Evelyn Evelyn Kick Off First-Ever US Tour Today!

“Amanda Palmer… joins the sonic circus as half of a freak show musical act, the latest charming project for the musically gifted singer/songwriter.”
– Wired

“…one of the most intriguing pop projects of recent years.”
– Times Online

“…Palmer’s newest project may be her grandest and weirdest yet.”
– Pitchfork

“…sounds… something like the accompaniment to a Coney Island freak show circa 1862 meets Barnum & Bailey, with contemporary references to debit cards and “dickheads” sprinkled throughout.”
– Entertainment Weekly

Evelyn Evelyn, the world’s only conjoined twin singer-songwriter duo “discovered” by Amanda Palmer of the Dresden Dolls and renowned minstrel Jason Webley, have released their debut album and will be touring the US beginning May 17. From the vaudevillian tracks “Have You Seen My Sister Evelyn?” and the quirky “Elephant Elephant” to the menacing country-tinged love ballad “You Only Want Me ‘Cause You Want My Sister” and the ukulele rendition of Joy Division’s “Love Will Tear Us Apart” the record will suck you into the world and saga of the Evelyn sisters.

In concert, the Evelyn sisters harmonize and alternate vocals while accompanying themselves on piano, accordion, guitar, ukulele and even a bit of percussion. In addition to the twins’ performances, circus composer, Sxip Shirey will open each night and Amanda Palmer and Jason Webley will each perform sets of their solo material to finish out the evening.

For a taste of what’s coming to a theater near you, check out the videos of “Have You Seen My Sister Evelyn?” and “You Only Want Me ‘Cause You Want My Sister,” filmed at Evelyn Evelyn’s performance at OBERON in Cambridge, MA.
