He began by making his friends to watch him perform to records of his dad’s band, Four Saints. He progressed by playing the trumpet in various school bands, singing in the choir, and performing in musicals. In his 20’s, Stephen was inspired by his brother, Scot Evans, who was the bassist/vocalist in the regionally successful band, Floating Men, from Nashville, TN. Stephen started his own rock band, Mean Season, in the late 80’s where he began honing his songwriting skills on the guitar. After a few years of local success and radio play in Tallahassee, FL, the band moved to Atlanta, GA to increase their success. Unfortunately, the band broke up, and left Stephen to try his hand at performing solo around Atlanta. Soon the jammed highways of the big city drove him to the beautiful mountain town of Asheville, NC in 1996, where he quickly began soaking in the creative influence of his amazing surroundings. After many years of vacillating between being a professional musician and building a nest in Asheville, Stephen has focused on his love for creating and performing music. In June of 2015, Stephen released his debut LP, “Something to Bleed”, with his band, the True Grits. The record received local and national praise for its passion and creativity. The band members are Brian Shoemaker (bass/electric guitar) Sam Hess (drums) and Woodstock (mandolin). The latest EP release, “Under the Bridge” came out in 2017 to positive reception and local radio play as well.   The Krickets are a female Americana group from the gulf coast who's music is what Paste Magazine calls a "a truly stunning, one-of-a-kind sound." With a specialty in swamp harmony, the group's genre-bending songwriting has allowed them to play for diverse audiences from listening rooms to official performances at SXSW. Their title track of their most 2018 album, Redbird, was just named Alt Country Song of the Year at the 2019 Independent Music Awards.
