Live Review: Bob Evans + Laura Imbruglia - Karova Lounge, Ballarat (22.08.13)

Bob Evans has a special little place in my heart because he was actually the first artist I saw at my first ever music festival being Big Day Out in 2007.

Live Review: Bob Evans + Tigertown - The Cambridge Hotel, Newcastle (09.05.13)

You know you're in for a good night when there’s three people lined up an hour before doors open and already there’s enough buzzing excitement to not only fill, but shatter the aptly named surroundings of the Cambridge Hotel's Glasshouse… (I’m not ashamed to confirm I was one of those three, the other two girls were complete strangers, but whose obvious enthusiasm proved infectious.)

Album Review: Bob Evans - Familiar Stranger (2013 LP)

Leaving the suburbs behind, Bob Evans’ Familiar Stranger hits a lush, layered note. Cannily on-trend, in touch with all the latest tropes of nostalgic pop, it’s a departure from the acoustic guitar-driven sounds of his so-called suburban trilogy.
