EVAN DALY is a complex mind, forever deep in thought, about life, about music, and about what it means to be blessed with the gift of music, in this life. Learning piano as a young child, he moved onto guitar, bass, and drums as a teenager, and despite his ability to sing, it was shyness that held Evan back from wanting to share this skill publicly. Though, step by step on a journey of self-discovery and personal growth, knowing he has what it takes, plus much more. Evan is now unleashing the inner vocalist, letting the world know that he is here, he is ready, and he wants to be heard.
Being a professional working drummer for many years, Evan’s timing and rhythm is impeccable. That, combined with jazzy chords and funky bass guitar work of his favourite artists such as Michael Jackson, Prince, Stevie Wonder, James Brown makes for a very rhythmic, percussive sound to get the body grooving, while being beautifully harmonically pleasing at the same time.
In 2016 Evan made a goal, to step out from behind the drum kit, and to take on life as a solo musician, as both a cover artist, and a recording artist with his own material, and that is exactly what he has done. Live performances can range from an intimate vocals/acoustic guitar arrangement, to the full blown one-man band set up, equipped with a foot Cajon bass drum, a foot Cajon snare drum, loop pedals and effects. Evan also fronts his own band The Evan Daly Collective, featuring the best musicians available ranging from a trio to a 5 or 6 piece band. Check out his video below!
