Miss Shevaughn and Yuma Wray
Miss Shevaughn & Yuma Wray multi-task on guitars, banjo, mandolin, organ, glockenspiel, lap steel and more to bring to life the urgency of Southern Soul, the earthiness of classic country and the pioneering spirit of 60's and 70's Blues Rock. Miss Shevaughn has a truly powerful voice that ignites, roars and flickers and Yuma Wray has at
his disposal an arsenal of instrumental talents that underscore the duo's unique, honest and compelling storytelling
Derek Evry and his Band of Misanthropes
Derek Evry, an alt/pop rock songwriter from Arlington, Virginia has been writing and performing his original music since 1999. He is currently touring the eastern seaboard, promoting the September 8, 2012 release of his third studio album, "Here's To Better Misery." Derek's singles "Donor Body Parts", "We're Not", “Wait For You”, “When We Get Home”, & his holiday song “Hey! Ho! Let It Snow!” have been in regular rotation on DC101 (101.1 FM D.C.).
Here's the music video for his song “When We Get Home”: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GGW-4CCqbJQ
Check out a sampler video of the songs from “Here’s To Better Misery:
The new album was mastered by famed engineer Rob Fraboni (Bob Dylan, The Band, Eric Clapton, The Rolling Stones, Tim Hardin, The Beach Boys, Joe Cocker, Bonnie Raitt and Bob Marley), and features the bass playing of Epitaph Records recording artists Motion City Soundtrack’s Matt Taylor.
Derek's songs "Without You", “All I’m Saying” & “Wait For You” have been featured in the hit ABC Television's crime drama "Castle". You can check out the songs on ABC's Music Lounge.
You can see Derek’s band, “Derek Evry & His Band of Misanthropes”, performing “Wait For You” at a headlining show at Arlington, Virginia’s IOTA Club & Cafe in March of 2013:
"Derek Evry’s album, “Here’s to Better Misery,” is full of the kind of energy that only rock-and-roll can provide. The record begins with high intensity and doesn’t let up: no ballads, no fabricated production techniques that might slow the vibe. It’s all guitars, bass and drums… The album is a great rock-and-roll romp. But maybe even more impressive is the real and organic feeling of the collection. It seems that Evry didn’t overthink anything, instead going with what he felt at the moment. And that was good-old fashioned loud rock-and-roll." - Album review: "Here's to Better Misery" by Moira E. McLaughlin, Washington Post, September 7, 2012
"Not so much an earworm as a mind blower, ponderous visions of heartache, heartbreak and the angst-ridden emotional spaces therein dominate [Derek Evry's] latest album… Fans of Weezer will enjoy Evry’s Rivers Cuomo-esque vocal over a lush bed of churning and steady alt-pop tinged guitars and drums, proof that great music is a timeless sound." Album review: "Here's to Better Misery" by Marcus Dowling, OnTap Magazine, September 1, 2012
