James Christopher Evans began writing and playing music after graduating college. He found it as more of a reinventing process, than a continuation of early years. James writes material based on personal life experiences that have come to shape his life. Love, death, and romance are at the heart of his music and most are based on real life experiences. This is said to be the reason for James' music to be so accessible to his listeners. Self taught on guitar, piano and vocals this, as yet, unfound talent is a romantic at heart with plenty of material yet to be recorded. Some of his musical influences include Jeff Buckley, The Cure, The Smiths, Sonic Youth, and Rufus Wainwright. James Evans' sophomore release, Fighting Pigeons was recorded at Orphan Studio in Atlanta, GA. James teamed up with producer Glenn Matullo (John Mayer, Shawn Mullins) to create a smoother more mature sound. James shows his personal growth as a songwriter, flexing his storytelling ability, filling in the spaces with catchy guitar hooks, memorable lyrics, and powerful vocals. Fighting Pigeons was released in spring of 2008 under James' new label, Horse King Entertainment. This album truly tells the story of hardships, love loss, uncertainty, while trying to grasp a hold and make sense of this short ride called life. Evans stays true to himself, taking what life throws at him, dealing with it, and turning it into something beautiful for his listeners to embrace.
