Evan James Redsky is a singer/songwriter from Blind River, ON by way of Toronto. Having spent five years on the road with Juno-nominated rock group Single Mothers - he has since left to finish writing and recording his debut effort. Produced and recorded with John Dinsmore (Kathleen Edwards, Donovan Woods) at Lincoln County Social Club - the Danny Wolfe EP is a return to Redsky's indigenous story telling roots.
"...an unfeigned country ballad about his indigenous bloodline and life on the reserve...an allusion to the residential-school system and its effects on his kin. Warm acoustic tones are cut with Redsky’s sandy drawl...a record showcasing a rugged sound that’s interspersed with whining lap steel and palatable twang."
“Though the songs' content is rooted in Redsky's Indigenous heritage, the sound is pure Americana, equal parts Springsteen and Petty...”
