EVVY met us in Silverlake, CA to shoot for our In His Clothes series recently, which was a far cry from her hometown of Long Island, NY. Slightly tired from the night before, she was a pleasure to throw things on, as long as it wasn't overtly sexy. "I didn't realize I'd be wearing this today," she said light-heartedly. We promised we'd make it work, and no surprise, the shots came out beautifully.
EVVY, who is heating up the charts , released her self-titled album in 2014. The upbeat songs accompanied by incredible vocals make the EP an effortless listen. The stand out track for us was "Collide," which has been on repeat since we first started streaming it through Spotify (or Tidal or iTunes). In a close second, "Never Let You Go's" catchy beat and simple lyrics made it an instant obsession as well.
After the shoot, we decided to play our favorite game (second to spin the bottle), 21 Questions. Asking her the most random questions under the sun, we were happy she was able to have as a good time with it as we did. Check out her answers below.
