Since the release of her 2006 debut project, "My Beautiful Everything", Evie Haskell quickly caught the attention of Worship Leader Magazine (WLM), SongDISCovery, and others in the music industry. WLM praised her album saying, "Evie is a new worship artist that enters like a fresh breeze on the Christian music scene." Describing her music as "piano driven (with serious chops on that front) and a sweet, slightly airy voice that lets her songs of adoration move with grace beyond the status quo." After just learning that Until Then received First Place with Contemporary Christian Music International's songwriting contest, an announcement was made in March 2007 that she had received Album of the Year from Indieheaven.com, and soon followed an invitation to open for Grammy award winning, Third Day at a concert on the East Coast. Evie's song, Talk Me Home, also won the Adult Contemporary genre and was one of the top ten 2007 finalists with songoftheyear.com.
Keith Mohr, President of Indieheaven, has this to say about Evie: "I've been working with thousands of independent Christian artists since 1997, and it is seldom I come across an artist who moves me as much as Evie Haskell. Evie's passion and excellence are sure to increase the scope of her music mission in the coming years!”
In 2010, Evie released her sophomore album, "Rhymes and Riddles, Cartwheels and Cars". The album features songs inspired by the changes in her life. Marriage, a major move from her hometown of Portland, Oregon, and dream-chasing have sparked quite an array of creatively-written songs, some fun and quirky, some serious and melancholy, and a few in-between. Evie's thought-provoking introspection is laced with her sense of humor throughout the CD, which makes for an enjoyable listening experience.
"My music mission is to express and inspire life as it's meant to be: full, rich, and abundant. I believe Christ came for this purpose: that we might have life today and for eternity! I hope people who listen to the songs I've written gain a sense of the adventure and the purpose in which God has called us to live."
A graduate of Bethany University, Santa Cruz, CA, Evie is now serving as Worship Arts Pastor alongside her husband, Rev. Josh Herndon at The Sacred Church in Burlingame, CA. In 2011, Evie and Josh became parents to Norah Pearl Herndon.
Evie continues to devote herself to writing music, leading worship, and teaching music at a local private school.
