Evan Greer is an eloquent and energetic writer. (S)he reminds me of Phil Ochs.

Evan Greer continues to write inspiring folk music in the tradition of the great protest singersâ€¦ and (s)he’s a heck of a guitar player. I suspect that songs like â€˜Ya Basta!â€™ and â€˜Picketline Songâ€™ will be heard at the barricades for years to come.
Tom Morello, guitarist of Rage Against the Machine
