Evan Field is an accomplished singer/songwriter who is comfortable in writing in a variety of musical genres. His versatility is based on his personal belief that "a song should should be judged on its ability to tell a story and the melody and groove it creates to deliver that message."

Biography

At the age six, Evan’s mother pushed Evan into music – literally. Under tremendous protest he was forced to take up the violin. Six months later, he was grudgingly squawking out standards such as “Mary Had a Little Lamb and Twinkle Twinkle Little Star.” After two grueling years, Evan was allowed to give up the violin and moved on to a more agreeable instrument, the guitar. The first time he picked one up he fell in love.

A couple years passed while Evan honed his guitar playing. It wasn’t long before he formed his first band in high school, duly called the “Numbnutts.” The band’s first original was “Baby Don’t You Leave Me Tonight” and was recorded on a 4-track recorder. The song got quite a bit of airplay on the school’s radio station and overnight Evan became instantly popular overnight.

Evan continued to play in bands throughout his college years and expand his musical skills by learning to play both the piano and bass instruments. Drawing on a variety of musical styles ranging from alternative, pop, blues, and traditional rock, he began to develop his own unique sound and style.

Rather then get caught up in a particular musical genre when writing, Evan instead focuses on the particular merits of an individual song. To this day he lives by one musical rule; “ you know it when you hear it” referring to an indescribable groove or beat that any song may have – be it any style or form of music.

Today, Evan performs in local venues and performs solo in coffee houses and pubs. His passion continues to be writing and performing his own songs. Most nights when not playing or performing, Evan can be found in his home recording studio laying down tracks for one of his songs. Currently, he can be currently heard on his MP3.com website as well as on several local radio stations. Some day soon, Evan plans to expand his music market to a national level.

Lyrics

That'll Be Me

Written By: Evan Stein

That’ll Be Me

If you’re wonderin’ just who that is.
Sitting alone, his hat hiding his face.
Starring at a photo in his trembling hands.
Yeah, that’ll be me; that’ll be me.

That’ll be me, taking her for granted;
staying out night after night.
That’ll be, always havin’ to be right.
Yeah, that’ll be me; that’ll be me.

If you’re wonderin’ just who that is;
sitting there, falling off his chair.
Drowning all his sorrows in another bottle of beer.
Yeah, that’ll be me; that’ll be me.

That’ll be me whisperin’ in her ear;
words of devotion and how I love her.
That’ll be me; so proud of myself;
knowin’ she don’t know about the others.

That’ll be me, broken down and lonely;
seein’ for the first time what I lost.
That’ll be me; holding on at any cost.
Yeah, that’ll be me; that’ll be me.
Yeah, that’ll be me; that’ll be me.

Damned If I Do

Written By: Evan Stein

Damned If I Do

She’s at her mothers waitin’ by the phone;
she may be waiting awhile.
I’m not so sure that I want her back,
and begging just ain’t my style.

I love that woman, but she made a choice
when she walked our front door.
Left me standing alone in the dark
like she did the time before.

Damned If I do;
Divorced if I don’t.
Maybe I will,
or maybe I won’t.

Sittin’ on the porch with a beer in my hand
drownin’ in my thoughts.
I made a promise for better or worse,
but how much of me will this cost?

It’s the same old story just a different day;
she strays when she gets bored.
And when she’s tired of her cheatin’ways
she’ll be knockin’ on my door.

Damned If I do;
Divorced if I don’t.
Maybe I will,
or maybe I won’t.

I said damned If I do;
Divorced if I don’t.
I probably could;
I know I should.

Should I stay or leave behind
20 years of memories;
then I think back on what she’s done to me
and all I want to do leave.

Damned If I do;
Divorced if I don’t.
Maybe I will,
or maybe I won’t.

I said damned If I do;
Divorced if I don’t.
I probably could;
I know I should.

Damned If I do;
Divorced if I don’t.
Maybe I will,
or maybe I won’t.

I said damned,
I said damned,
Damned if I do.
Maybe I will, or maybe I wont.

Let Go

Written By: Evan Field

You bang your head against the wall.
You scream until your throat is raw.
You hold on tight until your fingers bleed.
Well, what you want isn't always what you need.

Let God and Let Go.
You can't do it on your own.

Driven by pride, you try to push on through.
And when nothing changes, your fear imprisons you.
The life you knew slowly slips away;
it's all you can do to make it through the day.

Let God and Let Go.
You can't do it on your own.

You've got to trust and turn it over;
Believe tommorrow will bring a brand new day.

Let God and Let Go.
You can't do it on your own.

Lonely Life

Written By: Evan Stein

Lonely Life

It’s 3am, and I hear a knock on my door;
There you stand like a cat comin’ out of the rain.
Tears fill your eyes as you beg for one more chance;
I wanna believe; I wanna believe - yeah.

It’s a lonely, lonely life
Living here with you
It’s a lonely, lonely life
Living here with you.

It’s 10am, and roses arrive at my desk
With a note from you that says that this is just a test.
And not to give up; that somehow we will rise above.
I wanna believe; I have to believe….

It’s a lonely, lonely life
Living here with you
It’s a lonely, lonely life
Living here with you.

Soon the sands of time will wash your sins away.
And you’ll forget all about the reasons you wanted to stay.
This is our sad story – yeah, this is the game we choose to play.
You play to win, and I play to lose….

It’s a lonely, lonely life
Living here with you
It’s a lonely, lonely life
Living here with you….

Don't Tase Me Bro'

Don't Tase me bro'
I only ask a simple question.
I want to know
your thoughts on voter suppression.

Don't Tase me bro'
I only need some information.
I have to know
who cuts your hair.

I know my rights
I don't want to fight with you.

Don't Tase me bro'
I only need some information.
I want to know
your stand on immigration.

Don't Tase me bro'
I only ask a simple question.
I have to know
where you like to vacation.

I want to shine like a shooting star.
Don't wanna be afraid of the dark anymore.

Don't Tase me bro'
I only need some information.
What does the future hold
for my generation.

Don't Tase me bro';
I only ask a simple question.
I have to know
who cuts your hair.

Don't Tase me bro'.
