Evangelista is one in a growing series of musical projects founded upon the talents of singer, composer, and instrumentalist Carla Bozulich.
Following the dissolution of Scarnella, her short-lived duo with guitarist Nels Cline and Bozulich’s solo debut with her reverent but wildly idiosyncratic interpretation of Willie Nelson’s classic album Red Headed Stranger, Bozulich traveled to Montreal to work on an album with members of A Silver Mt. Zion among the backing musicians.
Released in 2006, the finished product was called Evangelista and Bozulich launched an international tour in support of the album; joining Bozulich for these shows was bassist Tara Barnes, along with many of the artists who worked with Bozulich during the recording sessions.

Bozulich and Barnes began writing material together, and when it came time to make her next album, Bozulich opted to give their collaborative work a name of its own, Evangelista.
Bozulich and Barnes returned to Montreal to work with many of the same musicians who had appeared on the earlier album, and Constellation released Evangelista’s Hello, Voyager in the spring of 2008. The band veered into even darker, less structured territory on 2009’s Prince of Truth.
Opening act for Evangelista is B/B/S/. Founded in 2012 in Berlin and consisting of guitarist Aidan Baker (Nadja, Whisper Room, ARC), italian drummer Andrea Belfi (David Grubbs, Hobocombo, Il Sogno del Marinaio) and the norwegian Erik Skodvin (Svarte Greiner, Deaf Center), B/B/S mostly present improvised music: psychedelic sounds meet reduced fragments of melody and experimental drone textures. The first B/B/S/ album is in progress.
