Evan Holmes with Exit Ghost

Galesburg, Illinois

Evan Holmes is a 22 year-old songwriter from Chicago,IL., and founding member of the alt-folk group The Days. Drawing easy comparisons to Neil Young, Sun Kil Moon, Will Oldham and the art-rock of Wilco, Holmes has taken the stages of some of the midwest's most prominent venues over the past few years, including Metro Chicago, the Congress Theater, Subterranean, Beat Kitchen, and a slew of solo college outings. His distinctively minimal, open guitar work and relatable stage presence with backing band Exit Ghost were recently described in Performer Magazine as reminiscent of "[Neil Young's]After the Goldrush on steroids". We'll take it.
