On Friday, September 10, Noni Evans celebrated her iTunes release at a wellattended, intimate concert event at Windisch-Hunt Fine Art Gallery in Coconut Grove. Noni Evans performed the first three singles now available on iTunes, “Running Away,” “Just a Kid” and “Floyd.”
Noni is a Miam- born and raised singersongwriter with a passion for powerful ballads and pop-rock styles. She was influenced by music at a very early age. She began performing as a child in school whenever given the opportunity. All of her experiences led her to attend a Performing Arts High School for Musical Theater. There, she developed her passion for dance and theater. Soon after graduation, Noni eventually ended up taking the stage at Bougainvillea’s, a local bar in South Miami.
After singing as a “guest performer” with bands such as Corner 3 and C.O. Jones, belting out popular Janis Joplin songs night after night, Noni caught the attention of Luis Salazar who runs an independent record label in South Florida called DIAHS Records. They began working together in the summer of 2007 on her first single, “Floyd” and continue to write together with hopes of releasing another threesingles on iTunes by the end of 2010.
