Biography

Recognized as one of the foremost vocal interpreters of jazz and standards on the Canadian scene since surfacing in Montreal in the early-1990s, George Evans has been celebrated diversely as “a ballad’s best friend” by the All-Canadian Jazz Festival, and “an agile voice and always swinging” by the National Post. George tours actively, and has been praised for his lively, polished performances in major clubs in cities such as New York, Montreal, Toronto, Vancouver, and Shanghai. Since 1997 has released a total of seven CDs as a leader plus a ballad compilation. The current album, “LIVE at the Cellar” can be heard on jazz outlets across Canada and the US.

George Evans first thrilled Toronto jazz audiences in 1999 when he launched his second album “I’m All Smiles” at the Top o’ the Senator. He went on to appear there with regularity through the launch of his fifth album “Movie Songs’ in 2005. Over the years George became familiar to audiences at home through frequent appearances on TVO, Bravo, and CoolTV, and through his many sessions and concerts for the CBC. He was the founding member of The Three Crooners, and in 2004 he selected, sequenced, and produced the successful “Here Come The Boys: a Canadian Crooner Collection” for Maximum Jazz and Universal Music Canada.

George Evans has been nominated by the Manhattan Association of Cabarets for a MAC Award, as well as being a three time National Jazz Awards Canada nominee as “Male Vocalist of the Year” and “Vocalist of the Year”, and as Ontario Independent Music Awards “Jazz Artist of the Year.
