At least once in their lifetime, every human will face their moment of tribulation, a moment when they question everything and feel like life is not worth living. However, turning these tribulations, problems, and heartbreak into a propelling force toward actualizing their dreams is the ability that many lack, and in this regard, Evan Pietrzak scores high.
Evan Pietrzak is the other member of the pop duo band Nigel & Evan from Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. Evan is a songwriter, performer, and lead singer for the band; and his artistic ability is one of the selling points of the brand. The duo is fresh off releasing their hit single “Where you Goin’?” which started as Evan’s simple journal entry. The single comes after receiving positive feedback from previously released songs like “Amazing!” and “It Hits Hard.” According to Nigel, the piece moved him to tears because the song relates to how he felt after his ex left him.
On what motivated him to build his brand, Pietrzak said, “Music is a very therapeutic thing in the world, and we want to give it to people who need it most. Music is our way of expressing each of our personalities, and it is something that we’ve been surrounding ourselves with our entire lives.”
On how he came up with the song, Pietrzak said, “I was going through a recent breakup, and I didn’t want to spend my time crying over it because it isn’t worth it. I just pulled out my journal, wrote down how I felt in that moment and turned it into a song. So I guess you could say songwriting is my way of coping with this crazy roller coaster called life.”
The duo uses no background tracks and no lip-synching. They depend on electronic instrumentals and real-live vocals and pure talent from both the lead singer (Pietrzak) and drummer (Seibert).
Before the official release, Nigel & Evan performed the single “Where You Goin’?” at various times during their virtual concerts. The song has received enormous positive feedback and is described by listeners as a catchy tune with meaningful lyrics. It is also a song for anybody who has gone through an emotional breakup or the loss of a family member and doesn’t know what the future holds. Primarily, the group’s targeted audience is teens and young adults. According to Pietrzak, even the simplest of lyrics and melodies can leave behind a massive impact. It catches the audience’s attention and exposes them to the truth and the song’s message.
According to Pietrzak, the band has no plans of stopping anytime soon, and in five years, he sees himself and the band going back to live shows and playing sold-out concerts, just as everybody else wants. He looks forward to a future where everything is back to normal, and people are going out and having fun, just the way they used to before COVID-19.
Evan is committed to showing that there is a new fast-rising music duo that is about to dominate the world and be the next pop superstars.
