On stage, Evan Hammer is a barefoot dancing, riotous bass player. Offstage, he has made a name for himself as a songwriter, crafting his tunes while isolated within his piano room during marathon songwriting sessions. His eclectic indie sound integrates both Killers fever and Elliott Smith resignation, with a strong connection to expressive Bowie-esque melodies and driving Kings of Leon motion. In Bright Day for a Frog’s Rebellion, Evan Hammer worked with a variety of singers and engineers, including Ben Miller (the Low Anthem), Guy Benny (Locksley), and Jack Gauthier (Dispatch, John Hammond).
This Brooklyn based musician has spent the last few months traveling around the northeast with his band, Big Mosey, playing shows, including New York’s Arlene’s Grocery, Boston’s Cantab Lounge, the Utica Music Festival, and New York’s Figment Festival. Big Mosey’s first EP, Homeward At Daybreak, co-produced by Jeremy Sklarsky (Freelance Whales), pairs Hammer with a gruff woodsy singer and tenacious drummer. Their dirty grooving tunes nod to grunge groups like Pearl Jam, yet ache and growl in the vein of Howlin' Wolf or Tom Waits.
