Influenced by the Memphis music scene, 23-year-old Evvie McKinney’s unique merging of good ol’ gospel vibes, current pop sensibility and deep-rooted soul has her perfectly positioned for international acclaim. In 2015 Evvie moved to New York to go on tour with her brother’s band, Gedeon Luke and The People. She attended Memphis’ Soulsville Charter School, then was accepted into Stax Music Academy. In 2017 she joined the “Take Me to The River” Tour and in 2018 she competed and won on the inaugural season of The Four: Battle for Stardom on Fox.
Meghan Trainer co-wrote Evvie’s Motown Gospel debut single, “Bring TheWhole Hood". Now living and recording in Nashville, Evvie truly wants to “Bring The Whole Hood” along with her on her journey...or as she sings, “when I make it, we make it.”
