Evan Taylor Jones is currently producing music for himself and other artists as well. At the end of 2019, Evan ended a fantastic year and a half of world touring with the professional a cappella group, Six Appeal out of Minneapolis, Minnesota (USA). During his time with them, he helped them to win TWO consecutive World Championship titles (’18/’19) in Moscow, Russia at the Moscow Seasons Spring A Cappella Festival; the largest a cappella festival in the World. While off-tour, he is playing his own soul-rock shows at Disney Springs in Orlando, Florida (USA) and building his music business on his off time. He often independently reaches out to contacts, books shows, plans tour runs, writes, records and produces music, and even makes time to cook, be a father, and maintain great health.
With all on ETJ’s plate, he still manages to curate quality music for multiple releases throughout the year. All of this for his fans, family, and friends. Jones is currently promoting his brand new release “FLY AWAY”; a cozy head-bobbing mix of gospel, rnb and hip-hop written by him, his brother Trey Allen & their longtime music friend J.TESFA!
EVAN TAYLOR JONES BIO:
Evan Taylor Jones is an eclectic soul & rnb artist and singer/songwriter from Orlando, Florida (USA). He’s the youngest of three boys born out of Inglewood, California. Jones had to contend with the passing of his Mother when he was only 13 years old. Gaining a Guardian Angel, Jones went on, beginning at age 18, to pursue a career in music and to this day sees no slowing down. From humble beginnings, playing in a makeshift three-man band with his two brothers, Jones moved and grew through a couple bands in his hometown until he could sustain himself as a full-time musician.
Jenny Kloote, a Lead Entertainment Advisor at Walt Disney World theme park (Orlando) may have said it best:
“His voice is like bread and butter; so smooth and tasty, I can almost eat it.”
Evan represents the soul of the late-greats and classics from the Motown and Mussel Shoals era, with songs centered around love, peace, happiness and triumphant over-comings, with some elements of edgy rock ‘n roll. Do not let the dread locks fool you! Jones is nothing shy of Lenny Kravitz in his prime.
Performing as a regular at Disney Springs on most nights of the month, Jones has performed for crowds from all over the world. In 2015, ETJ had the honor of playing for a sold out crowd when he opened for Bob Marley’s legendary band, The Wailers, at the House of Blues in Orlando. Subsequently, Evan auditioned for ‘The Voice’ Season 10 and made it to the blind auditions in February of 2016. With a short lived “reality television” life, Evan Taylor Jones was more than excited to stay true to his music vision of his music career and put all his focus into major independent projects.
In 2017, ETJ toured for a total of seven months out of the year after releasing what would be his most remarkable musical content, “Denim Heart”; an exciting nod to classic psychedelic soul-rock and blues! 2018, Evan was asked to join the World Champion and international touring a cappella group based out of Minneapolis, Six Appeal! Together so far in May of that year, the group traveled to Moscow, Russia to compete in the largest A Cappella competition in the world and won first place! They returned this year and won AGAIN, becoming the first vocal group to win two consecutive World Championships!
Myles Hunt, writer for Impose Magazine wrote after listening to ETJ’s song “Fly Away”,
“… a fresh piece of musical gold that is priceless from the legend, Evan Taylor Jones. The track, released in May, gives fans of Evan’s music a deeper sense of praise for his ability to reach greater heights than ever before. For those living under a rock, Evan Taylor Jones is a musician who is a jack of all trades…”
Truly, Evan Taylor Jones is a powerhouse artist and is making that known, more and more across the globe.
