Ashley Evans is a singer-songwriter from Tunbridge Wells. He writes songs about events in everyday life which haunt, inspire and obsess him. With a talent for combining soulful themes with well-crafted melodies, his powerful vocals create memorable, emotive tunes.
His love for music started at an early age when he wore out his dad's original 'Sergeant Pepper's' LP. He attributes his distinctive melodic sound and thought provoking lyrics to a teenage bedroom immersed in the sounds of the biggest and best guitar bands of the 60's and of a well established love for Oasis, Stereophonics and Blur. More recent inspiration has sprung from listening to Doves, Ryan Adams and Ed Harcourt.
All of these musical signposts merge to form the backdrop for Ashley's music coupled with a fascination with love, mortality, people-watching and on occasion inspiration from Jack Daniels.
