An Evening w/ Evan Taylor Jones
An Evening w/ Evan Taylor Jones
Evan Taylor Jones is an eclectic soul-rock artist and singer/songwriter from Orlando, Florida.

Born in Inglewood, CA, Jones is no stranger to the struggle that bared his family and the community who live in the area. His voice is truly a revelation of the experiences he's known growing up. Jones is the youngest of three athletic boys; raised by a single Mother, who he now claims as his Guardian Angel. When Evan was just 13, she passed quite suddenly from lymphatic cancer. From there, Jones began slowly dissecting the classic music he remembered his Mother enjoying. Excelling in high school, as a scouted basketball player, music began to play an important role in Evan's life after he tore his labrum during District Semi-Finals. While healing from the injury, Jones began his journey with a guitar.

Jenny Kloote, a Lead Entertainment Advisor at Walt Disney World theme park (Orlando) may have said it best: "His voice is like bread and butter; so smooth and tasty, I can almost eat it." Evan represents the soul of the late-greats and classics from the Motown and Mussel Shoals era, with songs centered around love, peace, happiness and triumphant over-comings, embellished stylistically in edgy rock 'n roll. Do not let the dread locks fool you! Jones is nothing shy of Lenny Kravitz in his prime.

ETJ performs hundreds of shows each year and has had great opportunities to connect with new fans. Jones now, gratefully, reaches fans in over 34 countries. Shortly after his first official studio release, 'Songs From An Old Soul', Evan went on tour with a six piece band, trekking through the Southeast of America. In 2015 thus far, ETJ has had the honor of playing for a sold out crowd when he opened for Bob Marley's legendary band, The Wailers, at the House of Blues in Orlando. Altogether, Jones has played five shows at this HOB location with well over 1,000 people in attendance each time.

Currently promoting his new music titled, 'The Sunray Sessions' Live EP, Evan has made it available for purchase and streaming at online distributors such as iTunes, Google Play, Spotify, Amazon Music and 20+ more worldwide! The six song compilation (4 originals/2 covers) was recorded live in a 14 hour session day at Sunray Recording Studios of Orlando, FL with a total of nine musicians in one room. Matthew Humphries, a former songwriter for Celine Dion wrote a note after listening to the tracks saying, "This young man is the real deal. What a voice and spirit. Every song was the best version I ever heard. I hope and pray that ETJ gets to perform on the biggest stages of the world." Truly, Evan Taylor Jones is a powerhouse artist and is making that known, more and more across the globe.

You can catch Evan on his North American tour coming 2016, dates and locations soon to be released.
