October Evans is a non-binary transgender musician/singer-songwriter, MC, lyricist, multi-instrumentalist, artist/painter, filmmaker/producer/director/screenwriter, Deaf comedian, photographer, model/actress, former podcaster, Deaf vlogger, blogger, small business owner and an activist with over 20 years of multi-industry/multimedia/business experience,  who nows permanently lives in Vermont after many years of homelessness, traveling everywhere with a suitcase and a few items.

With brutally honest, unapologetic lyrics with true depth that's rarely written in this particular style, accompanied by edgy but original music and hauntingly beautiful melodies, her music is very passionate and unparalleled by very few musicians, rappers and bands that has ever rarely pulled off this level of musical artistry.

Bridging genres of alternative rock, grunge/post-grunge, indie folk/acoustic rock, Gothic rock/industrial, electronica, hard rock, queer punk, Americana and nu-metal, October's raw yet astounding styles of instrumental music (often accompanied and written by hired guns/studio musicians), thought provoking lyrics, and grungy/hauntingly beautiful vocals both captivate and challenge her audiences. Emotionally-charged, yet soothing at times depending on the elements of each song she's ever done, she is in your face, swimming about in your thoughts to challenge you to see things outside of your comfort zone and touches your hearts to weep along to the messages behind each song she writes/produces/record/performs, etc.

October has recorded & toured internationally as a solo artist, backup singer/rapper in a total of 7 different bands and one rap group (all while during her pre-transition and post-transition as a non-binary trans woman under a deadname/birth name and then legally changing her name to October Rain Evans in 2014) in the different local underground/independent music scenes in Texas, all over California, Seattle, Portland (Oregon), NY and the New England area for the past 20 years before embarking on her short lived self-titled solo project in 2014 and has opened for various open mic gigs, talent shows and music festivals, paying her dues since starting out at a young age of 11 years old, after leaving a violent, transphobic, conservative, racist broken home and a abusive family behind back in the small hometown of Smithville, Texas, being on her own since her younger years.

Now turning 32 soon, in addition to her music, she has gone on to pursue her writing/poetry career, her art/painting projects, chasing her dreams of launching a new indie filmmaking career, starting a Deaf vlog series and having launched a brand new blog, among other creative/artistic projects. She is also an activist in her spare time for the Black Lives Matter movement, the sex work industry, the disability community, the mental health community, the transgender/non-binary community, the immigrant community, the Native American tribes and the LGBTIQQA+ community, donating to causes/charity organizations whenever possible and educating people on issues affecting the various marginalized communities struggling in extreme poverty and suffering in cruel inhumane conditions at the border in Southern states like Texas, or fighting Big Oil to prevent pipelines from being built and advocating for legislation like Medicare-for-All, the Green New Deal, decriminalization for sex workers nationwide, medical and recreational marijuana legalization/decriminalization and donating to progressive candidates like Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, Bernie Sanders, etc.

Besides her many creative/artistic projects in film, art/drawing/painting, writing/poetry, etc., she is currently working on a brand new farewell anthology album box set, titled Breaking the Silence: 20 Years of October Evans, featuring 3 brand new EPs, at least 4 more additional bonus discs that includes additional never-before-released original songs and cover songs and a making-of/behind-the-scenes documentary film on DVD, slated for a Summer/Fall 2020 release, along with new official music videos and lyric videos to be launched, a brand new merchandise store and farewell tour dates to be announced coming soon. She’s looking forward to retirement now that she has gone permanently Deaf and continuing to pursue her many other creative/artistic projects after the farewell album is released and the farewell tour ends.
