Evelyn Horan was born in Mons, Belgium, the city where Vincent Van Gogh once lived and painted. Since then she has lived throughout the world, from South Korea to Italy to the United States. She is a classically trained flutist, as well as a classical and jazz pianist, guitarist and vocalist. By age fourteen she was performing solo and singing covers while at the same time debuting her own compositions for a rough-and-tumble, all-male audience in many venues throughout her adopted Central New York. She has performed gigs and shows as a flutist, pianist, and singer/songwriter. During her high school years, she accompanied legendary jazz and rhythm and blues greats such as Lew Soloff and Ernie Watts on both piano and voice. As Lew Soloff told her: "Don’t ever let anyone tell you to sing differently. Keep singing the way you sing.” Currently, she is living in Boston and is attending Berklee College of Music as a scholarship student, pursuing a professional music degree. The songs she writes are mainly acoustic/pop based with lots of jazz influences. Her musical influences include her mother, Mary Horan, who is a jazz vocalist; McFLY; Lady Gaga; Lily Allen; Josiah Leming; Wild Belle; Kate Nash; The Arctic Monkeys; Nina Simone, Ed Sheeran, Tom Odell, and so many more.
