"Never one to shy away from changing style and direction, Evans has taken a musical scalpel to everything from honky-tonk to punky rockabilly to preppy Old 97's pop-rock, each time with class and muscle." - William Michael Smith - Houston Press - 07/23/08 John Evans can write a song...and make it sound like no other. His cleverly written tunes and unique delivery have been a mainstay in the Texas Music scene for over ten years. He has co-written songs with Hayes Carll, Adam Carroll and Roger Creager, to name a few. His latest collaboration with Creager (I'm From The Beer Joint), was the number 1 song of 2008 with over 27,000 spins, according to The Texas Music Chart. This singer/songwriter has been an award winner for eight consecutive years in the Houston Press Music Awards; taking home accolades that include: Best Male Vocalist, Musician Of The Year, Best Singer/Songwriter, Best Roots Rock and Best Country and Western. His music video for "Quicksand", from the album "Circling The Drain," won a Platinum Remi award at the 2005 WorldFest International Film Festival and another album track, "Swat'n Flies," appears on the soundtrack for popular indie film "Drop Dead Sexy," starring Jason Lee and Crispin Glover, which debuted at SxSW Film Festival and was released internationally in 2007. The John Evans Band spent most of 2006 touring the U.S. in support of "Ramblin' Boy." John Evans won Best Male Vocalist at the 2007 Texas Music Awards and continues to be a favorite of many publications with features included in the Houston Press, No Depression, Texas Music Magazine, Houston Magazine and more. Currently, John is releasing his new album, "LUCKY 13" with Smith Entertainment Records, scheduled to drop September 16th, 2008.

About this time 2 years ago I was lucky enough to meet John Evans and play in a couple of rounds with him. He is really one of the nicest singer/songwriters I have met. I just wanted to tell him thanks for being such an example of humility, talent, and distinct character. I really appreciate the encouragement and advice about singing, writing and performing. Have a blessed and happy holiday!:)

I met John Evans at a small recording studio in Houston, where we were both brought in on project that was far removed for our regular musical genre. Me being in the Blues scene, & John an obvious "Hillbilly" picker, we both felt like fish out of water on a Celtic-Rock recording session. I want y'all to know, he laid down the tastiest, twangiest guitar solo I've heard in a while. Later he played me the unmixed cuts off his new CD, & there isn't a bad song in the bunch. This young cat is HOT y'all! Buy his CD, go see him live, but don't let him pass you by.
