Evan Cobb Featuring Laura Mayo And Her Boyfriends at Rudy's Jazz Room
Multi-instrumentalist Evan Cobb is a leading force in Nashville's vibrant musical scene. Known foremost for his tenor saxophone playing, Cobb is in demand as a jazz player, session player, and horn section member. He has performed with a wide array of artists including Steven Tyler, Aretha Franklin, Cage the Elephant, Dr. John, Irma Thomas, Brett Eldredge, Andra Day, Patti Austin, Mike Farris, JD Souther, Anderson East, the Dynamites, and the Nashville Symphony. His newest record Hot Chicken was released on Ear Up Records in September 2016 & is a finalist for the Nashville Industry Music Awards Jazz Album of the Year.
Born too late in Memphis TN, Laura Mayo has an old soul and a haunting voice. Raised on Ella Fitzgerald and Keely Smith, she plays with melodies and tone in a way that is both childlike and ancient. She cut her teeth singing BGVs in some of Nashville's top studios and touring the country supporting acts such as Quinn Deveaux and Corey Chisel. She is now stepping into the spotlight and performing her original music for the first time in addition to showcasing her take on classic jazz tunes.
