ABOUT MUSIC BOX AND ‘RUINS’
Kim Philley and Ned Evett met in Boise, Idaho, and before too long were performing their unique brand of indie folk in Southeast Asia. After recording their debut EP “Ruins” live to analog tape in October 2016, they completed a 27-state tour of the US, including an appearance at the Gram Parsons Derry Down in Winter Haven, Florida.
Ned Evett was born in Nashville, Tennessee, and is the winner of the 2003 North American Guitar Competition. His unique take on fretless guitar playing led USA Today to proclaim him “The Master of the Glass‐Necked Guitar.” He has shared the stage with some of the most legendary acts of all time, including John Fogerty, Joe Satriani, George Thorogood, Kansas and Leon Russell.
Musician/writer Kim Philley taught herself to play guitar on her Grandfather’s 1938 Gibson A4 acoustic, a true cowboy guitar and an American classic. She engages audiences with hard magic lyrics, framing her own twisted brand of storytelling. Her writings have appeared in the New York Times, The Best American Nonrequired Reading anthology and the BBC World Service.
