Evan Taylor Jones (SOUL/ROCK)
Evan Taylor Jones is an eclectic soul-rock artist and singer/songwriter from Orlando, Florida. Born in Inglewood, CA, Jones is no stranger to the struggle that bared his family and the community of people from the area. His voice is truly a revelation of the experiences he’s known growing up. Jones is the youngest of three athletic boys; raised by a single Mother, who he now claims as his Guardian Angel. When Evan was just 13, she passed quite suddenly from lymphatic cancer. From there, Jones began slowly dissecting the classic music he remembered his Mother enjoying. Excelling in high school as a highly scouted basketball player, Evan’s life took a turn after he tore his labrum during District Semi-Finals. While healing from the injury, Jones began his journey with a guitar.
