Evan Griffith Dando is an American musician and frontman of the Lemonheads. He has also embarked on a solo career and collaborated on songs with various artists.
The Lemonheads were formed in Boston, Massachusetts, in 1986 by Evan Dando with the group quickly creating three raucous albums under a local Boston label Taang! full of discordant punk chords and alt-country-tinge melodies. An Atlantic Records deal led the band to mature their sound in the fourth studio album and collaboration between Dando, songwriter Tom Morgan and future bassist Nic Dalton, that created radio-friendly singles and mellow melodies began to grow the fan base. Subsequent albums “It’s A Shame About Ray” and “Come On Feel The Lemonheads” focused on Dando’s vocals and turn of phrase and with hits such as “Into Your Arms” the group had a worldwide touring appeal.
Dando released a magnificent solo album “Baby, I’m Bored” in 2003 and continued to create music born of 70s punk and cosmic country. Dando’s 2008 album “Varshons” was a collection of well-known cover tracks set a new experimental tone and with the 2019 release of “Varshons 2,” The Lemonheads return for their tenth studio album.
