Fresh Sounds: Emil Evans – Caramel

South-London-based singer-songwriter Emil Evans presents his new funky single Caramel.

Known for his gravelly vocals and buttery falsetto, Emil Evans, the young soulful singer, creates a sound that not only nods to the past but feels authentic and contemporary. The South-London born 23 year old, grew up listening to an eclectic mix, from seventies soul and reggae records his dad would play, to the sunny Latin-American and Bossa-nova music played by his mother. It wasn’t until the age of 16, after hearing these classic samples used in Hip-hop and modern Jazz records, he picked up the guitar and began to carve his own sound. Influenced by great soul legends like Gil Scott-Heron and Roy AyersEmil’s song-writing is lyric and melody driven, layered with snapshots of memories, characters both real and fictional, to colourful metaphors revolving around issues in the world today.

 

Listen to Emil Evans new single Caramel:

Caramel is a soulful groove with a sound that nods to the past but feels contemporary. Layered with jazzy brass stabs and a buttery falsetto, Emil explores the sugar-rush sensation when meeting his lover in the heart of London after working a 9-5. A song that not only has a catchy chorus but a funky beat that melts in the ears and leaves you tapping your feet.
