Evangeline Gentle Shares Live Video “Ordinary People”

Evangeline Gentle shares their live video “Ordinary People” today; check out the video below. The video premiered with Audiofemme, who say, “With Gentle’s voice front and center against acoustic guitar, the song is simple and sweet, as is the video.” The Scottish-Canadian singer-songwriter is set to release their debut album, Evangeline Gentle, on August 21 via Sonic Unyon. Pre-save the album HERE.

The video follows the recent release of two a cappella singles and videos, “You and I” and “Black is the Colour,” both of which may be streamed and shared on multiple platforms HERE. In lieu of their recently cancelled spring and summer tour dates, Gentle has been performing live on Facebook and Instagram every other Thursday at 3PM Eastern; check out their streams HERE and HERE.

Gentle began writing their self-titled album, produced by Jim Bryson, at the age of 19. Written during several important coming-of-age moments in Gentle’s life, the record focuses on openheartedness, finding the strength to be vulnerable, and uplifting marginalized voices.

Born in Scotland and raised in both Scotland and Canada, Gentle began writing music and performing at 14 years old. Recognizing their own queerness and gender fluidity, Gentle and has long been passionate about both music and social justice.

“During the three years I spent writing this LP, I trudged through periods of deep self-doubt, often wondering if I should give up,” Gentle says. “As a child I believed performing was my inevitable fate. Somewhere along the road to adulthood I internalized a lot of messaging about my queerness as something that made me inherently less gifted and valuable as an artist. Each song on this record is a landmark on the journey toward reestablishing my childlike ambition and spirit.”

At just 23 years old, Gentle has already earned ample praise for their burgeoning career. They were named Emerging Artist at the 2015 Peterborough Folk Fest, Best Female Vocalist of the Year at the 2015 Wire Awards, and have shared the stage with artists including Basia Bulat, Craig Cardiff, Matt Andersen, Terra Lightfoot, Sam Weber and more.
