After a two-year break since her last release, Brisbane-based folk-roots troubadour Sian Evans is back with the hauntingly beautiful single 'Thorns'.
A collaborative effort featuring the talents of Daniel Biederman (keys), Scott Greenaway (bass, kit, lap steel, BV) and Luke Moeller (fiddle), Sian's 'Thorns' was a finalist in the folk category at this year's Queensland Music Awards.
"There is a certain sense of relief when your track makes it out into the world," Sian says. "People individually will take something from it or they won't. Reaching that point of surrender is kind of liberating."

Originally a song written in Far North Queensland, 'Thorns' was polished between Central Coast, Nashville, Northern Rivers and Sydney. "'Thorns' is a folk song. It's also a love song.
"It's no secret songwriting is a powerful tool for expression and healing pain, but metaphorically 'Thorns' definitely depicts how anything worthwhile has elements of both beauty and pain, and that's just how life is. Take the good with the bad. It's not going to be comfortable all of the time. Or even half the time."
