More recently, I’ve been embarking on a solo endeavor under the name Evan Anthony. I’m working on a solo record as we speak & I just released a single entitled “Harvest (September’s Finally Here!)”. My bass player Luke Hargus & I produce our all of our music. All of my music is available for streaming. If you catch me jamming solo or w/ other players, don’t be surprised to see me playing a piano, autoharp, egg shaker or mandolin- I can’t sit still & I like to shake things up!
