17-year-old Kansas singer-songwriter Evann McIntosh (they/them) announces exciting new album Character Development will be released on 27 August through Mom+Pop Music.
Written and recorded primarily in the rising star’s suburban bedroom, the 13-track collection mixes dark alt-pop and ethereal R&B with some hip-hop, jazz, and funk added to the mix. It’s an intimate tale of self-expression as it addresses themes of growth and evolution, gender identity, sexuality and freedom. The album paints a poignant and revealing portrait of modern adolescence, from an artist exploring their own unique psyche with every song.
The new single NOBODY ELSE is a sweet, R&B tinged track about the excitement of being in a healthy relationship. The light hearted music video perfectly encapsulates the singer’s confident spirit and charming individuality.
“NOBODY ELSE’ is about monogamy and the idea of there being one person for everybody, and that you’ve found yours.” – Evann McIntosh
The sheer poetry of Character Development is Evann McIntosh’s way of life, both insightful and unpredictable, earnest yet playful in its lyricism and style. Producer and long-time collaborator Jesty Beatz plays a stellar role in ensuring thriving, musical arrangements that fully showcase McIntosh’s talent. Character Development follows McIntosh’s acclaimed 2019 debut, MOJO – a digital success that enjoyed over 31 million streams. The record quickly caught the attention of esteemed indie label Mom+Pop Music, who requested a Zoom meeting with McIntosh and subsequently signed the artist, right in the midst of the COVID-19 pandemic.
