Evangeline Gentle: Drop My Name

By Kerry Doole

Evangeline Gentle - Drop My Name (Coax Records): This is the new single from the upcoming self-titled debut album from the Scottish-born singer/songwriter.


It showcases a talent to be watched carefully. Gentle's voice grabs you instantly with its purity and expressiveness, and the lyrics boldly promote self-worth, with lines like "I'm nobody's toy, nobody's second-best."

The track “is about knowing what you’re worth, when you’re being taken advantage of, and when to walk away,” says Gentle in a bio.

Drop My Name is given a typically subtle production treatment by Jim Bryson (Oh Susanna, Kathleen Edwards), with mastering by Grammy-nominated Philip Shaw Bova. The album was recorded at Bryson’s Fixed Hinge studio together with percussionists Pascal Delaquis and Matthew Greco, and vocalist Carleigh Aikins.

Winner of the Emerging Artist at the 2015 Peterborough Folk Fest and named Best Female Vocalist of the year at the 2015 Wire Awards, Gentle wrote this LP over three years, collaborating with Bryson and slowly working on demos together. The results are eagerly anticipated.

After showcasing at the Folk Music Ontario Conference on Sept. 27, Gentle plays six Ontario shows. Dates here
