Carnegie Hall Veteran and Music Award Winner for PWW Fundraiser at the Dome

Ipoh-born Lynn Yew Evers will be returning to her hometown for a concert on August 7 to raise funds for PWW, the Perak Women for Women Society, in aid of women and children in crisis.

Lynn’s musical talent playfully surfaced on a toy piano at the age of four. Gifted with a perfect ear and intuitive understanding of music, she began performing at age six and composing and improvising by age nine. Lynn had undeniably found her calling early in life, and began her musical career as early as 15 years old as a piano coach for children. Inspired by classical greats such as Beethoven, Chopin and Rachmaninoff, she went on to obtain a degree from the Trinity College of Music in London. She returned to Malaysia determined to further explore and develop her lifelong passion for music and immediately began to shine as a performer, arranger and composer.

Since 1985, she has organised and performed in a multitude of concerts in Malaysia and acted as accompanist for renowned choirs and ensembles. She has performed for the late Sultan Azlan Shah on a few occasions as well as the Prime Minister and other Malaysian dignitaries.

Lynn moved to the USA in 2009, where she now lives in Spokane, Washington with her husband and two children.

Although Lynn’s music harmoniously combines a New Age, Classical and Contemporary influence, the greatest inspiration for her new song “Without Words” has been her devoted relationship with God and nature. “The intention behind my music is to gently guide the listener into the tranquility of nature, to experience their surroundings as I do – full of melody and harmony,” Evers expresses.

A Pianist/Artist for over 35 years, she is passionate about removing cancer from the earth. Her beloved father passed away from cancer which brought her to be involved with CancerLink in Malaysia.

Lynn’s latest album ‘Elysian’ was declared a Global Music Awards Winner. In her own words on the cover of this album, Lynn describes her journey to Elysian over the last 15 years: “It started with pain, sadness, heartache, the unknown and finally a light at the end of the tunnel – a hope, a vision, paradise to come. Now I see peace, beauty, happiness, contentment. Each day shines with glorious days ahead. I have hope, I have a vision, I have ELYSIAN.”

Lynn’s many accomplishments include her collaboration with Grammy Award Winning Guitarist Will Ackerman at his legendary Imaginary Roads Studio in Vermont. Her second solo piano album “Dawn of Peace,” is a captivating production which truly captures the excellent ability of Ackerman and his team to effortlessly synthesize with the vision of the artist. “Dawn of Peace” brings to light the fluidity of Lynn’s music while expressing her intuitive sense of translating the peaceful melodies expressed in nature. The close of 2015 brought Evers to the prestigious Carnegie Hall in New York where she performed select pieces from her award winning album “Dawn of Peace”, voted January 2016 Best Album in the ambient/instrumental category by Akademia.

October this year will see Lynn performing once again at Carnegie Hall, an accolade of the highest order for this Malaysian lass who has moved so far away to pursue her passion and yet her heart remains in her home town of Ipoh where she will be performing in August for a worthy cause.
