Texas musical maniac Andy Evans‘ latest record, Miracle is a representation of everything that makes this kind of music great. A soulful poet, his straightforward guitar-playing accompanies vivid lyrics that show his knack for poignant storytelling. Evans shares his boundless creativity and ongoing experiences through introspective live performances and polished recordings. He has been inspired by great classic rock, folk and alt-country artists and musical philosophers, including Rush, The Allman Brothers Band, Tom Petty, Elton John, Fleetwood Mac, Shovels & Rope, Jack White and Ryan Adams.
Evans’ solo debut, Miracle is a sultry, saucy and bittersweet mix of groove-heavy songs that stroll through stories of love, heartbreak, joy and hope.
Evans grew up in Charlottesville, Virginia, where there was a steady stream of songs in his childhood home. He was introduced to Texas country, gospel and the red dirt music that was coming out of Oklahoma after joining the Navy and getting stationed in Ingleside, Texas. Moved by the sound, he began to write his own songs as a release and a way to document his journey.
Now blazing a new trail with his solo career, Evans has been active for many years on the local music scene in central Texas, playing guitar, singing and building a following as the front man of the blues-rock outfit Andy Evans & The Brotherhood. He has played shows with Brandon Rhyder, Sam Riggs and has frequently collaborated with North Texas singing-songwriting fixture Clayton Landua of Six Market Blvd.
With his feet planted in Austin, Texas, Evans is currently putting together a series of live shows in support of his first release. Miracle will be available in January 2016.
