    Featured Artist on EvO:R
    Frank Cotolo- Broadcaster, Musician and all around cool guy.

    For over four years now, Cotolo Chronicles has been the foremost alternative broadcast in the world, predating the controversial and popular podcast and breaking ground by defying the usual, tired talk-show formats.

    Cotolo is a veteran entertainer, author and journalist as well as a former commercial broadcaster. Google his name and you will find that he has more experience than most any indie broadcaster, adding to the warmth and inspiration of a program he insists has the obligation to "get your attention and make you think."

  • A Message from Our Founder
    Charlie Harrelson- Founder of EvO:R and solo guitarist TL2 The Independent Music world has become so fragmented that anyone entering into this arena will be lost without having a chance of survival. What every independent musicians needs is information, understanding and a path that leads to success. Sure, you can buy a few books from authors that never played a note or loaded a single amp into a moving van. Pipe dreams are all over the Internet.

    At EvO:R we pride ourselves with sections dedicated to Independent Music News called (The EvO:R Street Journal), Musicians Success Stories and Tips called (EvO:R-pedia) and a Musicians Testimonial Section called (The Goods) dedicated to Internet based companies that deliver on their promises.

    All this news and information and we don't charge a single penny. We also respect your online privacy by refusing to track your browsing habits while on our website. We simply want to deliver the BEST news information and success stories for the Independent Musician.

    Thank-you for visiting EvO:R and tell the world that we are out here..
    Charlie Harrelson
    Founder of EvO:R
