Ladin sings and plays infectious clawhammer banjo, while Terry is a master percussionist. It was Appalachian string band music pared to the absolute minimum of accompaniment, but packed with an orchestra's worth of rhythm.
--Music City Roots, Nashville

You don't often hear words like "traditional," and "authentic" paired with "innovative" and "unique," but Evie Ladin has brought them together brilliantly in the self-titled, debut album of the Evie Ladin Band, and the result is truly a high point in new old-time music.
--Folkworks, Los Angeles

Evie Ladin Band Super fun set with Evie Ladin Band at the CBA Father's Day Festival - got me stoked on the future and our new record, out in 2016! Spent June steeped in old-time music, and now I get to go farther back, to the original instrument and the rich culture of Bali, Indonesia for the 7th International Body Music Festival! This will be a Body Music and Bali adventure like no other, and I look forward to sharing it with people from upwards of 15 countries. See you in the tropics.

EVIE LADIN BAND MUSIC

ELB WON the Fan Vote for AMERICANA ALBUM OF THE YEAR by the Independent Music Awards!

Ladin's voice is a revelation. Clear, strong, delicate and emotive all at the same time...her exemplary examples of adult love songs deal with complicated subject matter, yet never lose their swing or get bogged down by maudlin sentimentality. In fact, the music is gorgeous.
--No Depression

This compelling record and her amazing band lineup should finally earn Evie Ladin the reputation she deserves in the folk music world...she has outdone herself this time. --Fiddlefreak

Deliciously quirky...imagine a mash-up of Michelle Shocked and Emmy Lou Harris! --New Times

Her rich and smoky voice resembles Natalie Merchant's, and her songs are as fetching as Nancy Griffith's...they're all catchy, with mature lyrics and skilled phrasing.
--Old-Time Herald
