It’s been a few years since I first saw the original incarnation of Envoi in a dingy concert club on the east side of Cleveland. Back then, it was more of a post-hardcore outfit, slinging Jonny Craig inspired vibes from the Grog Shop’s stage. These days, things are far different. A fresh lineup and a new direction is carrying the band’s name to new heights. This version of Envoi is clean, able, and well prepared.
Now fronted by vocal power-house Maddie Finn, these Cleveland natives are rising phoenix-like from the ashes of their past. With local support and a quickly growing web following, Envoi are buffeting the airwaves in more venues and bedrooms than ever before and they aren’t stopping anytime soon.
On April 5 of this year, the band’s début EP will be released to the public, celebrated by a release show at the aforementioned concert club. Changes is, no doubt, reflective of the transformation as a band and individuals as well. A perfect summer jam to boot.
