This bio is from Wikipedia: Evangeline was founded in 1988 by lead singer Kathleen Steiffel, bass guitarist/washboardist Sharon Leger, keyboardist/accordionist Beth McKee, lead guitarist Rhonda Lohmeyer, fiddler/mandolinist Nancy Buchan, and drummer Dudley Fruge.
The band entered a talent competition called Jazz Search in 1988, followed by the Marlboro Talent Roundup and the True Value Country Music Showdown. They were eventually discovered by singer Jimmy Buffett, who signed them to Margaritaville Records. Evangeline released its self-titled debut album in 1992, under the executive production of Buffett.
Although this album produced no chart singles in the US, "If I Had a Heart" peaked at #81 on the RPM Country Tracks charts in Canada. Fruge and Buchan left the group before the release of their second album, 1994's French Quarter Moon. This album produced their first US chart single in "Let's Go Spend Your Money Honey", a #70 on the Billboard country charts. Also included on this album was the song "She's a Wild One", which later became a Number One hit in 1994 for Faith Hill under the title "Wild One".
A third album, Louisiana Aye Yi Yi, was issued in 1996. The band's members have not recorded since.
Therein lies the sadness. I have Evangeline's first two CDs and I love them. That such a talented group of musicians could essentially disappear from the face of the Earth is a tragedy. I miss them, but I'm still lovin' you, this Evangeline.
