Evan and John

Acoustic Folk Duo

…their work on the guitars is wonderfully intuitive - www.norules-nolights.com


Evan & John are an indie folk duo from Sarnia, Ontario, featuring guitarists and singers Evan Dawe and John Pilat. With influences such as Townes Van Zandt, Leonard Cohen, Simon & Garfunkel and The Milk Carton Kids, their music focuses on tight, complex harmonies, paired with entwined guitar playing, combining into one voice.

Since forming in early 2017 Evan & John have played numerous shows across southern Ontario and have opened for well-known acts, such as The Wilderness of Manitoba, Frank Deresti and The Lake Effect, and Max Marshall.

Evan & John self-released their first EP in early 2017, called “Friday”, which was recorded off the floor at the Cheeky Monkey Record Store in Sarnia, ON, in May 2017. In January 2018, they self-released a new EP titled “Little Songs”.
