It’s an exciting day to be Mike Evin. Today, this Toronto-based singer and songwriter embarks on a massive Canadian Tour in support of his recently released record Life as a Lover.
Taken from the album, we’re pleased to premiere this special film clip of his latest single Al Green. With a little help from his friends, Evin showcases a lovely live rendition of the piano pop single with gorgeous harmonies at Charmaine’s Place (a takeout restaurant based in Toronto). This video instantly makes us smile when witnessing how much fun everyone has bonding over music. When asked about the video, Evin told us;
“This was a magical day at Charmaine’s Place, one of my favourite places in Toronto. I invited some of the best singers I know, who also happen to be great friends. We warmed up for 2 hours by singing a bunch of Motown, Stax and reggae songs – we have all this on tape and I hope to release more later on. The best part for me was introducing my friends to Charmaine’s Place and to Zephie, Charmaine’s husband, who’s an old-school Jamaican musician. He played a big part in making everyone come alive that day.”
