Musician/Songwriter/Local Performer – Mike Evin – Volunteer at DramaWay!

Check out his official video: https://youtu.be/QQxmO5rxMcE

We are delighted to finally be posting this write up about our talented Volunteer Mike Evin. He is a man of many talents and we are proud to share all that he has done. It’s an honour to have someone of his calibre volunteering with our SingingWorks & DramaWorks program.  What a true joy he is to work with! We are happy to have you on board Mike.

 

The joyous spirit of piano-pop songwriter Mike Evin pulses through his music, uplifting and soulful. He’s earned a devoted following throughout North America, and among some of Canada’s most renowned musicians – like Barenaked Ladies and Ron Sexsmith.

 

The songs shine through the speakers on Evin’s fifth full-length album, Life As A Lover (released Fall 2015 in Canada) – an ode to finding new love and learning to live with loves past. Tastefully produced by JUNO-nominee Howie Beck (Feist, Walk Off the Earth, Hannah Georgas) in Evin’s current home base of Toronto, the album bounds through exuberant handclaps, funky finger-snaps, ohh la la backups and catchy synth lines.

 

In 2015, CBC Radio 2 called Evin the next big thing”, and the lead single “Have I Ever Loved?” was among the Top 20 most played songs of 2015 on CBC Sonica. “Al Green” reached #1 on Sirius XM’s The Verge. The video for “Have I Ever Loved?” won hearts with its cast of seniors.

 

Following the release of his debut album, the always effervescent Barenaked Ladies were so taken by Evin’s energy that they took him under their collective wing and helped produce his second album, I’ll Bring The Stereo. They also introduced Evin to a whole new audience by inviting him to perform on their annual Ships & Dip music cruises.

 

Evin’s live show, solo or as a duo with drummer Ian MacKay (Basia Bulat), never fails to grab hold of a crowd. Over his travels of living in home-town Montreal, New York, Halifax and Toronto, Evin has shared stages with not only the beaten upright piano he’s toured with but Canadian colleagues such as Barenaked Ladies (twice a featured artist on their Ships & Dip), Sexsmith, Dan Mangan, Sarah Harmer, Royal Wood and Jill Barber. In the Fall of 2015, he and MacKay completed a 30 date tour across Canada and the US. Stay tuned for news on an international release and tour.

 

 

Our Actors make a difference in the Community!

Lindsey Chalmers has been a member of DramaWay for years.  As we enter our campaign season, we’d like to highlight her as one of our outstanding Performers. For those of you who don’t know Lindsey check out all she has accomplished to date.  She’s a stellar lady!

Lindsey has always been an avid athlete beginning with the Caledon Cougars Basketball Team when she was a youngster. In 2007 Lindsey moved with her family to Etobicoke and immediately joined the Etobicoke Stingers Special Olympics Basketball Team and the Etobicoke Eagles Baseball Team. She has participated in countless tournaments throughout these years and has always enjoyed and been proud of the camaraderie and team spirit that these two teams have exuded.

 

Lindsey graduated from Heydon Park S.S. in June 2013 and was presented with the Edith L. Groves Award for the student demonstrating Determination, Self-Advocacy and Compassion throughout her high school career. She then attended Humber College for two years in the Community Integration Through Co-Operative Education Program followed by one year in The Culinary Skills Program sponsored by Christian Horizons and Humber College.

 

Lindsey has also had a passion for the arts all her life, beginning with music lessons through the Humber College Community Music Program. She has been part of the Theatre Orangeville Youth Program, DramaWay’s DramaWorks and RhythmWorks Programs at Swansea Town Hall and Centauri Summer Music Theatre Dance Camp where she trained in Hip Hop, musical theatre, ballroom and breakdancing. Besides attending countless musicals over the years, in May 2012, Lindsey acted in a Clearwater Theatre Company production of Seussical the Musical at the Meadowvale Theatre. In 2014, Lindsey was part of a cast of 5 actors with disabilities in a play called Wolf Sounds that ran for two weeks at The Box Theatre in Toronto.

 

In 2013, Lindsey participated in the Mentorship in Motion project where she created an original painting that has been displayed in art exhibits in Toronto, including at the McMichael Gallery in Kleinburg.

 

In 2015 Lindsey participated in the Disability/Visability Photography Project held at the Jewish Community Centre in Toronto and her photograph was displayed in their gallery this past February.

 

Lindsey just got hired this fall by McDonald’s Restaurant and is so excited to start her first paying job using the skills she has acquired through her culinary program.
