Evie Irie Premieres New Music vIdeo for “The Optimist”
- Australian singer-songwriter Evie Irie signed to Republic Records and released her debut EP “5 Weeks In LA” back in June.
From the EP, she dropped a new music video for “The Optimist” on October 18th.
She recorded the EP on a month-long trip to Los Angeles.
Evie Irie told Pilerats about the EP, “The EP 5 weeks in LA started on one of my trips to LA. I came for a one-week writing trip at the beginning of this year with producer Michael Fatkin, and in that week, I had found my sound. Something that every single artist works for is finding the right sound that sonically, lyrically and emotionally fits them as an artist, and in that week, I found it. I was in LA with my dad and said that I needed to do something with these songs. The first step was to get a lawyer. So that weekend we got a lawyer through a connection from a producer in Nashville and by Monday he was sending my music out to everybody. For a solid three weeks, we were taking meeting after meeting with record companies, agents and managers. I also had the opportunity to work with some amazing songwriters and producers that were a HUGE step up from anyone I had worked with before.”
