Sam Evian Live at WNXP’s Sonic Cathedral

Sam Evian is a master of melody. Both in his production work (Big Thief, Palehound, Widowspeak) and solo efforts, Evian has an unmatched ability to create universally approachable songs. While his latest record Plunge showcases this craftsmanship and sensibility, it also pushes Evian’s sound to new heights. Fans have grown accustomed to his falsetto and whispering, dreamy vocals, but Plunge highlights a fuller vocal range layered with louder-than-usual guitars and percussion. Still, this sonic shift stays within Evian’s lane — perfectly agreeable indie pop.

Watch Sam Evian perform “Jacket” and “Rollin’ In” from Plunge live at WNXP’s Sonic Cathedral.
