John Evans grew up in the small rural town of Denbigh in North Wales and after finishing school and Art college embarked on an album debut with his school friends Alan and Linda Thompson under management contract with the Windings recording studio home to resident drummer Steve Washin...See Full Bio
“John has proven that he can deliver both more traditional sounding tracks and more experimental electronic tracks. It is this contrast that makes Still Got The Blues a really interesting listen. “Coming Home” is one of Still Got The Blues' standout tracks. A driving rhythm, some excellent percussion work (courtesy of Jan Back) and a catchy melody make it one of the most memorable tracks.The tail end of the album is where things get shaken up, and the direction changes - “Tranquility” is perhaps the most interesting offer on the album, combining the organic instrumentation with electronic sampling. It shows Evans' creative side in a different light. Joining Evans on Still Got The Blues are numerous friends and musicians, including fellow Redhill members Alan and Linda Thompson. Lindas vocals can be heard throughout Still Got The Blues and her harmonies add a sweetness and different shade to Evans, particularly on “Blue,” “Still Got The Blues For You” and “Fisherman's ”
