Skope Magazine Interview


by Skope


Savarre is fronted by Shannon Denise Evans whose creative career spans a number of disciplines: artist, singer, songwriter/composer, playwright and novelist. At her core, however, she is simply, formidably—a storyteller.

Everything Shannon creates has her blood running through it—and her spectra rock band, Savarre, is no exception. As the lead singer, lyricist, and co-composer, Shannon’s raw and impassioned vocals give vibrant life to the music’s anthemic lyrics. Her gift for storytelling is as apparent onstage as it is on the page…And her voice—big, bold, and expansive—is an uncontainable force.

The EP’s first track ‘Blood Under The Bridge’, is an unflinching and expansive, anthemic rock tune that vaults to the rafters while maintaining a sense of groundedness. Second, serves up ‘Haven’, an unapologetic and emotionally charged rock ballad that soothes and claws at the soul in tandem. What follows is ‘Art of the Bleed’, a sensual and sensorial journey anchored by a bass-heavy groove. Fourth, is ‘Awake’, an existential plunge into our very humanness, driven by fat rock riffs offset by the purity of acoustic piano. Next, is ‘Scars’, a stripped-down piece where the song’s raw and searching lyrics are on display. Last, is ‘Unbeautiful’ a self-exposing rock staple that turns a heartbeat into a rumble.

‘Blood’ is due out—in full—this summer. Pulsing with textural sound while balancing the tension of edgy rock and vivid storytelling, Savarre’s unvarnished authenticity, musicianship, and lyricism will burrow into your bones.
