Making a Record…

With Eli West producing and Bruce Kaphan at the controls, we are in the best of hands as the Evie Ladin Band dives into our most personal record, with our tightest band. We’ll soon be kicking off a CrowdFunding Campaign with a host of new videos from all sides of our musical lives, and hope you’ll help us get the music out to the world. Stay Tuned!

After an intense month of 9 hr daily rehearsals in the heat of El Sauzal, Las Canarias, Spain, we launched the first incarnation of BODY MUSIC, a new, full-scale show with an incredibly talented cast of Body Musicians. Booked by IMG Artists, the work will premier in Europe 2016 and in the US 2017. In the meantime, the post-rehearsal ocean swimming and crazy fresh fish dinners kept us going strong!

Solo?

The 7th International Body Music Festival was an extraordinary, life changing event, and I thought I knew what was going to happen! Artists and participants from 15 countries, in cultural exchange with Balinese in the most potent ways – through music, dance, and laughter. Bali is a Hindu enclave in Indonesia, where daily life is filled with creative ritual – a fully artistic life in service to the gods, and community. Art is in the doing. Not in talking or writing about it, in the daily experience of creating and doing. I try to hold on to this now that I’m home, and working on songs and tunes for an upcoming solo recording. Me with Banjo. I’ve never thought this music necessary to record, as it too is all about the doing, the experience. And yet, my audience is always asking for straight up banjo tunes, so here we go. Looking forward to working with the fabulous Joe Bass in Floyd, VA on making a stripped down record. Now how to keep the creative process alive in our tech-riddled, money driven world?
