evalyn parry is an award-winning songwriter, spoken word artist, and theatrical creator based in Toronto. From 19th century cycling heroines to 21st century sailors; from “feminine protection” to bottled water to the quest for the Northwest Passage, evalyn’s unique, outspoken creations hold out a powerful vision of social and personal change, her irreverent wit holding nothing sacred. Accompanying herself on guitar, water bottle, shruti box and loop pedals, parry shoots from the hip and aims for the heart. Fierce, funny, poignant and provocative, she has been delighting audiences at storytelling, poetry, music and theatre festivals from coast to coast of North America over the past decade. Her work has been widely broadcast and anthologized; she has released four CD’s, written and produced five plays, and her latest performance project SPIN (starring The Bicycle as Musical Instrument, Muse, and Agent of Social Change) premiered at Buddies in Bad Times Theatre in Toronto in 2011, with the new album featuring the music from the show produced by Don Kerr.
