Every once in a while, we receive requests from local artists to throw a shoutout to their most recent meanderings. Evan Haywood, local musician and multi-media artist, does not disappoint, and we’re super thrilled to be a part of this project.

Gathering momentum to independently release his second solo LP, ‘Perfumed Gardens’, Haywood makes a splash with ‘Wounded Ways’, a very recent song and video he’s produced. Check it out here.

Further, you can find the LP Kickstarter campaign HERE. Haywood released his first LP in 2016. He’s back again with an even more ambitious project. View the link above for more comprehensive information.

We live local, we love local, and we support local. Show Evan some of that love! Thank you, Evan, for the sweet sounds and killer graphics.
