Singer/Songwriter/Guitarist. I write mainly in the contemporary acoustic style, however, my love of blues and contemporary rock seems to rise to the surface regularly and I'm more that happy to go with that. I suppose that I see myself as a songwriter first and foremost, but I do enjoy the whole process of recording and performing with all the many and varied highs and lows that come with it.
Technically, the albums have grown with recording technology innovation (some would say cheating!) but hopefully, the songs will speak for themselves and stay true to their acoustic, sofa based origins.
If there are any songwriters, muso types working in this genre anywhere near me (Stamford Lincs) and you want to get in touch.....please do. If you're interested in performing then thats good too! (am I coming across as a bit needy?).

All songs at johnevanstunes.com .Two new albums. Chums is a folk based concept album about 3 best friends who grow up together just in time to go to war in 1915. This collection of songs is unapologetically Folk, from start to finish, It just seemed to fit the subject matter so well. The second is a new album titled The Dreaming and is a bunch of contemporary songs, some observational, some narrative and others very personal. Thanks for looking in, hope you enjoy the music.

Hi John, thx for nice review of Sweet Summertime. Funny how I have gotten 3 random reviews from you in last couple of weeks, but I sure appreiciate it and am honored. Your recommendations are spot on. In fact, the story right not is that it is kind of a prototype at the moment and i plan to take it down soon, just wanted to get some feedback fot it. I could not play the guitar in proper meter. So my producer put piano music in proper meter and I played to that, however, that made my guitar sound mechanical and not as natural. Then when it was mixed, because the guitar is not that great, the piano and other instruments are more prominent. My feeling, and others too, is that is works best if it is a guitar song, coffee house style, and maybe some other instruments sprinkled lightly in to enhance. I am working on redoing the guitar with proper meter and to sound better and then it should accomplish that. If not, I my hire a better guitarist to handle that. The male vocals are mine, and again you are spot on. I think my vocals are too prominent, and in fact, i am leaning toward bringing in a better male vocalist for the background vocals. Hopefully the female vocals are good. I think some of her lyrics are not that clear. So all in all, will redo the song, but glad to see you like the song itself, just production and arrangement need some work. Thx.
