Biography


Self-described as, “In your face rock with an incredible female vocalist.” Evro is an alternative rock band from the Philadelphia area that strives to have a strong unique sound. The four member band creates catchy hooks and has amazing energy to captivate all types of audiences. Although a new and emerging band, Evro is diligently working in the Philly music scene.

It was almost an accident of fate for the members to have come together again. For DeFusco (drummer) Matt Gordon (guitarist) and Brian Vail (bassist), this was the third collective musical endeavor. The band finally came together after years of improvisation in various projects after meeting Janelle Korkus (lead singer). Even though all the members have been part of various other musical projects and began with different outlooks, this was something that seemed right at the time for each member to further their talent. "I would have never joined this project if it weren't for Janelle's incredible vocals and having good friends who equally write music..." DeFusco mentions. Evro's songs are all collectively created which helps promote diversity in their sound.

Evro has headlined and shared the stage with many talented acts such as: Foster Child (formers members of Fuel and Octane), Rome in a Day (Played VH-1 Save the Music), Head (worked with Phil Nichaelo producer of Aerosmith), The Rye Coalition (toured with Queens of the Stone Age, Alice in Chains and Foo Fighters), Christy Jefferson & The Core Four (toured with Kansas), Sharon Little (toured with Robert Plant), Automatic Black (signed to Arista Records), Thriving Ivory, Spilt Decision, The Lords, Zelazowa, Blue Collar, Reality Stricken, StoneJackBallers, Jaded Faith, Mayoon, Shannon Cole, In Flight Radio, Rachel Platten, Christine Martucci Band, Amanda Kaletsky, Loretta Bilieux, Spoons for Adam, Junior League, Melinda Davis, The Eleventh Hour, Torsion, Ang & Ris, Maria DuBiel, Gretchen Witt, Hanus, Morning Side, Proven Worth, Spanish Blue, Pop Johnsons, Four Years Past , The Difference, Ben Hash, Sinner Saints, Under Your Bed and others.

Evro's unique and energizing sound can be attributed to the vast influences that each member brings to the band. Evro strives to mesh all types of sounds and present them with a unique and fervent energy. Continuing to promote their unique sound, Evro is currently promoting their first album in hopes to reach out to as many fans as possible. They are diligently working to overcome musical challenges and strive to constantly achieve higher goals in the music industry.
