Sam Evian

Need You EP (Saddle Creek)

Contact Jessica Linker about Sam Evian

New York-based Sam Evian, the project of songwriter, producer, and multi-instrumentalist Sam Owens, announces his “Need You” EP, a creative collaboration with Chris Cohen, out October 6th via Saddle Creek, and a North American tour supporting Nick Hakim. 


The EP was recorded over five days in Cohen’s garage studio in Los Angeles with Evian on guitar and Cohen on drums, and the two sharing overdubs. “It was a new process for me,” says Evian. “Normally, I record most of my music live with a band. With Chris, I had the chance to carefully consider each part. Chris’s playing on these songs is very special, and I think his production style is super clear and tasteful. I took the songs back to New York to cut vocals and mix, but I kept everything true to the sound we had out in California. The result feels really good and pure to me.”
