Evan And Jaron ‘Party Session’ Produces ‘Amanda Lynne’

Evan Lowenstein of Evan and Jaron checked in with fans on Sunday (August 24) after posting the new song ‘Amanda Lynne’ on the sibling duo’s MySpace page (@evanandjaron). The track is the 48th song posted in their ’52 Sundays’ project, where they’ve been releasing a new song every Sunday on their MySpace page. Evan writes:

Every songwriting session starts with a little socializing. If you know the person you’re writing with, it’s more of a catch up sesh. If you don’t know the person, it’s about getting to know them… heck, you’re about to get really intimate with them and share personal information, you better feel comfortable!

A typical writing session for me consists of myself and another writer. On a rare occasion we’ll have three people. Sometimes we’ll go hip-hop and have a party–4 writers. I’ve done that a few times and it’s actually quite fun.

“Amanda Lynne” is the result of one of those “party sessions”. The upside, of course, is when you’re ready to demo the song at the end, you have a choir of people to sing on the song.

Evan And Jaron Don’t Take Themselves Too Seriously

Amy Klein of The Jewish Journal caught up with Jaron Lowenstein of Evan and Jaron, who admits in the last three years, he and his brother have learned not to take themselves too seriously. Fame and its fleeting nature is the premise of the sitcom they’re pitching to Fox, based on their lives. “We were in Lawrence, Kansas playing a car dealership for 13 people and a Bozo the Clown look-alike. And we locked ourselves in the car and we’re like, ‘We’re not gettin’ out, we are not gettin’ out,’ and we’re like, ‘You know what? We are getting out’,” Jaron says, punctuating his story with high-pitched melodic giggles. “And that’s the reality. It’s like a microcosm of the real roller coaster life.” Read more.

Evan And Jaron Excited About New Album

Evan Lowenstein of Evan and Jaron checked in with fans on his official website earlier today saying, “One good thing about not having gone into the studio yet is that we’re STILL writing more songs and we’ll have a plethora to choose from when deciding what actually goes on the record.
