Today we’d like to introduce you to Evelyn Cormier.
Evelyn, please kick things off for us by telling us about yourself and your journey so far.
Music has always been a part of my life. I started playing violin at the age of 5 and continued for seven years, I was actually horrible at it! I really wanted to sing so I hung up the violin and started singing lessons. At about age 12, my father showed me a couple of chords on the guitar and I quickly became proficient enough to start writing my own music. At age 14, I had my own band that consisted of adult musicians. By age 15, I was booking paid gigs at local restaurants. By age 16, I started writing my first EP Ghost. At age 17, I was hired as an intern as the worship leader at Lake Sunapee Baptist Church. I released my debut EP Ghost in April of 2017 when I was 18. Now at the age of 19, I have released five singles and am currently working on new music with a producer in Georgia. I have had the opportunity to be on reality tv show and I also have other tv projects in the works.
Can you give our readers some background on your art?
I am a singer/songwriter who loves to paint pictures through my music using words and imagery that evokes nostalgia and emotion. I don’t want to tell people what to think or feel, I want to create an environment where the listener can be inspired to feel their own emotions and connect at a deep level as if it was written for them. My goal is to create music that allows people to relax, be reflective, and connect emotionally.
How do you think about success, as an artist, and what do quality do you feel is most helpful?
Success to me is not fame or fortune, but having real fans whether it only be ten fans in England, ten fans in Boston, 10 fans Australia–they are the ones streaming my music and reaching out to tell me how much they enjoy my music and that they are inspired by me. That is success to me. I believe in order to be truly successful, you need patience, passion and drive. Being an artist is not easy. Who loves being vulnerable, rejected, criticized and misunderstood? That is where the passion comes in and the drive to do better. Without it, it would be easy to crumble under the weight of it.
What’s the best way for someone to check out your work and provide support?
You can find my music on streaming sites such as Spotify, Apple, YouTube, Deezer, Instagram, Amazon as well many others.
