STEPHEN EVANS & THE TRUE GRITS
After many years of vacillating between being a professional musician and building a nest in Asheville, Stephen has been focusing on his love for writing and performing music.
In June of 2015, Stephen released his debut LP, “Something to Bleed”, with his band, the True Grits. The record received local and regional praise for its passion and creativity. The True Grits are Brian Shoemaker (bass/vocals), Sam Hess (drums) and Woodstock (mandolin).
The latest band EP release, “Under the Bridge” came out in 2017 to positive reception and local radio play as well. This record was engineered by Kyle Corbett, and produced by Stephen Evans.
Stephen’s strong melodic songwriting style is a blend of creative imagery of darkness and hopeful optimism. There is no denying the passion that shines through with his powerful vocals and lyrics. Songs like ‘The Garden’, ‘Cherokee Hills’, ‘1000 Roses’ and ‘Shining Star’ are beacons of his folk rock songcraft. With local radio play on WNCW 88.7, 98.1 The River, and the local online radio station, Buzz Radio Asheville, shows around the Carolina region, Stephen Evans & the True Grits are becoming a local favorite. With a new record on the way for 2021, they look to continue that trend.
