WHAT OTHERS SAY:

Evan Greer is an eloquent and energetic writer. (S)he reminds me of Phil Ochs."  
  --Howard Zinn, historian and author of 
A People's History of the United States

"Evan Greer continues to write inspiring folk music in the tradition of the great protest singers. 'Never Surrender' contains an urgency and earnestness that is uniquely her's...and (s)he's a heck of a guitar player. I suspect that songs like 'Ya Basta!' and 'Picketline Song' will be heard at the barricades for years to come."
