All those who have seen her perform are unanimous: Demi Evans is much more than a voice, she is above all a luminous performer whose sincerity, strength of conviction and exuberance bring out the most jaded of audiences.
Demi expresses herself most powerfully when she puts her formidable energy at the service of her own repertoire, composed four-handed with her accomplice, Fred Morissey.
A follower of Nina Simone, whose poetic and humanist heritage she claims, raised in Texas in the cult of gospel and love of the blues, this Afro-American singer explores the registers of soul and folk-pop without forgetting to add a touch of country, enchanting the audience with her consummate mastery of the stage. Whether she’s singing about childhood innocence, separation, death, or the role of women in our society, whether she’s singing her own songs or drawing on those of others (including her old friend Stevie Wonder), Demi stirs up emotions with an unmistakable ring of truth.
Fleeting impressions, subtle words, a tender and lucid look at our daily lives… Demi‘s talent as a writer, superbly underlined by melodies written with Fred Morissey, leaves no one indifferent, and there is little doubt that the name of Demi Evans will soon become synonymous with major success.
After many ups and downs, Demi seems to be on the way of achieving her childhood goal of serving others by touching them with the grace of her talent.
