❤ Evalynne McLaughlin is a transwoman, musician, artist and innovator born and raised in the Seattle area. Her interests are in the esoteric and what treasure hides away from the beaten path. She spent her whole life crafting her own unique style of music while undergoing a complete identity change to align herself with the intrinsic force that has always guided her feet. Her music and art reflects the deeper aspects of reality, consciousness and human nature while simultaneously attempting to make it something easily consumable for those who haven’t explored the true depths within the concepts. Recently she fell in love with rapping and has tied it in to her desire to break genre norms. Her current project is called “Cycle of Hands” which has been playing shows all around Seattle and has been collaborating with artists all around the world.
