Inspiring, funny, and super hip is how The RAY Magazine described Evolution. Regarded by The Palladium Times as THE Group to watch. This Los Angeles-based quintet has cultivated a new generation of ears hungry for upbeat, soulful and absolutely purposeful, hilarious music.

Michael Maury first formed EVOLUTION in the fall of 2007 as his musical act for a Culture of Peace Concert Series performance. Michael called upon and reunited with long time college friend Rono Smith, to form an A Cappella ensemble for the show. After singing one song on the Culture of Peace stage, these 2 individuals knew there were reminded of the extraordinary magic in the harmonies.

Michael and Rono are no stranger to starting A Cappella groups. While working toward their undergraduate degrees at Ithaca College, they are proud to say, that they formed the still successful and ever-popular Ithacappella. Although it had been a while since Michael and Rono had been a part of the world of contemporary A Cappella, they decided it was time to embrace their roots and sing in Harmony once again.

The pieces of the ensemble had to be put in place. Through careful Craigslist postings, secret open mic searches, and even Facebook scouring, EVOLUTION was formed and theyve been inspiring audiences ever since.

From the start, EVOLUTION has remained true to their mission to connect with fans, uplift spirits, evoke smiles and heal the world through harmony. Their simple yet innovative sound has created great appeal and accolades within the A Cappella community and the world at large. In May of 2009, they were crowned Harmony Sweepstakes Champions of the greater Los Angeles Region. This past summer, Evolution walked away with the First Place trophy and the title of 2010 San Diego County Fair A Cappella Sing Off Champs.

EVOLUTION brings something fresh and remarkable to every performance. Their influences include a vast array of genres and styles. Their music is infused and affected by the various sounds of groups like Groove Armada, Little Boots, Kings of Leon, Cold Play and U2. They are moved and inspired by artists such as Jimi Hendrix, Eminem, and Huey Lewis. EVOLUTION has been guided by these great musical talents; however, their sound remains unique, encouraging, and incomparable.

EVOLUTION is always overjoyed with any opportunity they receive to share their music with the world. Their goal is to always leave you with a smile on your face and a skip in your step.
