Something to Bleed

Stephen Evans & The True Grits

"Something to Bleed" is a record that blends dark, brooding rock with fun, uplifting Americana.

After years of putting his music career on hold, Stephen Evans has finally released his debut CD, "Something to Bleed". This record is a sweet blend of dark, brooding rock and fun, uplifting grooves. With solid vocal melodies and delicious dancing counter melodies, one will find themselves humming these tunes long after the music has stopped playing. The lyrics are creative and pull you into dark, romantic scenarios then send you spiraling upward with hope. The album features Stephen Evans (acoustic guitar / lead vocals) with his band, the True Grits, backing him up.
The True Grits: Brian Shoemaker (bass / lead guitar/ tambourine), Sam Hess (drums), and Woodstock (mandolin). Special guests: Halli Anderson of River Whyless (violin / backing vocals), Scot Evans, his brother, of Floating Men (bass) on the song '1000 Roses', and Barbara Evans, his mother, (backing vocals) on 'Sound'.
