Evie Sands is an undeniable "hidden treasure". She’s a versatile talent:who possesses a one-of-a-kind voice; she’s a naturally funky guitarist, admired songwriter, compelling performer, meticulous professional, intuitive and perceptive producer, bountiful band mate and accomplished musician’s musician. No less than Dusty Springfield cited Evie as favorite singer and immortal Johnny Cash described her thusly:

"She’s got the stardust in her eyes, she’s got silver bells in her voice and you’d think she’s got electricity in her fingers the way she plays that guitar left-handed and upside down."

Evie Sands is six decades into her mythical career, recording as a teen for Lieber and Stoller’s Blue Cat label as part of the Brill Building legacy, weathering infamous music biz ups and downs and continuing on with the DIY current release of her captivating marblized-vinyl EP, “Shine For Me,” just released as part of 2017 Record Store Day. Evie's inspiring resilient career has managed to traverse the musical spectrum from Tin Pan Alley, teenage package tours, national TV exposure, major label hits, cult fandom, Northern Soul idolatry, multiple Indie label #1's to digital DIY with her own synthesis of soulfully sophisticated pop.

Her artistry is cross-generationally deemed “timeless” by the varied likes of Barbra Streisand, Frankie Valli, Gladys Knight, Cher, Tom Jones, Missy Elliot, Beth Orton, Jazmine Sullivan, Lucinda Williams, Belle & Sebastian and Beck – all fans who have covered her catalog.

 “Shine For Me” represents a pinnacle for Evie, showcasing her considerable gifts in full flight with her uniquely appealing cocktail; it's a masterfully delivered six-song original EP that delivers a fresh mixology of Evie's best work. Her fluid “wrong-way guitar” probes her shifting rhythms and that signature liquid voice wraps around her infectious melodies with intimate sincerity and innate sensuality.

Evie’s recordings and performances are all-too-rare events, and this Towne Crier Cafe appearance will be coming fresh from headlining the prestigious Ponderosa Stomp and will be her first upstate New York area date since 2000. Past, present and future and the sheer breadth of her multifaceted skill-set will be on display, proving she is as vibrant and vital as ever; seemingly forever young with that emotive voice, indelible songs, tasty play, and bewitchingly artful arrangements.
