About Us:
Brian Evans dreams of hearing his music on the radio; as an up and coming country music talent, this is to be expected. Oddly enough though, when he was only six, his only dream was to run a radio station. “I used a Singalodeon karaoke machine to record shows onto cassette tapes. I arranged CD's by song tempo, wrote up transitions based on the lyrics and just started recording,” Brian recalls. “M y parents and the neighbors complained a lot about the noise.” Growing up in Deer Park, Texas, a town 20 miles south of Houston, Brian was exposed to a heavy dose of country music. Whether it was his grandfather pickin’ the guitar on Saturday mornings or his brother playing George Strait to coerce him to sleep at night, Brian came to appreciate the art of country music. This love of country music didn’t fade and Brian entertained the idea of performing country songs as he sang in a number of grade school choral productions. He finally got his chance at a solo in the eighth grade; his rendition of “To Make You Feel My Love,” which was inspired by Garth Brooks' version of the song featured in the movie “Hope Floats,” sealed his musical fate. “No one had heard me sing country music before and all eyes were on me. They were sitting there in anticipation and I was standing there ready to let my voice be heard,” Brian remembers. “When the crowd erupted at the end of the song, I knew at that moment that I wanted to be Brian Evans the Country Music entertainer, not Brian Evans the baseball player, football player or basketball player.” Brian upped the ante at 19 when he competed on the locally televised talent show “Gimme The Mike, Houston.” The benefit of the experience, plus two congratulatory calls from his boyhood idol Clay Walker, fueled Brian’s desire to pursue music full-time. He had gained a wealth of performance knowledge and decided it was time for him to load up his pick-up and chase his dreams all the way to Nashville. While in Nashville, Brian formed great friendships and really took the time to become a student of “the business” learning from a select group of knowledgeable and well-respected individuals. The most notable: Jim Catino of Sony Music Nashville. “Jim mentored me during my time in Nashville,” said Brian. “I was extremely 'green' and he helped by providing insight about the ins-and-outs of the industry. The best advice he ever gave me was to find myself, figure out who I want to be, expose that niche, and the rest will take care of itself. I remind myself of that every day.” Brian eventually was led to a crossroads where he had to make a very important life decision. In the fall of 2006, after intense consideration, he headed back to Texas to finish his business degree at Texas State University, temporarily putting his budding music career on hold. Now, in 2012, Brian has found his way to newly formed A-Blake Records which has signed him to a development deal. “You know, it’s quite cliché to say this, but it amazes me how things really do tend to work themselves out,” says Brian. “I have a new partnership with A-Blake Records and I have spent valuable time writing and searching for the right material to perform. My wish is that there is at least one song during my show that resonates with every walk of life.” With songs ranging in tempo from heartfelt to boot-scootin', those bases are covered. "Smalltown America" tells of the longing for a simpler way of life. “Hard To Be Good" is a toe-tapper of a tune that dances around the cat and mouse games played on the dating scene yet "The Real Thing" is a floating on cloud-nine song perfect for those who have finally found the right one. A clever play on words, “Real Survivor" shows a good ole Southern boy poking fun at the TV show "Survivor" and "Everything's Coming Up Peaches" is a fun, friendly song about living the good life. see more at www.brianevanscountry.com
