The first time Faroese Evi Tommysdóttir Djurhuus sang in public was at her own wedding in August 2010. Recently she released a single album with two country tracks.
Evi is 29 years old and has been singing a lot at home, inside the four walls but she hadn’t performed in public at all before her wedding. Evi practiced all night long before the wedding and performed the song for her groom. This resulted in him giving her a guitar as a present the morning after.
Since that day neither the guitar nor the voice has had breaks. She has been practicing very hard, from dusk to dawn.
Evi has recently taken the next step and recorded two well-known country-hits, which now are available on CD.
The new album is called “How’s the world treating you”. This is also the title of one of the songs. The other track is “He’ll have to go”.
The recording of the album found place in Kriss-Stuff Studio in Hoyvík, Faroe Islands, where Jákup Zachariassen has produced the songs.
