“A little bit of me” is the award-winning debut album of Evelyn Laurie. It has been described as “…a stunningly beautiful album” (Jazz Views)
Evelyn is from Paisley in the West of Scotland. The first time she walked onto a stage at only 4 years old during a talent show, she was bold enough to grab the microphone from the MC’s hand so that she could sing her song When Irish Eyes are Smiling in her own unique style. Sadly she didn’t win but has been singing ever since!
Around 14 years ago, she began her training in vocal jazz and since then has performed professionally at gigs around Scotland.
Evelyn’s love of music spans many genres. Her debut album reflects her eclectic taste and includes some of her own songs – inspired by 1960’s spy themes and Carmina Burana – alongside jazz standards plus her own interpretations of Sandy Denny’s folk classic, “Who knows where the time goes” and the ever popular country hit, “Wichita lineman”.
The wonderful Euan Stevenson on piano leads a stellar line up of Mario Caribe on bass, Tom Gordon, percussion, Frank Bolam, guitar, and Konrad Wiszniewski on tenor sax.
