the Aniishnaabe community of Manitoulin Island have all shaped his art.
Fans love the spontaneity and energy of his live shows, and he brings this excitement and pop sensibility to the traditional music of New Orleans.
His latest single,“Recovering Romantic”, was written in New Orleans, and is the lead single from Evin’s sixth album, Evin On Earth, due later this year.
