ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
On Evan Brubaker's second album, Half Moon, he splatters Pop, Folk, and Funk on the wall like a Jackson Pollack painting, creating a sexy canvas of upright bass, clavinet, drum loops, pedal steel and strings. Hanging quirky, intelligent lyrics on strong hooks, Brubaker twists the everyday into a funhouse reflection of itself.

Produced by Evan Brubaker, Half Moon features performances by keyboardist Julie Wolf (Laura Love, Ani Difranco), bassist Jason Mercer (Ron Sexsmith, Ani Difranco), and drummer Andy Stochansky (John Gorka, Ani Difranco) as well as noted session players Susan Pascal (vibes), Daniel Salini (strings), and Dan Tyack (pedal steel). Recorded in Toronto at Reaction Studios, the album was mixed by The A-Team at Spectre Studios.

Since the release of Half Moon, Brubaker has been in high demand as a producer, working some of the most exciting and varied indie talent out there. Holly Figueroa, Edie Carey, Darryl Purpose, and Kym Tuvim are just a few of the artists whose records can be found right here on CD Baby.

Brubaker trained at the Oberlin Conservatory before working as a sound man and guitar tech for guitar legend Michael Hedges from 1992-1997. Half Moon is the follow-up to his 1997 release, Third Floor, which was selected by Performing Songwriter Magazine as one of the Top 12 Independent Records of 1997.

CD Baby


Ah, yes. Perfect, current Americana meets some no-nonsense modern rock grit, tasteful electronic and utterly flawless production, highlighting this gutsy songwriter who wraps up the best sounds of artists like Wilco and Elvis Costello and then takes his inspiration one step further into a rockin', groovin', edgy but fluid country-tinged folk rock cosmos. This boy knows how to hook his listeners.

Holly Figueroa

think you've heard it all? think again.
Evan might pay homage to Barenaked Ladies and Elvis Costello with "Half Moon", but he definitely doesn't sound like them...or anyone. Evan reigns supreme in turning convention on its ear, refusing to write songs that could fall into the annals of folk music mediocrity. Instead he writes innovative, hooky pop songs that make you wish either 1) you were him or 2) you knew how to do something other than music, cause you'll never be THAT good.

Plus he's a cutting edge, phenomenal producer. Oh, and a nice guy, but don't let that get out.
