Recently multi talented instrumentalist and R&B singer Evan Michael Green aka EMG released the audio for his song, “New Identity”.
Beyond the lyrics that address his naysayers and doubters while he was risking it all living homeless, the track speaks to EMG‘s musical journey after he abandoned his blue collar corporate life out East trading it in for dreams of musical success out West in L.A – even if it meant being homeless for a few months.
“I wanted this so bad that I lived in my car from September 2016 to March 2017 when I was in Boston. I drove Uber 10 hours a day for 6 months so that I could start my label and so that I had time to do what I could do,” Evan said. “It wasn’t just because I was broke, it was because I saw it as an opportunity for me to get out to LA. Depression is a real thing and when I was working at the bank I was unhappy. I would rather die trying to pursue my musical dreams than die slowly at that bank withering away.”
But EMG‘s musical journey is not some short-lived day dream. Evan started off at an early age composing music by the age of 5 and it was determined that he had a rare gift known as “relative pitch,” the ability to identify or re-create a given musical note by comparing it to what he was hearing. From there EMG began learning music on a host of instruments from the piano to the bass guitar to the sax as he mastered the ability to use his musical gifts.
After high school EMG pursued a degree at the Berklee College of Music playing the sax, though it took time for Evan to find his way to singing R&B music. It actually wasn’t until the age of 20 that EMG began to really sing and write music lyrics as heard on the song, “Nice Voice.”
With the success of his album, All The Things That I Am last year, EMG has been gearing up for the release of all new music culminating with his song “New Identity.”
Coupled with the release of new music, EMG is continuing to release vlogs and behind the scenes footage via his YouTube page. This Fall he is also planning contests for fans as he gears up for a tour.
