Despite being in his mid-twenties, it seems musician Evan Mui has been a perennial member of Lake Worth's music scene for ages. With stints in Palm Beach County favorites like Guy Harvey and the Dewars, Mui has more than cut his teeth. His newest project Wake Up has given Mui a chance to spread his wings and strike out on his own -- and it looks like he's struck gold, as well.
Wake Up's blend of chiming hooks, Superchunk-y guitar riffs over Mui's crackling J Masics-ish vocals has been raising eyebrows. His band has landed on local label Decades Records (home to other notables like Band in Heaven and Jean Jacket), and with successful stints at CMJ and a current tour with Surfer Blood, it seems like breakout stardom is within reach for Mui.
