Evenson is a 22 year-old pop artist.
He recently released new single HOW CAN I SLEEP.
Such a powerful tune. Evenson captivates listeners with his funky melodies, outstanding vocals, and solid hooks. Lyrically, he’s a genius. All words have meaning.
“I wrote HOW CAN I SLEEP in the wake of the protests and racial injustices that were being brought to light this past summer. Information was at an all-time high and for a guy that has become more of a recluse the deeper I dive into music, I found it hard to put the phone down. I wanted to do my part and acquire more knowledge at whatever cost. So the song is pretty much about me learning to navigate in a world and racially unjust system. As black men for so long we’ve grown accustomed to the pain and the suffering, so sometimes the best way to survive is learning to be okay that things take time to get better. I had trouble processing thoughts for days on end and that was the first time ever in my life where I actually felt sensory overload (I think). I wanted to write the lyrics from an ambiguous lens so that some listeners may even think I’m referring to a girl. I guess the song represents learning to live with your demons, whatever that is for you.”
HOW CAN I SLEEP deserves a listen. Music made from the soul.
