Lynn Yew Evers’ musical talent playfully surfaced on a toy piano at the age of 4.  Lynn was born and raised in a vast historical city in Malaysia called Ipoh. While growing up amidst the beauty of a tropical oasis, Lynn developed a deep connection to nature, which also nurtured her inspiration and intention behind her music. She began performing at age 6 and composing and improvising by age 9. Lynn had undeniably found her calling early in life, and began her musical career as early as 15 years old as a piano coach for children. Inspired by classical greats such as Beethoven, Chopin and Rachmaninoff, she earned a degree from the Trinity College of Music in London. She returned to Malaysia determined to further explore and develop her lifelong passion for music and immediately began to shine as a performer, arranger and composer in her native land.

Since 1985 she has organized and performed in multitude of concerts in Malaysia and the U.S. as a piano soloist and accompanist for renowned choirs and ensembles. Her countless high level appearances lead to a well-deserved invitation to the Malaysian Palace to play for the King and Queen of Malaysia, as well as the Prime Minister and other Malaysian dignitaries.  Her passion and determination lead her to relocate to the United States in 2009 to further pursue her well-accomplished career as a professional musician.

Lynn collaborated with Grammy Award winning guitarist Will Ackerman at his legendary Imaginary Roads Studio in Vermont. Her second solo piano album “Dawn of Peace,” is a captivating production which truly captures the excellent ability of Ackerman and his team to effortlessly synthesize with the vision of the artist. “Dawn of Peace” brings to light the fluidity of Lynn’s music while expressing her intuitive sense of translating the peaceful melodies expressed in nature. The close of 2015 brought Evers to the prestigious Carnegie Hall in New York where she performed select pieces from her award winning album “Dawn of Peace”. In 2016 she performed again at Carnegie Hall with her new album music “Elysian” which has won many awards so far. With “Elysian” being nominated as the best piano and instrumental album, Evers was invited to perform in Grand Ole Opry House.

With her gift of perfect pitch and an intuitive understanding of music, Lynn translates her every day environment into amazing solo piano compositions that evoke a range of emotions and imaginations which allows the audience to experience her music as well as hear it. “Lynn Yew Evers has the heart of a romantic and the hands of an artist. The combination is very powerful. Her music is like a walk through the most beautiful garden you’ve ever imagined; her compositions imbued with profound emotion and grace.” – William Ackerman, Producer Grammy Award winning guitarist.

 

 

Lucas Kirby is a New Age, solo pianist and composer hailing from Salt Lake City, Utah and resides in Spokane, Washington. By the age of nine he demonstrated an unyielding passion for piano music. After releasing his debut album “Tears of Glory”, at age 20, his music has been featured in documentaries, films and numerous musical projects around the globe; including the score for College Debts, the last film featuring the late Academy Award winning actress, Celeste Holmes. His latest album, “Onward”, consists of music from as early as 13 years old.

“Every once in a while, a new artist comes along that you know is something really special. Lucas Kirby gives me that feeling in much the same way the late Dax Johnson did fifteen or so years ago. Ironically, both are/were from Spokane, Washington and both create(d) piano music that packs raw emotion into every note. What a powerhouse of an album and what a promising young artist we have here! Very highly recommended!” – Kathy Parsons, MainlyPiano.com

Kirby is currently recording his third album, “When You Dream”. Included in this album is “Odyssey”, which placed in the top 20 for unreleased worldwide piano compositions for the Blue Spiral Records, Minimal Piano Series competition. The album will be released by spring, 2018.

Surrounding himself by what he loves most as well as individuals who share his same passion, has given him the opportunity to indulge in his life dream.
Kirby portrays the human spirits strength in picking oneself up and moving forward. He emanates well, the roller coaster of emotion that life often brings us. Put simply, Kirby’s music is a celebration and portrait of the human condition.

“Minimalist, intimate, sometimes passionate and sometimes subtle, Kirby invites us to impressionistic music full of clarity, color and light. Not in vain, immersed in his work is equivalent to walking through the water gardens of Claude Monet …” – Auxie Gonzalas, The Waves On Air.
