About Evie Irie
An Australian pop singer and songwriter with a rich, soulful voice and vulnerable lyrics, Evie Irie made her major-label debut with the EP 5 Weeks in LA in 2019.
Irie started performing in cafés and restaurants around her native Sydney at a young age, writing her own songs from the age of 12. She turned to the experiences of her older sister for material on some of her early songs. Three years later, in lieu of doing an exchange program like many of her friends, her parents agreed she should take some time off to visit Los Angeles (and, ultimately, New York and Nashville) to write and shop labels. Irie not only found interest in her songs in the U.S. but reportedly started a bidding war in Los Angeles and ultimately signed with Republic Records. She was 16 years old when they released her first EP, 5 Weeks in LA, in mid-2019.
