ABOUT

evonka333

Before I say anything else I want to say this: I enjoy singing Hard Rock/Classic Metal the most. Indeed, these are my favorite genres of music and what type I have been singing for all these years. That said, even above all that I just enjoy singing!!! As such please do not hesitate to contact me if what you do is not hard rock/metal. I have sung (and still do sing) just about all other genres of music there are. So no matter what you perform/are looking for in a singer please just contact me! Thank you!

Also: Soon I will be uploading a vocal sample that is of a different genre other than the ones listed here.

Let me introduce myself and tell you somethings about me:

My name is Yvonne Zukosky. I was born and raised in the Hazleton, PA area.
I went to my first concert at the age of 12. It was a Rainbow concert. I was right down in front. When Ronnie James Dio came out and began to sing I was transported to the Rock/Heavy Metal Heaven and I still live there to this day. I began to sing that day. I still continue to sing and I will not stop until I drop dead. All through the decades of the 80's and 90's I made many attempts to join a band as the lead singer. Every one of the bands' turned me down. Not nessessarly because I could not sing but mainly because (I believe) I am a woman. I am sure you are aware of the fact during those decades it was not cool to have a female lead singer in rock/metal bands. By the end of the 90's at some point I just said, "f**k it!' and I gave up trying to join a band. Since then and currently what I have done is to hire myself out as a singer for special events. When performing in this setting I sing anything the client requests me to sing. I sing at weddings and at any special event. I have even sung at a few funerals. It is odd I know but up until now I have never had a pro video done nor have I done a pro recording. That fact is about to change however, because I am in the process of doing this now. All I have done/am doing is just to go to auditions and sing live for the prospective clients. I guess if you like I could make a (not pro-recording but using something like a cell phone) to make a recording of me singing a sampling of songs (without the music as I have no band of course!) I would be happy to do that for you. I could get this to you as long as you keep in mind it is IN NO WAY going to be a good quality pro-recording. No matter how good or bad I may sound on it, just know I am MUCH better live.

I would also like to tell you a few things about my personal life that you might find helpful:

I live near Palmerton PA (18071.) My husband and I (we are child-free by choice, although there is certainly nothing wrong with having children. It just isn't for us) have lived here since 2007. I did work for 15 years in the medical profession however, a few years back I took an (very early) retirement to fully pursue my passion. That is my home art studio called Evonka Art. I do not have to depend on my art studio for money so I only work in it when I want to. Other than that all of my time is mine to use as I choose. I have a stable marriage. In fact, I have a good relationship with all of my friends and relatives. I sometimes refer to myself as 'The Anti-Drama Queen.' The reason I do that is because I have almost no (bad) drama in my life. I like it this way and so I keep it this way. Oh and this is probably the most important thing for you to know about me: I do not think I sing well. Why? Because I am only as good as YOU think I am. It is true I enjoy singing but as for my opinion of how well I sing I am neutral. Yes it is true the majority of people I have sung for seem to like the way I sing however, I am only ever as good as the other person's opinion at that moment. Those people over there might like my singing but you may think I suck. And that really is just fine. If you do not like my singing and/orfor X reason you decide you do not want to work with me it's all good! Speaking of working, please know this: I do not come with a bad or conceited attitude. I am very humble. The way I see it, first off I am thrilled you are choosing me! You are the boss, not me. I work for you. I sing what you want me to sing. If you would like me to sing 'Mary had a little lamb' than that's what I sing because really I am very grateful and honored to be singing for you and yours.

I am telling you all of this because I want to show that (and because I consider myself very committed) I actually do have the time (and the means) to be available to you anytime you want me to be. Thank you for your time!
