Manchester, United Kingdom
EVABEE is a songwriter, producer and recording artist who is a strong part of the bubbling Manchester underground scene and, as many Mancunian artists do, moves between different genres with ease.
Learning her craft at underground hip hop cyphers and jungle raves as one of few females firming the microphone, EVABEE brings classic street soul into a modern framework. With subtle, emotive vocals and lyrics floating over hard hitting boombap beats, its a combination that delivers maximum impact.
Capturing the new wave of Manchester’s music scenes, EVABEE delivers powerful sentiment, soulful words and possesses a distinct unifying sound; effortlessly drifting between Neo-Soul, Jazz and Electronic genres. With a fragility and vocal range bearing comparison to the likes of Fatima, Yukimi Nagano and Nanna B, her raw story telling capability is reminiscent of UK powerhouses Ms Dynamite and Floetry.
Strongly inspired by the Manchester music and nightlife scene, EVABEE is a natural born performer, appearing at esteemed shows such as Manchester International Festival (with good friends Children of Zeus), Beat Horizon, Gilles Peterson’s We Out Here Festival and Outlook Festival (for DRS’ Space Cadet Boat Party).
Since her debut single ‘Full Circle’ in 2019 (playlisted by BBC Sounds), EVABEE has accompanied solo releases with cuts on selected other labels, such as Swing Ting, Village Live, Circus Recordings, Flow Theory and her first Drum & Bass single ‘Unconditional’ (with DRS on Space Cadet), backed with a memorable remix from LSB.
With a growing back catalogue and support from artists such as Children of Zeus, DRS and DJ Marky, EVABEE is clearing aside the pandemic frustrations to plant new seeds for 2021; starting with her brand new single ‘T&T’ in April. The future looks very promising for this burgeoning vocal talent. Don’t sleep on EVABEE.
