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.
The thing is, I never really know what to say in these sections. I have noticed however, that other people use the 'third person' approach, so here goes...John Evans is a good bloke who loves to play guitar and write songs... is that any good? I suppose I could throw in some quotes for good measure..."makes a great dovetail joint" (The Woodworker june 97), "always cleans up after his dog" (puppy weekly Sept 04), "He still owes me a fiver" (anon).
I suppose that what I'm trying to say is that it doesn't really matter where I was born or what my hobbies are. All I'm asking is that you listen to the songs with an open mind and if you don't like them, then thanks for your time. If you do, (and you know some big wig in the music biz, then please run off and tell him/her right now!) then get in touch, I'd love to hear what you think.
Well, that's about it....oh, by the way, I'm into naked stamp collecting and the history of flavoured jelly!.
