"Hearty Vibes"

EvanIvan is a Canadian singer-songwriter and multi-instrumentalist who makes uplifting, well-crafted music and has a new EP out called 'Before The Fall'.

'Search & Rescue' is the track below and I was astounded to see how many plays the track has had (16). It's a very nice alternative track and I'm hoping that by reaching out to the HV fans that this track can gain the publicity it deserves. -


"Spotlight: EvanIvan"

We recently put out a poll for our first ever ‘Local Band or Musician of the Year.’ Unfortunately, we only had room for 10 different acts on the ballot. However, this is the first installment of our ‘Honourable Mentions,’ the acts who definitely caught our attention this year and narrowly missed the cut. We wish we had room for everyone!

Evan Clarke (of EvanIvan) first reached out to us back in July, looking for some coverage on our website. We love to support all of them local artists, but what struck me most about Evan’s email was that all of his EP’s proceeds would be going to the Multiple Sclerosis Society of Canada. An alumnus of Vancouver’s Nimbus School of Recording Arts, Clarke was drawn to the cause by his dad’s diagnosis with multiple sclerosis. Inspired by his father’s optimism during the ordeal, he felt a need to contribute – using none other than his music.

I’m going through this phase where I’m really into indie-pop tunes, and Clarke’s tracks definitely hit the spot with, “Before the Fall.” My favourite was the light-sounding ‘Postscript,’ I adored the airy (is this even a word) vocals!

Following up to the summer release, EvanIvan (which also features Celine Chuang and Reed Lannan), recently released their “quintessential Christmas album.” Perfect listening for those days leading up to Christmas day – and the lingering days when you just want to bask in the spirit of the holidays – that being said, it’s definitely a different approach than most Christmas-themed albums. Pair “Where the Love Light Gleams” with a cup of eggnog for optimal listening experience!

Oh yes! I forgot to mention that for a second time, all of the proceeds are going to a good cause. This time around, it’s the Canadian Red Cross, where the money will be helping victims of Typhoon Haiyan in the Philippines. I’m overly impressed with their efforts to share their music with the masses, along with their good incentives. You can’t go wrong with either. I can’t wait to hear more from EvanIvan this upcoming year – they’re doing great things already!

If you’d like to take a listen (I recommend it), all of their music is available on Bandcamp. Both albums are “pay what you want,” so even if you’re feeling a little broke, you can still access to their charming tunes! I have left the stream for “Where the Love Light Gleams” below to entice you - take a listen! - Chloe Hoy
