Evelyn Evelyn are a musical duo formed by Amanda Palmer (of The Dresden Dolls) and Jason Webley. According to the fictional backstory described by Palmer and Webley, the duo consists of conjoined twin sisters (aka "Eva" and "Lyn"), Evelyn and Evelyn Neville,[1][2][3][4] who were discovered in 2007 by Palmer and Webley. The twins are actually portrayed by Palmer and Webley,[5] dressed in connected garments.

Some disability-rights advocates have questioned whether Evelyn Evelyn plays into stereotypes regarding disability.[6][7]

Discography[edit]

In 2007, the band released a 3-song, colored 7" vinyl record, along with a 6-track CD titled Elephant Elephant, which was released in a limited edition of 1,111 copies on Jason's label (11 records); it quickly sold out. The package also contains Amanda and Jason's story of how they met the Evelyns, as well as the process of recording the vinyl, and a sticker of the two-headed elephant, Bimba & Kimba.

A full-length album, Evelyn Evelyn was released March 30, 2010, followed by a worldwide tour.[8]
