"Sonya Brown"

"Up and coming musician Evan McDonnell describes his bands’ sound as “what rock sounds like when someone doesn’t have too much eyeliner and hairspray soaking into their heads, so they can be themselves and rock proper”.

Being themselves and rockin’ proper seems to be a recipe for success; the Portland-based band is certainly getting noticed by fans and media alike: with recent performances under their belt, including rockin’ The Crystal Ballroom, Evan McDonnell is now slated to perform with Willie Nelson during SxSW.
