Evan Garmon & The Burroughs / Bio

Evan Garmon - is from the small town of Indian Trail, located just outside of Charlotte, NC. Evan has seen alot of highs and lows during his 31 years and draws from his life experiences to fuel his songwriting. His songwriting is surprisingly honest, and his lyrics ring true for so many listeners. Many have said that his lyrics come straight from the soul, because they hit home, all too well. With a very unique and unrefined singing voice, he amazingly delivers raw and intense emotion in a surprisingly pleasing and delicate way. He is an intriguing songwriter with something to say and he has the heart and soul to say it.He sings to his audience as a friend, in turn, the barrier that might normally exist between the stage and audience, is nonexistent.(pcash0212@gmail.com)

Todd Askew - Is a graduate of East Carolina University and adds a cool, down home spin to the band's music. His harmonica, only currently recorded on two live tracks, adds such solid melody to the songs. These guys have not played together for very long at all, which is truly amazing because when you see them play, it's as though they have been playing together for years.

Butch LaValley - has been playing Bluegrass for several years and has picked with many musicians around the Greensboro area. He started out playing the guitar, then switched to the Banjo almost immediately. He has taught beginner Banjo for years and he states that, "there is nothing better than pickin' with friends. With a passion for music, Butch brings so much to the band.(f1butcher@bellsouth.net)

Ben Best - Ben Best, a High Point native and UNC School of the Arts graduate, is an American screenwriter and actor. He is the co-creator and co-writer of the television show Eastbound & Down. Ben is an occasional member of the band and brings about a great addition to the band when he plays.

Such a great experience that I would recommend them to anyone who appreciates great music!
