Update 3/12/20: Due to Governor Jay Inslee’s restriction on events over 250 people, this concert has been postponed. No word on when it’ll be rescheduled.

Brooklyn-based artist, EVAN GIIA, is a rising vocalist, entering into music as a classically trained opera singer. She has a soulful, atmospheric, alt-pop sound and toured with ODESZA in 2018.

EVAN GIIA is pushing boundaries, as an independent artist who creatively has self-directed her music video. She’s setting out on her latest tour this week, with a stop in Seattle on Thursday, March 12 at Neumos.

Tickets are $15-18. Get them here.

Seattleite: How would you describe your sound? 

EVAN GIIA: I hate to put a genre on my music because it can range from a pop ballad to a rap banger, but I would say electropop.

Seattleite: Tell me more about your GIIA SWEAT playlist on Spotify. What inspired it?

EVAN GIIA: I have been a spin instructor and yoga teacher for years so I have been collecting an archive of songs that really push you. My clients used to say that my playlists are what got them through their workout with me. I wanted to share that with my GIIA GANG.

Seattleite: What’s your workout of choice? 

EVAN GIIA: I love yin yoga, body weight workouts, and spin!

Seattleite: What can we expect from your show in Seattle on March 12? 

EVAN GIIA: I have worked so hard on this show. My fans can expect a leveled up show, very energetic. I want everyone to be sweating by the end.

Seattleite: Tell me more about your latest single, Switch Off. What was your inspiration for the song?

EVAN GIIA: I wrote Switch Off for one of my best friends. They were going through a rough time and I wanted to make a song that we can blast in my kitchen, dance and let go. I made it with MEMBA at my house in Brooklyn, NY. I LOVE playing it live!
