Evi Jai is ready for her moment. For the Richmond, Virginia native, singing is like breathing - it's second nature. "I sing when I can't speak," Evi says. "Anytime I feel anxious the first thing I do is hum. Sometimes a melody will hit me and I'll record it on my phone," which is how her debut "Mr. Green" came to be. The track is a meeting of smoky vocals and brassy lyrics with an undeniable pop sensibility that led her to be discovered by Post Malone and a connection via Instagram.
Evi Jai isn't shy about touching the world with her music, it's her prime objective. "I want my music to really mean something to people. Everybody wants to be somebody, everyone wants to mean something and that's hopefully the feeling my music will give them."
