Happy New Year everyone!

I just wanted to thank y'all for helping to make 2023 a wonderful year for Stephen Evans & the True Grits by supporting the music coming to shows, buying and streaming the music, and following us online. It's a pleasure to share the musical experience with you, and we look forward to more in 2024.

No more spotify for us

We are in the process of removing our music from Spotify, and not using the service again for any reason due to the changes in their policy regarding paying artists which is: https://support.spotify.com/us/artists/article/track-monetization-eligibility/
So they will basically be paying the royalties that you earned with 999 streams or less on your song to people that got 1000 streams or more for their song, and you get a big fat ZERO.
Our first two albums are already removed. Buzz of Bees and the singles are in process because I used a different distributor. You can still find us on all the other services like Bandcamp, Apple Music, Tidal, Deezer, Amazon, etc. Plenty of other services pay for song streams so you will find the music on every other service, except Spotify. Fuck Spotify.

Apple Music Stats

Thank you Apple Music Listeners!

We all seriously appreciate everyone listening to our latest album "Buzz of Bees" via Apple Music! We are now at 2057 streams! Spotify listeners have some catching up to do at 916 streams, but thank you to all that listen there as well. The band is really grateful that y'all like the music.  Thank you!

The True Grits and I had an incredibly fun, burning hot show yesterday at The RailYard Blk Mtn !! Thanks so much to all of the friends that came out and the folks that were there enjoying the music. Also, thank you to the staff for taking such good care of us. It was a fantastic day! Special thank you to our friend, Nick Mac, for helping us out doing incredible sound tech for us, and to Meghan Raven Long for this picture. Can't wait to do it again!
