Biography

Contemporary music that is both engaging and detached in its approach to unveiling the complexities of wrought, human emotion. Evans creates his own aesthetic, mixing vivid mood and sensual lyrics with sonic exploration that mirrors the investigation we experience as humans. His music abandons convention, creating unique song structure and unmarked melodies. His voice is one that will linger, almost haunt, once you've turned off the music, paralleling his honest lyrics that remain in your head long after the song is over. Evans is quite possibly writing some of the greatest "life songs" ever in his depiction of struggle, reward, and candor. Abandoning convention with his unique song structure and melodies, Evans presents an album that is seducing to the palate of those looking for an innovative approach to alternative, modern rock. Borrowing heavily from the musical styling of Sonic Youth, Jeff Buckley, and Morrissey, Evans is creating a sound that is accessible to a mainstream audience and filled with enough invention to satisfy the modern art-rock elitist. It's a contradiction that works. His voice, mystical and captivating is one that will linger long after the song has finished, one you won't want to forget.

Lyrics

Pretty Lights

Written By: James Evans

pretty lights and city streets
i can't wait to see you there
pink champagne in the pouring rain
i know everything about you

ooooooooooooooooooohhhhhhhh

i saw your face from the 14th floor
i can't wait to see you there
i heard a scream i hit the floor
i know everything about you

you think sometime the weather is fine when in line would you spare a dime
you left me in the shivering cold what's this waiting for

then there's you and there's me
together.........FIRE

pretty lights and city streets
i can't wait to see you there

In a Well

Written By: James Evans

i know rides aren't free
been breaking my back to make sure we succeed
beat a dead horse if it makes you feel ok
beat a dead horse if it makes you feel ok

hush little baby don't you cry
momma's on a cloud up in the sky
wave to the night and kiss those lips good-bye

throw me in a well if it makes my dreams come true
lying to myself is all i tend to do
throw me in a well if it makes my dreams come true
lying to myself what a stupid thing to do

hush little baby don't you cry
momma's on a cloud up in the sky wave to the night and kiss those lips good-bye
beat it to a drum to clear your head
don't look at the demons in your bed say a little prayer and rest those weary eyes

don't leave me this way
i can't be on my own
i won't be ok
so far from home

hush little baby don't you cry
momma's on a cloud up in the sky
wave to the night and kiss those lips good-bye
beat it to a drum to clear your head
don't look at the demons in your bed say a little prayer and rest those weary eyes

Favorite Dream

Written By: James Evans

I'm in this moment
I'll never forget
She is my dream My favorite dream
I want you so bad
Something I never had
Don't make a scene
Don't make a scene

You walked by I saw you there
Every man just stopped and stared
I was more than glad to be your fool

I'm in this moment
I'll never forget
She is my dream My favorite dream
I want you so bad
Something I never had
Don't make a scene
Don't make a scene

You walked by I saw you there
Every man just stopped and stared
I was more than glad to be your fool
Nobody's a lot like that
All these ways I should not act
Make no mistake I came for you

Your fool....Your fool....Your fool

I'll never forget I'm in this moment
Something I never had I want you so bad

You walked by I saw you there
Every man just stopped and stared
I was more than glad to be your fool
Nobody's a lot like that
All these ways I should not act
Make no mistake I came for you

Your fool....Your fool....Your fool
