US singer/songwriter Evann McIntosh has showcased a handful of acoustic gems for the latest edition of Rolling Stone’s ‘In My Room’, a series in which artists perform from home while in quarantine.
The phrase “one to watch” gets thrown around rather liberally these days, but if ever it deserved to be used, it’s when talking about US artist Evann McIntosh. Aged just 16, McIntosh released her debut album in 2019, with its origins able to be traced back to when she first picked up a guitar at the age of nine.
The record was a major success for the young artist, with lead single “What Dreams Are Made Of” reaching over 20 million streams since its release. With a musical talent well beyond her years, and a career that is only just beginning to kick off, the future is looking immensely bright for McIntosh.
With singles such as “WIYULD” and “BULL$HIT” appearing in recent months, and scoring widespread acclaim thanks to their lush, expansive sound, McIntosh was kind enough to invite Rolling Stone into her garage as she stripped back a few of her tracks for the latest edition of “In My Room”.
Kicking things off with “Yours”, from her debut record, McIntosh showcases the natural talent she possesses which has managed to make her a household name in no time at all. Continuing her set with the unreleased “Call Me Lover”, the acclaimed artist wraps things up with an acoustic version of “WIYULD”, and despite a brief false start, becomes one of the most impressive songs from this far-too-brief spot.
A stunning example of what makes Evann McIntosh one of the most exciting artists on the scene today, it leaves you wanting so much more, and undoubtedly beginning to hope an acoustic EP might be on the way soon.
