Evan Taubenfield is well known as the guitarist and producer for Avril Lavigne, so what is he doing teaming up with Okinawan girl rockers Stereopony ? ? ?
Well, early this year, the singer and guitarist of Stereopony, Ami Haraguni had to have an operation on her vocal chords and so the band had to stop touring.
Drummer Shiho Yamanoha and bass player Nohana Kitajima decided to go to the USA to explore some different musical influences and develop themselves as muscians and while they were there they met Evan Taubenfield.
Nohana and Shiho began working with Evan Taubenfield and formed a side unit together which they called Evanpony. Once Ami was recovered she went to LA and they recorded this track which was released in October this year.

Things Get Interesting ! ! !
Stereopony have announced they will disband at the end of this year to follow different musical paths. The gossip is that Nohana and Shiho will work with Evan as Evanpony.
So what about Ami ? ? ? As you know from my recent post YUI has announced that she will take an indefinite hiatus , but, it has been confirmed officially she will be playing with Strereopony ( like a member of the band ) for some tracks at one of their concerts in December.
In my post earlier this year I highlighted the co-operation between Stereopony and YUI in the past, including being the only band she had ever written a song for. So now the rumors and gossip is that Evanpony will be Nohana, Shiho and Evan and there will be a collaboration between Ami and YUI ! ! !
Of course this is only internet gossip so it absolutely can not be relied on . . .
But remember . . . .You heard it here first ! ! !
