With a voice so stunning it finds the soul immediately, Evangeline Gentle dreams of encouraging listeners to find strength in vulnerability, joy in open-heartedness and the power of compassion. Evangeline’s songs are assertions that in trying times of human disconnection, bravery is at the root of love and hope. A century old phrase first coined for their grandmother, Evangeline is “gentle by nature and gentle by name”. Evangeline was named the Emerging Artist at the Peterborough Folk Festival in 2015, a title first given to Serena Ryder in 2001. Evangeline has released three EP’s, and shared stages with respected canadian music favourites such as Basia Bulat, Terra Lightfoot and Matt Andersen. Gentle’s most recent release, What’s Golden Is Good, is a three song EP recorded in Hamilton, Ontario at Boxcar Studio by Sean Pearson in 2016. Evangeline is currently working on their first full length album with producer Jim Bryson.
