Audiences who attend the Break the Chains Tour will learn to expect the unexpected during upbeat concerts that feature music ranging from folk singalongs and political punk anthems to reggae and Afro-Latin rhythms of rebellion. Evan Greer and Taina Asili, unique in their musical styles, both harness the power of music for revolutionary social change, making it irresistible for audiences to join in, sing along and dance.

The Break the Chains Tour is an extension of the popular Break the Chains semi-monthly dance party held in Boston, MA, founded by Evan Greer. The Break the Chains dance party is headlined by live bands that focus on lifting up the voices of queer and transgender performers, artists of color, and other marginalized musicians. The tour will share the same goal of breaking down the systems that keep us apart and bringing diverse audiences together around music, dancing, and social justice.

Evan Greer is an LGBTQ parent, organizer, and multi-instrumentalist who writes fearless and dangerously catchy original songs that inspire hope and incite resistance. Equally at home leading singalongs in a union hall or sweating at a basement punk show, Evan has developed a cult following across North America and Europe, and has had songs featured on NPR, in college courses and major independent films. At 28 years old, Evan tours internationally as a musician and facilitates workshops and trainings to support movements for justice and liberation. Howard Zinn called Greer “an eloquent and energetic writer,” who “reminds me of Phil Ochs." Evan has shared stages with artists as musically diverse as Billy Bragg, Immortal Technique, Gil Scott Heron’s Midnight Band, Holly Near, Against Me!, The Coup, Pamela Means, State Radio, Gaslight Anthem, Hurray for the Riff Raff, and Chumbawamba. Tom Morello, guitarist of Rage Against the Machine writes, "Evan Greer continues to write inspiring folk music in the tradition of the great protest singers ... a heck of a guitar player."
