Xtra Magazine 'Melding honesty, conviction and street-smart coolness...Parry's theatrical approach to songwriting and her clear vocals are a joy to listen to!' CBC Radio 'it's Parry's unique way of examining the collective emotions of the world with such a charmingly dry wit that makes her stand out, and makes her bitterness so pleasing to the palate, and easy to digest...' Between the Lines, Michigan Incisive, witty songwriter and performance poet Evalyn Parry weaves together the political, hilarious, personal, and poetic in her signature combination of music and spoken-word.
