I am happy to announce that I have been given the privilege of bringing you the exclusive release of her performance video as well. Check out the video below.
Archer has recently obtained an endorsement from Sennheiser Microphones and her new Christmas single will be featured in Macy's stores during this holiday season
Originally penned as a gift to her parents, this heartfelt song about missing loved ones during the holidays is about to pull the heartstrings of thousands of listeners across America.
Establishing herself as a dynamic live performer, Archer recently opened three shows for famed Irish Folk/Pop great Paul Brady and singer-songwriter Tyler Hilton at prominent East Coast venues in October, including Mexicali Live in Teaneck, New Jersey, River Club in Scituate, Massachusetts and City Winery in New York City. Archer will be back on stage at the The Standard in New York City on Tuesday, December 10.
Archer's debut single hit national radio on November 4, and was included on over 30,000 digital jukeboxes through AMI Entertainment this the holiday season. The track was produced by legendary producer Gary Katz, renowned for his groundbreaking recordings with Steely Dan as well as legendary figures Diana Ross, Joe Cocker, Laura Nyro and many others.
Katz, who also co-produced the single "Bad Behavior," from Archer's upcoming self-titled debut EP (due in early 2014), says, "Every once in a while, an artist comes along whose music separates them from the crowd. Evie Archer is one of those artists."
Archer's EP will also feature production by Martin Briley, a renowned British singer/songwriter who has penned songs for everyone from Celine Dion, *NSYNC and Pat Benatar to Gregg Allman and Kenny Loggins.
"I'm really excited about all these opportunities to record and perform my music," says Evie. "With 'On Christmas Day,' I wanted to write something from the heart, recognizing that painful situation that many people go through when they can't be close to the people they love during the holidays. I wrote it for my parents because I didn't have a job at the time and couldn't afford to buy a conventional gift. It's wonderful to think that a song that came from such a personal place can now touch so many people. One of my favorite lines in the song goes 'a letter never says everything it should say,'" she adds. "I love how the melody at the end conveys the perfect emotion. The first version of the song that Gary heard was my GarageBand demo, and I love how he helped me bring it to life."
