Bass and drum rock duo Evil Beaver has shared the stage with a diversity of musical artists including; Bel-Rays, Chevelle, Fu Manchu, The Gossip, Imperial Teen, Lightning Bolt, Millionaire, Nina Hagen, Peg Boy, Polysics, Rasputina, Shellac, The White Stripes.
The music is rock & roll that features only bass and drums. It dynamically flows between loud and soft sounds, with hooks that blend naturally the music.
Evie Evil's vocals melodies are dynamic. Her voice is seductive, soft, heavenly and goth-like at times, and at other times aggresive, strong and powerful.
As a bassist, Evie is a pioneer. Her bass playing skills are mind blowing. Her playing style is uniquely original with over-powering hooks.
In 1999, shortly after forming in Chicago, Evil Beaver, connected with E. Lago Ent. Grp. Int. and Grammy-nominated producer Dave Trumfio, to record the first two full-length releases, Lick It (2000) and Pleased to Eat You (2003). Songs from these recordings are featured on ESPN.
In 2005 the follow up E.P., "Models of Virtue" featured a significant lineup change that garnered much attention. Opposite Evie was former Queens of The Stone Age drummer Gene "Honey B" Trautmann, who in 2007 was hired as drummer for The Eagles of Death Metal.
2006 was yet another prolific year for Evil Beaver, along with the re-addition of original drummer John "Jojo Beav” Jones, 2006 saw the release of "In the Spirit of Resilient Optimism".
In November of 2007 the double album, "Enlightening Without Dazzling"/ "2 Berne Live" was released and followed by extensive international touring.
From the first release "Lick It" (2000), to the most recently released, "7 YEARz of ROCK” (2009), Evil Beaver continues to push the boundaries of kick ass rock & roll.
EVIL BEAVER is always performing and touring internationally. With its uniquely beautiful sound and showmanship, Evil Beaver has forged into a not-2-miss live experience.
Look for new CD from EVIL BEAVER this Spring. Followed by tourz of the USA and Europe.
