After an amazing CD release party this weekend for my new album Unbound, I am on the road again! Bernardo and I head outta town tomorrow to hit New York City,Philadelphia, and Washington DC as an acoustic duo. So, all you city folk: come on out and support us! We’d love to see you!
We are SO excited to return to The Bitter End, New York’s oldest rock club, as well as Melodies Cafe – formerly Milkboy Coffee – in Philly. Last year’s cross country tour brought us to these two clubs, and we are looking forward to gracing their stages again! We’ll be sharing the bill in both places with some fantastic musicians, so don’t miss us!
We will also be hitting two NEW venues on this tour: Columbia University’s Postcrypt Coffeehouse, and Ebenezer’s Coffeehouse in DC. As a Columbia alum, I am quite familiar with Postcrypt: tucked in the basement of the gorgeous St. Paul’s Church, this stone cavern makes for a spooky – but sonically magical! – venue for acoustic music. As for Ebenezer’s – I have never been, but I have heard along the folk circuit that it is one of DC’s top venues for original music. The capital may be shut down, but we will rock on – so come join us!
Cape Ann singer-songwriter Marina Evans will release her debut album “Unbound” at a special event on Sunday, Oct. 13, at the Cape Ann Community Cinema. The live performance will feature musicians from the North Shore as well as Bernardo Baglioni from Florence, Italy, where the album was recorded.
The 26-year-old began performing on Cape Ann almost a decade ago, and has developed her skills in her hometown and across the country. While studying abroad in Florence in 2008, she began collaborating with Florentine musicians.
“Just a few months ago, I wasn’t sure I would be able to pull this off. Funding a record is no joke,” she said in a statement. “But I was overwhelmed by support and encouragement from family, friends and fans — most of whom are right here on Cape Ann, and together, we all made it happen. So thank you. This record is for you —all of you.”
She launched a Kickstarter campaign in April to raise money to record the album. With more than 200 donors, she met her funding goal and began recording in May.
Doors open for the Oct. 13 event at 7:30 p.m. with the show at 8 p.m. The Cape Ann Community Cinema is at 21 Main St. in Gloucester.
And don’t forget: my CD Release Concert is coming up on Sunday, October 13 at the Cape Ann Community Cinema in Gloucester, MA! Be one of the first to get your hands on the new record, and to hear it live with a full band. See you soon, folks!
I am thrilled to announce the date of the CD release concert for my debut full-length album, Unbound! Featuring some of the North Shore’s best musicians, as well as an import from Italy (producer and guitarist Bernardo Baglioni), this show will present the album with a full, FANTASTIC band. The Cape Ann Community Cinema is an unusual and very cool venue. Housed above a grrrreat record store, Mystery Train, CACC features comfy couches, a full stage, and of course, beer and vino. Doors are at 7:30, and the show will begin at 8pm – don’t miss it! Be among the first to get your hands on the new album. Hope to see you there!
